Vermont River Conservancy wants to celebrate rivers with YOU! Join VRC for our second annual River Gala event at Knoll Farm in Waitsfield, VT. This year's gala is on Saturday, August 25th, 5:00-8:00pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
*important event detail update* There are 20 parking spaces next to the Knoll Farm barn for those who need to park closer, all others will be directed to park in a field and shown a short and lovely walking path that will lead you back to the barn/event site.
Get ready to jump into your fancy duds and celebrate all that Vermont rivers offer at the Vermont River Conservancy's second annual River Gala! The event venue is the beautiful Knoll Farm in Waitsfield, VT. The purpose is to gather with friends of VT rivers and to enjoy local foods and beverages while celebrating the clear flowing waters of Vermont. Indulge in the richness of several varieties of Vermont Creamery cheeses and enjoy a stunning assortment of appetizers from Vermont's own Bon Temps Gourmet, all while hearing about and supporting the work that the Vermont River Conservancy does to protect the special lands along our rivers throughout our beautiful state.
