Vermont's Long Trail Festival in Rutland

The Rutland (VT) Herald has a story in its 16 August 2007 issue about the Long Trail Festival in Rutland. It's by Brent Curtis and headlined "Hiking over to Long Trail Festival."

The 3 day festival (Friday-Sunday)
"is the first of its kind but not the last, according to organizers who hope to turn Rutland into a popular pit stop for hikers traveling the nearby Appalachian and Long trails. The free admission event at the Rutland fairgrounds is a cross between an outdoor concert and an outdoor adventures workshop."
The festival site is about 8 miles from the trail -- just a day or so south of the Maine Junction at Killington-- so it's not exactly 'Damascus Trail Days North,' but what a good idea anyway.
