As much as Vermonters value certain aspects of the cold-weather months — snow sports, bonfires, hot toddies! — winter can become drab. What better way to beat the blahs than with a spirited celebration of roots and contemporary folk music? Presented by the Summit School of Traditional Music and Culture, the annual Spice on Snow Winter Music Festival features four days of tunes, ranging from honky-tonk to Cajun to swing, as well as dances, workshops and jam sessions on stages throughout Montpelier. Trad fans should be sure to catch acoustic trio Molsky’s Mountain Drifters (pictured), led by Grammy Award-nominated fiddler Bruce Molsky, in a Saturday evening concert with Young Tradition Vermont’s Youth Commission Ensemble.

Price: $85-100 for festival pass; prices vary for individual events.
