- Cheese board at Mad River Taste Place
Food-hopping in the Mad River Valley, a perennial delight, will blossom in coming days at Mad River Taste Week. From tastings to tours to demos, the weeklong event will showcase brewing, beekeeping, cider making, cheese-and-beer pairings, hydroponic farming and more. Festivities begin Saturday, August 3, at 5 p.m. with a pig roast on the Mad River Green and wind down a week later with the Vermont Cheesemakers Dinner at the Inn at Round Barn Farm in Waitsfield.
