What to do locally….This weekend

Other than coming to the craft show (see post below) on Saturday in Charlotte, here are some other ideas for the Burlington, VT area from my picks in the Seven Days Calendar…

Music:

Motel Brothers (alt-country), Saturday, November 20, 10PMat The Reservoir Restaurant & Tap Room in Waterbury.  I’ve heard them play & they are very good!  Have a sweet bluegrass/old folksy sound to them.

Fairs/Festivals:

Annual Craft Fair – Handmade curios catch the eyes of passersby. Saturday, November 20, 9AM–4PM at St. Francis Xavier School in Winooski. Free.

Holiday Bazaar – Homemade lunches of baked beans, chili and cornbread augment a market of handcrafted items and sweet treats. Saturday, November 20, 9AM–4PM at Winooski United Methodist Church in Winooski. Free.

Queen City Craft Bazaar: Holiday Craft Show – Recycled skateboard jewelry and creative duds are among the items offered by local crafters, designers and artists at this indie fair. Saturday, November 20, 10AM–5PM at Union Station in Burlington. Free.     I know someone who is showing/selling in this- go if you can!

‘Metals/Materials/Culture’Fleming Museum, UVM, Burlington. Students in UVM’s seminar in museum anthropology curated this exhibit composed of tools, weapons, artwork and currency from different cultures and crafted in brass, silver and copper.

Misc:

This just makes me laugh: Harry Potter Lego Building Potterheads imagine the layout of the wizarding world in cubic constructions.Friday, November 19, 3–4:30PM at Brownell Library in Essex Junction. Free.

This actually sounds interesting: Winter Tree Identification – Foliage, branching patterns, buds and bark set woody plants apart in this exploration led by Forest Donaj-Keys and Mark Krawczyk. Saturday, November 20 and Sunday, November 21, 10:30AM–12:30PM at Burlington City Hall Park in Burlington. $5 suggested donation.

*Don’t forget there are also Winter Farmer’s Markets weekly in Burlington, Williston & Waitsfield!*
