Newfane Heritage Festival

{You can tell I love the Newfane Heritage Festival!}

One of our favorite events every year is the Newfane Heritage Festival in Newfane, Vermont. This year's event did not disappoint. Though cold, the weekend was pleasantly sunny and held a few wonderful treats.

Marjorie Tudor worked with the Boston Children's Theatre Show Choir, a non-profit entity, to bring the greater Boston area's talented young singers and their show tunes to the Newfane Town Green.

The crowd loved the performance! Marjorie's connections with the Boston Children's Theatre and the Boston Children's Theatre Show Choir continues to thrive. It's so exciting...more news to come on this Christmas season's performances.

It was such a beautiful fall weekend. Columbus Day weekend, the traditional Newfane Heritage Festival weekend, is often the very best time to come "leaf peeping" in New England. The sun shines (well, there was that one year we had snow....but we'll forget about that...) and the jewel tones of the trees radiate. Everyone is in such a festive fall mood!

A scene like this just makes me miss Tasha. Don't you think she'd look so lovely sitting here under the shade of the fiery tree, spinning away? This was the scene where our generous Jenna was spinning and teaching others how to spin.

Dear little Ellie brought her sunshine smile (and penchant for dogs! she just loves dogs, and there are plenty at the Festival)...

Come visit us next year!

  1. I love the pictures, they capture such a sweet life. The road with the trees was breathtaking...have never made it that far're tempting me to choose Vermont for our 30 year wedding anniversary this fall! (smiles). Great job with the blog, I enjoy reading what's going on and seeing the pictures! So glad that I own the out-of-print Heirloom Crafts book!! I purchased it about 3 years ago...lucky me!! Donna
