Our 41st annual Harvest Festival on Saturday brought the community together to celebrate Vermont forest, farm, and food traditions. We've captured the day in photos here . And, view the festival from the air! We're so very grateful for our volunteers, vendors, sponsors, and everyone who makes the Harvest Festival possible. Photos by Brandon Parrish.
