EatxNE (Eat by Northeast)
Presented by the Skinny Pancake and Higher Ground, EATxNE (Eat by Northeast) is a FREE 2-day celebration of Vermont food and a fundraiser for local food organizations.
Come hungry, and bring the whole family!
Kid-friendly programming happens all day Friday and Saturday, including nationally-acclaimed kids performer Dan Zanes.
Eat delicious food
…at the peak of our season's harvest from dozens of Vermont's best and most authentic farmers, chefs and food producers.
Drink hard-to-find "nano" brews borne from Vermont's booming beer culture at the Brewhaha on Friday and Saturday nights.
Listen and watch FREE live music all weekend long.
Friday evening will open with some high-energy bluegrass from Cabinet. The electrifying Josh Panda and the Hot Damned ("a true force of nature"–Dan Bolles, 7 Days Music Editor) will get the crowd clapping and stomping for the ultimate local supergroup, the Hug Your Farmer All-Star Band. HYF has sold out Higher Ground several times over, so get ready for a big party! The free music programming is a massive fundraiser, with 100% of donations going to the participating local food non-profits.
Learn at over 30 FREE seminars
…from the best entrepreneurs, chefs, and champions of the local food movement in Vermont. Three different tracks–Grow, Create, and Sell–help you take full advantage of everything our foodshed has to offer. Pick up business savvy from successful restaurateurs and food manufacturers, "make and take" food that will last all winter at one of the pickling and preserving classes, and learn how to eat locally on a budget.
Our goal is to raise over ,000 for the Intervale, Slow Food Vermont, the Vermont Community Garden Network, and ECHO. 100% of your donations go to these organizations.
We look forward to seeing you in September, and remember, come hungry!
