Armistead Senior Care and The Thompson Senior Center will take part in the "The Taste of Woodstock" on Saturday, August 13th starting at 10:00 a.m. Come join the fun and stop by our booth! The Taste of Woodstock is a festival of food, drink, live music, street performers, kids activities, dancing, tastings, and shopping that will be held Saturday, Aug.13, from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. in downtown Woodstock. 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. The children will enjoy the kids activity tent with fun, games, drumming circle, street chalk and crafts throughout the day sponsored by Purple Crayon Productions. Woodstock Farmers’ Market will be selling their specialty pulled pork sliders. 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. The Taste of Woodstock has had more than 2,000 people at this event for the past six years and it just keeps getting better and better.
