Community Celebrations

All work and no play leaves joy out of the equation of forest community membership. VFF hosts several annual and seasonal celebrations to express joy and gratitude for being part of this beautiful, abundant land.

Our annual celebrations include Woodwinds in the Middle Barn and the Annual VFF Landowner Gathering. Together with The Watershed Center, we co-host annual Beltane (May Day) and Winter Solstice celebrations.


A crackling fire, good food, singing, and pageantry accompany the Winter Solstice celebration at the Waterworks property in Bristol each year.
