14th annual Vermont Woodworking & Forest Festival returns to Woodstock’s
Billings Farm & Museum this September!
WOODSTOCK, Vermont-Calling all lovers of farms, forests, and fine
woodworking! This fall, one event celebrates those great aspects of Vermont.
The Vermont Woodworking & Forest Festival will be held on Saturday & Sunday,
September 23-24, 2017 in Woodstock, Vermont at the Billings Farm & Museum and
the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park from 10am to 5pm each
day! The Vermont Wood Manufacturers Association has held this event for the
past 14 years and has once again been named a Top TEN FALL EVENT from the
Vermont Chamber of Commerce!
The farm and park are directly across the street from each other so visitors
can park for free at Billings Farm and enjoy both events easily! Visit with
more than 20 artisan vendors and woodworking demonstrators who will be in the
Visitor Center, barn, and on the farm lawn. Vermont wooden furniture,
utensils, jewelry, bowls, cutting boards, home & kitchen accessories & other
woodenware, toys, cabinetry, flooring, wildlife carvings, bowls, and all
other products made of wood will be for sale. The event has been held in
historic Woodstock for the past 13 years and is a quintessential Vermont town
that attracts visitors from around the globe being easily accessible from the
interstates and part of the Crossroads of Vermont Scenic Byway. As our hosts
and partners, the farm and park provide the perfect Vermont experience for
visitors from all over the US!
The scenic backdrop of the Farm along with live music by local musician Mike
Kelley, and locally sourced food from Mach’s Wood Fired Pizza and Back Road
BBQ, provides a perfect accompaniment for shopping or watching live turning
demonstrations outdoors. Meet the draft horses, sheep, jersey cows and
chickens as you discover more about Vermont’s farming and forest heritage.
