9th Annual MudFest

MudFest Information

As sure as April showers bring May flowers, spring also signals Earth Day and Mud Season. We will be celebrating in muddy fashion with ECHO's 9th annual Earth Weeks’ MudFest!

MudFest begins Saturday April 12 and continues for sixteen fun-filled days ending on Sunday, April 27.

ECHO will be abuzz with muddy activities and games every day. Get your fingers dirty, create roads, and move mud in our popular mud table. Go out on ECHO's top deck and try your hand at the all time favorite activity, the MUD FLING everyday at 2:30!

Muddy Music Festival
From Saturday April 19 through Tuesday, April 22 Earth Day we will present a festival of music featuring two performances each day at noon and 1 p.m. Enjoy some knee-slapping and fun music with acclaimed musicians from Vermont as well as from Boston, all produced by family-friendly Re-Bop Records.

12:00 The Van Burens from Boston
1:00 Senayit, with Senayit Tomlinson & Pam McCann

And, if you're hungry, Sugarsnap will be serving up some surprising goodies in the ECHO cafe during Mudfest. BUGS! There will, of course, be the usual delicious food, but every day guests can be adventurous and sample edible bugs and buy specials with bugs in them (or on the side). We are not kidding!

Get out of the house, come to ECHO to play in the mud, throw some mud, listen to some great music and learn about the importance of taking care of our planet during ECHO's EarthWeeks' MudFest!

Sponsors include Northfield Savings Bank, WCVT Classcal Vermont Radio, WDEV Radio and WPTZ News Channel 5.
