For the seventh year in a row, Grand Point North is proud to offer Grand Point Local, a collection of local restaurants and local food products for sale. Grand Point Local was created to celebrate local food by highlighting some of Vermont’s best purveyors. This year’s participants include: Ben & Jerry’s, Skinny Pancake, Pingala Café, Farmers & Foragers, Caja Madera, Bluebird Barbecue, Shaker Maple Farm, Carte Blanche (Burlington’s new international street food/yakitori cart), Artsriot, Bobber’s Seafood and Miso Hungry.
Grand Point Weird, the art installation on the festival grounds founded by Grace’s sister Charlotte. Both of the Potter Sisters have recently become new mothers, which has changed their perception of the world. This year’s Grand Point Weird theme is “seeing through new eyes”. Much like how a kid might look at a patch of moss and imagine it to be a microscopic forest, the innocence and wonder that come with discovery is ever present on the Grand Point North grounds. Featuring interactive inflatable play-scapes developed by the artists collective Pneuhaus, giant sculptures expand and grow – swelling like a mother’s womb to become toy like. Scale changes and you are immersed in the soft architecture, suddenly small again like a child.
