Strolling of the Heifers Weekend
June 6, 2014 - June 8, 2014
A weekend of fun and education for the whole family, built around the world-famous, agriculturally-themed Strolling of the Heifers Parade, which takes place Saturday, June 7 at 10 a.m. sharp on Brattleboro’s historic Main Street.
The parade kicks off with scores of lovable heifer calves, groomed and decorated, led by future farmers. The heifers are followed by many other farm animals, bands, tractors, floats, clowns and surprises. When it’s over, follow the crowd to the all-day, 11-acre Slow Living Expo for food, music, dance, demonstrations, exhibits and fun, all related to our mission of sustaining family farms by connecting people with healthy local food.
And that’s not all: Stroll Weekend starts Friday night, June 6 with our Gallery Walk Street Festival featuring a culinary competition (the great Bread Pudding Cookoff!), Farm Art exhibits, plus food, music and dancing in the street; and continues Sunday, June 8 with our Farmers Breakfast, the cycling Tour de Heifer and a Farm Tour; plus many other related events during the weekend.
Preceding the weekend is the fourth annual Slow Living Summit, June 4-6 in downtown Brattleboro — a conference gathering concerned citizens for explorations of how to build healthier, happier, and more resilient, connected, mindful, sharing, and vibrant communities.
