Life Is A FestivalPosted by Darren Drevik on May 30, 2014 in Letters from Vermont | 0 comments
“Come ye to the fair”
This is such a great time of year. Summer in Vermont is a time for fairs and festivals, and it seems every weekend there’s a new exclamation point put on the week with a festival celebrating some wonderful aspect of life in Vermont.
This weekend is the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival. Next weekend is the Vermont Dairy Festival, just nine miles from our door in Enosburg Falls. Four days of musical performances, booths, incredibly delicious snacks and great shopping. Last month we enjoyed the Vermont Maple Festival. Only July 4 Montgomery’s traditional July 4th Parade — which attracts visitors from neighboring states — will be snaking its way right past our front door. In July Jay Peak Resort is hosting a two-day music festival with nine acts scattered over a Friday and Saturday. Montgomery’s annual Harvestfest will be August 23, and then Jay’s Bean & Brew Festival (coffee and beer) closes out the season on October 4.
In the middle of this scatter nine Farm-To-Table Dinners, our Library Art Auction July 11, a huge Golf Tournament and you quickly realize that there’s something to do every weekend. All this at the top of Vermont, where people think there’s nothing to do.
And that’s what makes this region so popular as a vacation spot. It’s why people drive four hours from Boston, two from Montreal and six from New York City. It’s why we’ve had guests drive from Virginia and Pennsylvania, or even fly in from South Carolina, Georgia and Texas. Because we provide you the chance to do as much as you want — or as little as you want.
The Phineas Swann is essentially a battery recharging station, where you can plug in and reset your priorities and your soul. Isn’t it time you came for a visit and rebooted?
