December 13-15, 2019
Annual Woodstock Winter Wassail Weekend
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.

Consumer Night at the Vermont Farm Show
Essex Junction, Vermont
The Buy Local Market will present consumers with an ideal opportunity to "taste, learn and buy Vermont agricultural products" from across our state in one convenient place. The “Capital Cook-off,” an Iron Chef-type competition in which teams from the Vermont House of Representatives, Senate, and Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets will face off in a battle of culinary skills, will also occur again this year. Teams will have ninety minutes to create a dish using Vermont products bought at the Buy Local Market. There is no cost for parking or admission to the Farm Show, but attendees are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food donation for the Vermont Food Bank.
