Gilfeather Turnip Day Oct 22nd

The Wardsboro Public Library invites you to Gilfeather Turnip Day!

Join us Saturday, October 22nd 10 AM to 1 PM at the library to celebrate Vermont’s state vegetable, the Gilfeather Turnip, first cultivated right here in Wardsboro. This year’s Gilfeather event will look different than that of previous years. We will host a variety of activities and games for all ages (look out for the vegetable catapult!), our famously well-stocked book sale (we’re still taking donations!), a bake sale (turnip and non-turnip items!), and, of course, the famous turnip soup.

We look forward to seeing all of you there and hope to grow this event in the coming years. Interested in volunteering for GIlfeather Turnip Day or other library events? Contact us at (802) 896-6988 or
