Elmore State Park to Host Benefit Music Festival Sunday, Sept 25

Elmore State Park is known as a fun and popular park. With swimming, hiking, a fire tower to climb, horseshoes, a park interpreter (who runs great programs and events), a newly renovated beachhouse, camping, and more, Elmore is not a park lacking in things to do. Well add one more thing to the list - a music festival on Sunday, September 25, 2011 from 12:00 PM - 6:30 PM!

The staff at Elmore usually goes above and beyond the call of duty, and is continuing to do so by generously hosting a benefit music festival. Half the proceeds will go to the Vermont Food Bank and the other half will go to help the Lamoille County Conservation District’s work to protect and restore the water quality of Lake Elmore and the surrounding Lamoille River Watershed. Musical performances will be given by Vorzca, Eames Brothers Band, 7Lbs of Pork, and John Gailmor. The cost is $20.00, but kids under 12 are free! To add to the fun, the first 200 people get a free concert tee shirt, so make sure to get there early!

Elmore State Park's campground has 45 tent/trailer sites and 15 lean-tos. Two restrooms are available in the campground with hot showers ($). A sanitary dump station is available, but no hookups. There is convenient access to several hiking trails to Elmore Mountain and its fire tower. The day use area includes a large sandy beach, historic CCC bathhouse with a concession stand and cafe, restrooms and a rental pavilion, a picnic shelter, numerous tables and grills, pet-friendly picnic area and row boat, canoe and kayak rentals. Give the park a call for more information or to make a reservation, 802-888-2982.
