A fundraising event for Vermont Fresh Network

About this event:

Windsor, VT

Join Vermont Fresh Network and experience a culinary delight at the Artisans Park with an afternoon picnic! Chef Jenny Williams of Artisan Eats is preparing an exquisite picnic with local products featured in each menu item. Located in the Artisan Park, grab a beer at Harpoon Brewery or a cocktail at SILO Distillery before or after your picnic in the Path of Life Garden. Meander through the maze, labyrinth, and eighteen works of art along the Connecticut River. Garden admission included in ticket price. Picnickers will be set with all the fixings, including a special Vermont Fresh Network picnic blanket. Catch outdoor music at SILO Distillery from 2:00-4:00. 

This is a rain or shine event!

Thank you for your support in our 25th year

This event and unique experience was designed as a fundraiser for the Vermont Fresh Network, a member-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit that relies on charitable donations from folks who care about the local food system, our state's farmers & restaurants, and our rural economy.

Other things to know:
  • A picnic blanket is provided with your registration, but feel free to bring anything else to make your picnic comfortable.
  • The pick-up is located at Artisan Eats in the Artisan Park in Windsor.
  • There is ample (free) parking.
  • From 12:00 to 2:00 it's a bit quieter and less busy in the park. From 2:00 to 4:00 it's livelier and SILO Distillery offers outdoor music.
  • Sorry, for simplicity-sake, no substitutions are available in the menu.
  • This is a rain or shine event. If it's raining or thunderstorming, please pick up your food and decide the best place to enjoy it. Apologies, we are not able to accommodate a rain date.
  • Please feel free to stay all afternoon and enjoy the many things to do at Artisan Park - the sculpture garden, outdoor games, river rentals, cocktails, beer, and more!

Attend them all!

This event is part of a small series of picnics throughout the state with Vermont Fresh Network members. Learn about the other picnics in August.

Thank you

We are so excited to share this farm-to-blanket experience with you! We greatly appreciate your support of both the Vermont Fresh Network and our member, Artisan Eats.

See you on August 29th!
