Fall festivals in Vermont are a celebration of harvest-time and the bountiful gifts that mother nature and our hard work provided!
Whether harvesting grapes, apples, pumpkins, or the last of the vegetables from your garden, it's a proud and bittersweet moment that marks the end of warm days and the last hoorah before we all hunker down for winter.
The Champlain Islands have a deep history in agriculture. The land has been farmed for hundreds of years and much of it is still in agriculture today or preserved so that it can never be developed.
Fall festivals and events in Vermont in the Champlain Islands are a way to celebrate our food and beverage producers in one of the most scenic parts of the state.
