Memorial Day Weekend kicks off many springtime events in the region.
There’s the traditional parade this weekend of course, but you can also sample some area flavor, by attending Billings Farm and Museum’s Cheese and Dairy Celebration or heading to Killington for the Stage Race, an annual cycling event. For a full list of events go to www. thevermontstandard.
Head to the fourth annual Cheese and Dairy Celebration, which takes place Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. You will get to meet Vermont cheesemakers, sample their delicious artisan cheeses, and take part in engaging dairy education programs.
The Killington Stage Race, scheduled for Saturday-Monday, attracts more than 600 competitive cyclists each year.
If art is your thing, across the state, craftspeople and artists are opening their doors to guests for Vermont Open Studio Weekend, May 25-26. Visit area artists’ places of inspiration and check out their pieces. For more information, go to page 1D.
