WYSIWYG is a movement and a festival of food and farming and music and art—celebrating the life that we want to live and the people that make this possible. Our mission is to cultivate the continued best practices of the food providers and individuals contributing to the healthy existence and unadulterated future of our living environment.

 

We believe that respect, integrity, and humor are essential ingredients in life and in crafting the infrastructure that our food system and communities need to survive and endeavor to shine the light on the entirety of the food making process and the practices, joys, and challenges that come at every step of the way.

 

Take in two jam packed days of our incredible line up of nationally touring and home-grown music and a slew of enlightened and witty entertainers and educators talking about what they know and do best. Wander about and check out the eye-catching, larger than life art that will dot the land. Come partake, see, absorb, energize, eat too much, loll about, dance, do your thing….

 

Bring family and friends and one and all to enjoy our perfect lake-side setting and dine on delicious meals created by some of Vermont’s finest Chefs featuring a crop of outstanding Farmers and farms from across the state.
