Mother Earth News Fair

105 Pearl Street
Essex Jct, VT

Mother Earth News, the largest and longest-running publication about self-sufficient lifestyles, premieres its Vermont edition of the Mother Earth News Fair June. 10-11 at the Champlain Valley Exposition 105 Pearl Street in Essex Junction. The Fair runs from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, and from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Sunday.

“Bringing the Fair to the Burlington area makes perfect sense for us, given Mother Earth News’ large subscriber base in the region and the state’s long-time overall passion for sustainability,” says Andrew Perkins, the Fair’s director.  

Attendees can attend more than 150 hands-on workshops that cover organic gardening, food preparation and preservation, natural health, renewable energy, homesteading, small-scale livestock, green building and remodeling, green transportation, and related topics. Local and national experts on sustainable and rural lifestyles will lead the sessions.

In addition, the Fair will host children’s activities, vendor and livestock demonstrations, an alternative energy vehicle display, hundreds of exhibitors, and local and organic food options.

For a reduced price, attendees will be able to pre-order a weekend wristband closer to the event. Wristbands at the gate will cost more. Children 17 and under get in free. A limited number of VIP lanyards are available for purchase as well. VIPs receive perks such as priority seating at workshops and catered meals.
