Vermont may be called the Green Mountain State, but we Vermonters are very proud of our lake as well! Just look at the name of our chocolate company! Lake Champlain is our state’s western border, it’s rich in recreation, culture and history, and is a huge part of our economy. And the sunsets over the Adirondaks? Breathtaking.
Last year marked the 400th anniversary of our region’s discovery by French explorer Samuel de Champlain. The Quadricentennial Celebration was a huge success and this year’s Lake Champlain Maritime Festival will be better than ever.
A proud first-time sponsor of the event, Lake Champlain Chocolates is even more excited because our friends Grace Potter & The Nocturnals are one of the performers. We’ll be there selling the new, limited edition Grace Under Fire bar and of course, our incredible ice cream!
The four-day event takes place August 12th through 15th on Burlington’s Waterfront. Highlights include a Vintage Boat Show, Shoreline Cruises on the Spirit of Ethan Allen, tons of local food and some great shows each night with MGMT, Gov’t Mule, Dark Star Orchestra and as mentioned above, our friend Grace Potter! Stop by if you’re in Burlington, learn a bit about this amazing lake of ours, and don’t forget to cool off with some Lake Champlain Chocolates ice cream!
