AS ALWAYS DIZZY’s DOZEN will be in the orchard every weekend.  We are still finalizing a few other possibilities for some of the weekends so check back in a few weeks and see what else might be going on…

We made the VERY DIFFICULT decision to discontinue hosting the Fall Festival on a single weekend as it has become too large for our staff and our land to accommodate as a safe environment for our customers to enjoy.  We have nothing but gratitude and appreciation for anyone who has ever taken part: customers, vendors, performers, sponsors, volunteers, and staff…without you this tradition would never have sustained the 20 years we organized the event.

If your business would like to advertise or sponsor one of the weekends please call 879-5226 or e-mail vtapple@upickvermont.com
