December 11-13, 2015  Woodstock's Winter Wassail Weekend
Woodstock, Vermont
Voted one of Vermont's Top Ten Winter events, the term has its roots in medieval England referring to the Norse, "ves heill" meaning "to drink to the health". Ale brewed with spiced apples and sugar was the warm drink given to the singers who went door to door during the Solstice. Christmas became interwoven with celebrations during the darkest time of the year.  Celebrated for over 25 years, the highlight of the weekend is a unique Wassail Parade with over 50 horses and riders dressed in holiday costumes and period dress from the 19th century. Concerts, holiday house tour, craft fair and more.
