Art Start- Sugarbush Stoke Exchange

Thursday, August 2, 2012

August brings both the dreamtime of seemingly endless sunny days and a sense of urgency that warm weather fun is fast fleeting. The best way to enjoy summer's sublimity and alleviate the feeling of impending autumn is to spend some time in the Mad River Valley.  

One of the highlights of the season, the 15th Annual Vermont Arts Festival lasts all month long with events ranging from live performances and book signings to gallery showings and interactive exhibits. Oh yeah, we consider food and drink to be art too. Mmmmmm. 

Join us for the Vermont Arts Festival this month.
Check out the famous Taste of the Valley on Monday evening, hosted
at Lincoln
Peak. This event commonly sells out, get tickets early!

The first splashes of autumn's glory usually show up a little later than this, but the extra dry conditions of July may have stressed out some trees. Regardless, there is no more recognizable sign of things to come. 

We hope to see you soon.
