The Ben and Jerry’s headquarters is located just 20 minutes down the road from Stowe. Beat the late winter blues with the Waterbury-based factory’s Winter Festival every March. Play fun games, check out snow sculptures, listen to great music, sample Cabot cheeses, and drink Green Mountain coffee. Take a free factory tour and try winter flavors like Vermont Snowball and Minter Wonderland created especially for the event. Admission is free, though a non-perishable food item for the Waterbury food shelf is requested. Can’t make it to the festival?
