The Forest Festival is part of Fairlee’s July 4 weekend celebrations which include a family fair and band concert Sunday evening and the popular Orford-Fairlee Independence Day Parade, BBQ, and fireworks display on Monday.
This site has been created by Friends of Fairlee Forest as a window into our public forest lands and trails. Fairlee boasts over 35 miles of public trails through one of east-central Vermont's largest unfragmented forests. With stunning mountain views, rushing streams, and a network of over 80 acres of pristine wetlands, the forests are a valuable recreational resource as well as ideal habitat for northeastern wildlife. Many of the continent's songbird species migrate thousands of miles each year to nest in these forests. This is a treasure to cherish, preserve, and enjoy.
