This year the Woodstock Chamber of Commerce is partnering with other community nonprofits — like Purple Crayon Productions — to offer a “taste” of everything for which the Woodstock community is known.

Elm Street, in the center of the Village of Woodstock, will be closed to traffic and filled with more than 50 participants. The Taste of Woodstock is a full day that includes Vermont specialty foods, wine and beer tastings, music, entertainment, arts and crafts. There will be something for everyone including Vermont made wine and spirits tastings.

Booths filled with Vermont brands including Eden Iced Cider; Vermont Farmstead, Billings Farm and Plymouth Cheeses and Mad River Distillers will fill the street. Local nonprofits including the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park, the Thompson Senior Center and Vermont Volunteers Services for Animals will join in the festivities.

Entertainment starts at 10 a.m. and will feature Vermont bands including Chris Powers followed by Off the Rails then it will be Sensible Shoes after that, The Four Horsemen, Woody Thompson and Brian Warren play. The ArtisTree Trio follows that, then comes four-time New Hampshire blues challenge winner Arthur James and the finale will be Toast. Lighting up the night as the shopping winds down will be the spectacular artistry of Woodstock’s own fire-spinners Mary Urban and Friends. In addition to these fine bands that will play in the center of Woodstock, other artists will be performing on the street including circus artists, sidewalk artists, drummers and fiddlers.
