The Blog Tech and his wife were in Boston for the last few days so they missed this festival. My daughter usually never wants to go to these festivals but she joined me so I wouldn't have to go by myself and she had a blast. It was such a fun time.
This is a rather small festival but it is held in a very cute park in the heart of Appalachia and has some good vendors. This guy makes the cutest things out of wood.
I just had to buy an Appalachian cabin for a future grandchild....hint hint!
The attention to detail is wonderful.
And it comes furnished! Right down to the dishes on the table and the pictures on the walls.
It even has an outhouse.
With a roll of toilet paper.
The food was so good. Ramp hot dogs, ramp hashbrowns, fried ramps and a 'killed salad' which is a staple food in this area. This one was, of course, made with ramps. They decorate the tables with ramp bouquets and place a tray of mints on each table to treat ramp breathe. I don't find that ramps have a very strong flavor, just a cross between green onions and garlic.
It's a puppy friendly festival.
We made sure to stock up on ramp pesto and Beurre de Ramp (ramp butter). It was such a fun trip.
