Celebrate Vermont's Celtic and French-Canadian roots at the 19th annual New World Festival in Randolph, Vermont, Sunday September 4, 2011. In 2007 I attended the 15th event, and a little review is here. This is a really fun festival. You buy a pass, and you basically get the run of attending as many gigs as you please in the town, which is basically shutdown to traffic for the full 12 hours. This year they have 6 stages running. Some of the stages are in local churches, or in the wonderful Chandler music hall. Food is all local, beer and wine from Vermont producers, , children's activities, and work from Vermont artisans. Musician's recordings are sold at a central point in the town. If you want a great weekend getaway across the border, I really recommend this festival.
