Top 10 Events This Week: July 15th-July 21st

Clouds. Sunshine. Rain. Humidity. Just another week in Vermont! Well, I’m actually hoping for a little less rain in the upcoming week, and a little less humidity. They say if you don’t like the weather, to wait five minutes. But every five minutes, I step outside and turn right back around. Sweating? It’s not for me. Then again, summer is short, so I should probably take what I can get.


In this week’s list, you’ll find some music shows, some classes, and some food options. There are options to enjoy from the comfort of home, or out and about with social distance precautions in place. However you choose to spend the next week, I hope you have a great and safe one!

1) Natural Sun Protection

Where: Railyard Apothecary (online event)

When: Wednesday, 6PM-7PM

Does anyone else turn a lovely shade of tomato when they spend more than 5 minutes under the sun? No… just me? Well, whether you burn or tan, the sun can take a toll on your skin. Herbalist Emma Merritt will be teaching another online class this Wednesday to share how you can protect yourself from UV damage, with helpful tips to keep your skin healthy for years to come.

When: Thursday, 6:30PM-8PM

Check out this week’s livestream music show from the Intervale Center featuring Zach Nugent. I’d be surprised if you haven’t heard Zach’s name around these parts. A lifelong Grateful Dead fan, Zach’s brand of soulful, rootsy music has graced many stages in our area. For Event Info >>

4) American Flatbread at the Farm

If you’ve been paying attention to my last couple posts, then this won’t be the first time you’ve seen one of these events on the Top 10 list.

And of course, pair it with an ice cream dessert, and you have yourselves a beautiful evening (yes, good food is always beautiful). Order for take-out, or bring your blanket or chairs to sit out socially distanced while you enjoy your meal. Just bring a mask for ordering and when near others. For Event Info >>
