Artbits – April 25, 2013


The Maple Festival this weekend is the 47th edition of Vermont’s first (and sweetest) outdoor festival of the year. The theme is, “Life is Sweet with Vermont Maple.” The Maple Festival Parade is the biggest in Vermont. The arts take center stage with the Crafts and Specialty Foods Show as well as exhibitions on Main Street and in the Village Frame Shoppe. The Youth Talent Show and the Fiddlers Variety Show fill the evenings while free performances on Main Street Stage fill the days. If you look carefully, you even might find some genuine Vermont maple syrup around. And it all happens in downtown St. Albans. Read more
