Vermont’s Chew Chew Festival has it’s “Last Supper”
The Green Mountain Chew Chew Food and Music Festival is celebrating its 24th and final year this weekend, June 26, 27 and 28 at Burlington’s Waterfront park. The festival has brought together more than 400 food vendors from the area over the years and has become a ‘summer must’ for locals and tourists alike. The decision to end the fest stems from increased production costs and a devastating $20,000 loss after it rained two of three days last year says Rick Norcross of Burlington, the event’s founder and coordinator.
Come partake in the last blast for this great meeting of Vermont restaurants, musicians and eaters. Admission is $2 for adults, $1 for children 12 and under (first 2000 child tickets are free!) and tokens are 9 for $5. Most food items are 3 tokens, with some being 4 or 2. The event is held from 11-9 on Friday and Saturday and from 12-6 on Sunday. Check out participating vendors here and scope out the music here. You may need to make a full weekend of it!!
