ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center turns its attention toward the harvest and the Native American story over the course of nine days with HarvestFest, beginning Saturday, Nov. 23, and running through Sunday, Dec.1.
This nine-day festival celebrates the harvest and honors Native American Heritage Month with storytelling events, Indigenous film shorts, and presentations that focus on the heritage crops of “three sisters” food: corn, beans and squash. Sugarsnap will feature a special dish on their menu during this time.
ECHO is also encouraging visitors to bring their favorite family holiday recipe and/or any recipe using beans, corn, and squash . Those who submit a recipe will be included in a contest to win two free day-passes to ECHO.
Bring a non-perishable food item as a donation to the Vermont Foodbank to receive a $2 discount on same-day admission. Limited one discount per person per day.
ECHO is opened every day from 10 am to 5 pm but will be closed Thanksgiving Day. For a complete schedule of HarvestFest events, visit www.echovermont.org.
