The Barre Heritage Festival starts on July 21st this year and runs through the 25th. On Friday night, starting at 4:30, the Barre Ethnic Heritage organization is going to have an Ethnic Food Tent set up on the Aldrich Library lawn.
I wish I could be there to see what they'll be serving up, but I'm going to a Rush concert at SPAC that day.
SOMEone please go and check it out and report back, I'm SO curious.
Also, there's a strawberry festival start at 6PM at the congregational church (while supplies last). A benefit dinner at the Elks Lodge for Vermont Catholic Schools (6:30).
Saturday morning there's a pancake breakfast on the Aldrich Library lawn (7:30).
The ladies at Simply Delicious and Bag Lady's Cafe are celebrating their one year anniversary during the festival (at their location in Depot Square). Ladder I Grill is also celebrating their one year anniversary at the Firehouse (I've never been, just discovered it was even there last week!).
Saturday night there's a spaghetti dinner on the Aldrich Library lawn.
There's also always an array of various "fair food" vendors up and down the street.
Fry dough, anyone?
