Locals can tour the world in a weekend without leaving Chittenden County at the 23rd annual Vermont International Festival. Billed as a “celebration of cultures that make up our community,” the fest is a vibrant melting pot of sights, smells, tastes and sounds from across the continents. Revelers can admire handcrafted goods from 40 countries — perhaps picking up a few holiday gifts along the way. There are plenty of opportunities to bask in the beat of world music and dance or expand sartorial sensibilities at an international fashion show, as well as sample global gourmet eats. New on the menu this year are mouthwatering Venezuelan arepas, Indian street food and Tibetan moma. Bon voyage and bon appétit!

Price: $7-20; free for kids under 6.
