Herbal Fair and Summer Celebration

Posted June 28th, 2015
We’re having a party! Come celebrate the bounty of summer and our beautiful community at our Herbal Fair and Summer Celebration, FridayJuly 17th from 5-8pm. Dance to the swinging music of Lewis Franco and the Brown Eyed Girls, enjoy an herbal cocktail from the cash bar, and snack on delicious food from local vendors. We’ve gathered local crafters for an herbal market, so you can stock up on tinctures and oils, fresh and dry herbs, beauty products, local honey, plant-dyed textiles and so much more! Support your local herbalists and farmers while enjoying the first harvests of the season.
$5 suggested donation for the musicians, plus cash for treats and market finds. This is an outdoor event, so dress for the weather. Vermont Center for Integrative Herbalism, 252 Main Street, Montpelier.

Vendor spaces are still available (and quite reasonably priced!)–if you’d like to vend at the event, please email Lisa at
