Every second Saturday in August, the streets of downtown Woodstock become the venue for the annual Taste of Woodstock celebration. This event brings community members and visitors together for a taste of Woodstock, both in the literal and figurative sense. This year, from 10 am to 6 pm, more than 40 vendors will line Elm Street in the center of the village, offering everything from local food and spirits to artisan goods and entertaining family-friendly activities. Woodstock Area Chamber of Commerce Assistant Director Kathy Avellino shares some details on Taste of Woodstock 2022.


Q: What is Taste of Woodstock? 

A: Taste of Woodstock is a taste of everything the Woodstock area has to offer, including food, spirits, activities, and artisan goods from vendors.


Q: When was Taste of Woodstock started?

A: It was started 12 years ago by the Woodstock Area Chamber of Commerce. The goal was to have a street festival to celebrate the summer and attract folks to the village.


Q: How has Taste of Woodstock changed over the years?

A: More vendors have been added, more kids’ activities have been added, and we have shortened the hours (it used to go until 9 pm so we could end with fire spinners, but that was just too long of a day for the vendors).


Q: When is Taste of Woodstock 2022?

A: August 13 from 10 am to 6 pm.


Q: Who is Taste of Woodstock for? 

A: Everyone!


Q: Does it cost anything to attend? 

A: Taste of Woodstock is a free event.


Q: What kinds of vendors will be there this year? 

A: We will have vendors offering food, spirits, beer, crafts, artisan goods, local services, face painting, coffee, shaved ice, pottery, and more. A few of this year’s vendors include Vermont Farmstead Cheese Company, Pizza Chef of Woodstock, Howland Good Kettle Corn, Ono Woodstock Shaved Ice, Eat More Pie, Wild Hart Distillery, and St. Johnsbury Distillery.


Q: What does the event look like (is there a schedule of events, things to sign up for, etc.)?

A: The event runs from 10 am to 6 pm, and all vendors will be there during that time. On the south end of Elm Street, local musician Jim Yeager will be providing entertainment starting at 10 am. The lineup for music throughout the day includes Jacob Butler (10 am), Bryan Frates (11:15 am), Libby Kirkpatrick (12:30 pm), Myra Flynn and Paul Bofa (1:45 pm), AliT (3 pm), and the Krishna Guthrie Band.


Q: How can people who are interested participate in the event?

A: Those who are interested in participating can be put on our email list for next year (Taste of Woodstock is always the second Saturday in August; August 12 is next year’s date). There is a fee for vendors.
