July 14 marks a Special Occasion in the BigTown universe—a night we are calling
A Celebration of the Independent Spirit
A fine Vermont summer gathering for the love of art, food, spirits, & music!
For this special Joan Hutton Landis Summer Reading Series event we begin the evening with presentations from the extraordinary co-founder of La Garagista Farm & Winery in Barnard, VT, Deirdre Heekin, together with Vermont's most knowledgeable distiller & former professor of anthropology, Duncan Holaday. The evening will go on to include a fabulously prepared meal with food historian and author of Cooking With Fire, Paula Marcoux, and with spirit tastings from St. Johnsbury Distillers (formerly Dunc's Rum).
All will be presented in our Intimate Outdoor Amphitheater with Vermont-made Gypsy Wagons gathering and lending sweet energy to a stunning live performance with Jazz Guitar duo They Might be Gypsies.
Live it up with us July 14th in this ALL OUT BigTown Gallery Super Summer Event!
