GRAFTON -- The Grafton Inn is hosting the first Grafton Food Festival, a celebration of local food and farms in Vermont, on June 22 and 23, in Grafton Village. The event is presented by Northeast FLAVOR, an award-winning food and wine magazine focused on New England culinary pursuits.

Celebrate Vermont’s "taste of place" and sample local food from more than 20 local food providers including Grafton Village Cheese, Side Hill Farm, Vermont Creamery, Blake Hill Preserves, Wright Orchard Sugarworks, Vermont Smoke and Cure and more. Additional food vendors, a bar and local farms will be set-up for purchased items, as well.

Guests will have the chance to enjoy cooking demonstrations each day featuring nationally recognized chefs including Susan Tuveson and Jean Kerr of Northeast FLAVOR, Jason Tostrup of the Inn at Weathersfield, Martin Schuelke of the Grafton Inn and more. One lucky attendee at each of the five cooking demonstrations will win the prepared food and sit at a special Chef’s Table at the event to enjoy it.
