In 1995, a group of like-minded locals with a passion for music and renewable energy gathered at an off-grid site in southern Vermont. Solar-powered by necessity, the party went off without a hitch, and SolarFest was born. Today the eco-friendly fête is the Northeast’s premier sustainable living and arts festival. Blending recreation and renewable energy, the gathering unites big names in music, arts and science. Live entertainment from Bow Thayer, Break of Reality and others complements workshops, crafts, local eats and regional inventors, who display feats of DIY ingenuity at the SolarFest Mini Maker Faire.

Price: $20-50; $75 weekend pass.
