Events planned for Stroll Weekend (June 4-7) have been cancelled or postponed. Please read Executive Director Lissa Harris's full statement here.

The River Garden will be closed to the public until Vermont's Stay Home Stay Safe orders are lifted. At that time the staff will use the latest information from the Department of Health to determine if we should resume our regular open hours of Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. All Brown Bag Lunches and Vendor Expos will be rescheduled when it is safe to do so.

Goat Olympics!

Goat Olympics!

GoatOlympicsOne of the most popular parts of the Slow Living Expo is our annual Goat Olympics, in which young goats from Adams Farm in Wilmington, VT race each other to be the first to their feeding bowls.

For each race, the public is invited to place bets! Just like the horse races, you can bet on your favorite goat to win, place or show. There’s even a trifecta option in which you predict the first, second and third place goats in order.

Winners will receive coupons that are good for merchandise at the Strolling of the Heifers tent — and all bettors will be entered into a grand prize drawing if they turn in their name and email address on their betting slip.

Come watch the fun, and place your bets!
