Update from SolarFest's staff as of July 12: This is both difficult and ironic.
The planet has seen unprecedented numbers of catastrophic weather events over the past few weeks. During the past few days, Vermont and surrounding states have experienced terrible impacts of the man-made climate crisis.
In light of these struggles, and with concern for the safety and well being of our neighbors and friends, the Board of SolarFest has decided to postpone the festival planned for this weekend in Brandon.
We will work to return your complete payment and advise about new dates for SolarFest 2023 will be announced as soon as arrangements can be made so that we can continue to educate and work to reduce future suffering from climate change.
