2015 Lake Champlain Islands Farm & Food Festival

2015 Lake Champlain Islands Farm & Food Festival

2015 collage of Farm & Food Festival

A huge success! Beautiful weather and over 400 attendees contributed to an awesome event. Over 60 attendees enjoyed cycling over the Colchester Causeway to the farm, with a free ride on the bike ferry (courtesy of our partner Local Motion). Thanks to our sponsors and volunteers, we were able to serve free pizza and popcorn. The Missisquoi River Band provided live music. And “a good time was had by all”!

Download in PDF format.
Save the date — Sunday, August 30th, 3:00PM-6:00PM —  for our third annual festival.  This year we have so much more to celebrate, with our many partners and sponsors and an expanded program!  In addition to the familiar format of farm and environmental exhibits, we are also a “Better By Bike” event.   Cyclists are encouraged to bike in the islands, with the festival as their destination.   An option offered by our partner Local Motion is to approach the festival from Colchester, over the causeway, using the The Island Line Bike Ferry for free.  So bring the family for free pizza and so much more;-)
