The Champlain Islands Open Farm and Studio Tour is celebrating its 10th year! July 9 & 10, artists and farms will open their doors from 10-4 to give visitors a chance to view the varied talents, crafts, animals, and food that the Islands have to offer. Art demonstrations and sales, farm tours, wine tastings, farmer’s market, music, and more are yours to be discovered. Come explore the Heart of the Islands at this family friendly weekend event!
It is hard to believe that 10 years has passed since our first island farm and studio tour. What began as the vision of a small group of islanders working from a Creative Economies Grant has managed to find a full life here in the islands!
The Open Farm and Studio Tour has been held each year on the second weekend of July from 2007 through 2016 and have been resounding successes. Hundreds of people visited our farms and studios. The response to this tour is always overwhelmingly positive. This open studio tour allows visitors to see where and how artisans work. It offers a glimpse into the creative processes, as demonstrations are strongly encouraged. It also allows visitors to see where their food, fiber and plants come from as well as see different types of animals up close.
