Cash Sales Only

At this time we are only able to accept cash on the day of the festival. An ATM will be available on-site, though festival-goers are encouraged to have cash on hand.


Cheese will be for sale at the event along with specialty food, wine, beer, cooler bags, and ice packs. Alcohol bottles purchased cannot be opened on site. Wine by the glass will be for sale.

Alcohol Policy

Vermont law requires that all attendees show proof of age (21) to be served alcohol. All attendees will be carded in order to receive alcohol tasting tickets and glass to sample wine, beer, & spirits. All attendees of age will receive a signature Festival wine glass for tasting. Serving alcohol to guests is at the sole discretion of our wine, beer & spirits vendors.

Pets + Children

Pets: No pets please, sorry.
Children: Strollers are difficult to maneuver in the main festival area and are discouraged.
