Each summer all the two-legged and four-legged folks at the Woodstock Farm Sanctuary welcome visitors to the July Jamboree Festival, where you can meet more than 300 rescued farm animals and enjoy award-winning vegan food trucks and booths, live music and kids’ activities. This Sunday, July 3, will be the ninth annual such event, and the first time that the Sanctuary hosts it at its new location in High Falls: the former Camp Epworth, located at 2 Rescue Road, just off Lucas Turnpike.
The July Jamboree is an all-ages event where kids can pet cute fuzzy critters and grownups can learn about the vegan lifestyle. This year’s celebrity guest will be best-selling author Terry Hope Romero, who will give a talk based on her new cookbook, Protein Ninja. Activities go on from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine.
Admission to the July Jamboree Festival costs $20 for adults, $5 for kids aged 12 and under; a group of up to five adults or children traveling in a single vehicle can get in for a “carpool discount” price of $40. Event proceeds directly benefit the Sanctuary’s rescue, shelter and outreach work for farmed animals.
