Food

The festival is proud to offer three food courts throughout the fields.  Enjoy lunches and snacks from one of more than 20  food vendors and take a load off under one of the dining tents, chat it up, share your indulgences, and leave room for sampling food and sundries from local businesses throughout the Quabbin region. Festival food vendors  are committed to culinary creativity and local agriculture, and include community organizations that raise funds through this event. Each food vendor uses at least one, and often many locally grown, raised, or produced products.  Many offer a taste of garlic in one way or another.

Beverages are free of high fructose corn syrup and no bottled water– water is provided free on site! All food vendors use biodegradable utensils and plates which are composted after the festival at Orange’s local Clearview Compost, generating fertile soil rather than filling landfills. Attend a workshop at the handcrafted bread oven in the food court, that produces baked goods for festival volunteers.

Come hungry and enjoy the feast and fellowship!
