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.
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.
Children & Pets
Children: This is an adult-oriented event located in a scenic farm and wooded area next to water. It is crowded, and can be loud and disorienting. We recommend that small children (infants and toddlers) be kept in strollers or carried by their parents. Older children and teens should be accompanied by a parent at all times. Pets: Please be aware that dogs are not allowed on Shelburne Farms property or at the Festival; and due to extreme summer temperatures, we very strongly discourage leaving animals in cars during this event.
