Happy 250th Birthday Woodstock!!

May 29th, 2011 by Deer Brook Inn

The next couple of weeks are jam packed with activities for the body, the soul, and the mind. For example, every Sunday in June is Ice Cream Sunday Days at Billings Farm to commemorate Dairy Month. Lend a hand making the ice cream and then, of course, you can eat it. Each Sunday will have a different flavor. On Wednesday, June 8th, the Market on the Green opens. This weekly Wednesday event offers fresh agricultural products from our local farms. And then on Saturday, the 11th, the Mt Tom Farmers Market opens for the summer.

Don’t miss the annual Alumni Day Parade around the Village Green honoring old and new Woodstock High School Graduates. Interested in painting? On June 13, 14, and 15 join us for Plein Air Workshops. You can call 802-457-3046 for more information. The weekend of June 17 and 18 will hold the first Digital Media Festival for geeks, electronee folks and technocrats. Can you really afford to miss that? And while you are here, you may as well enjoy the 31st Annual Quechee Hot Air Balloon Festival which consists of balloon rides, crafts shows, music and food.

Don’t miss the Brown Bag Concerts every Thursday on the Village Green. June 26 through July 2 is Interplay Jazz 2011. Musicians of all ages and from all over come to attend workshops and classes during the day and then every evening the public can attend concerts and jam sessions on the Green, on the banks of the Ottauquechee River and various other places around town. On July 11th, don’t miss “Vermont Fiddling: Old Time Rules Prevail” to find out the history of fiddling in Vermont and the state of fiddling today!

OH my gosh….. I almost forgot.

On July 10, 2011, come celebrate the 250th anniversary of the founding of the Town of Woodstock. Picnics, horse-drawn wagon rides, live entertainment, and games are the order of the day.

Now, all you need is a place to stay. You’re in luck! Come stay with us!
