We're delighted to have you! BTV: The Burlington International Airport Quarterly is a bilingual magazine — translated into French for our Québécois visitors — that highlights Vermont's recreational, cultural and dining scenes according to the season.

Summer in Vermont is a nonstop party. Locals wait all year for the sun to shine and the temps to rise, and when they do, it's officially festival season. Burlington's outdoor celebrations revolve around food, brews, music and more, but in this issue, we turn our attention to the deep roots of the state's quintessential summer fairs — the earliest of which dates back to 1834. Over time, their agricultural focus has expanded to include rock concerts, rides and all manner of fried food — but you can still pet the 4-H animals.

Or simply head to the fields for more where that came from. We've rounded up some farm-fresh summer fun close to Burlington — from growers' markets to farm tours to barn-based ballet.

Of course, no visit to Vermont's largest city would be complete without diving into shimmering Lake Champlain. Or perhaps doing a downward dog on the Church Street Marketplace is more your style? Read on for our varied itinerary of what to do, see and sample.

If you're just passing through Vermont, we hope you'll be convinced to return for a longer stay. Use this magazine, too, as a guide to the airport and on-the-ground transportation options.

While you're waiting for takeoff, the Burlington International Airport aims to make your stay a pleasant one. Please have a look around and enjoy its amenities and services, including a yoga space, breastfeeding rooms, charging stations, free Wi-Fi and local art. Locavore crêperie the Skinny Pancake has café locations before and after security to keep you happily fed whether you're coming or going.

We thank you for flying BTV and hope you'll come back to see us soon. Let the beautiful city of Burlington and state of Vermont amaze you.

Nous sommes ravis de vous accueillir! BTV : Le bulletin trimestriel de l'Aéroport international de Burlington est un magazine bilingue, traduit en français pour nos amis québécois, qui met en valeur les attraits récréatifs, culturels et culinaires du Vermont, selon la saison.

L'été au Vermont est une grande fête. Les gens du coin attendent toute l'année que le soleil revienne et que la température remonte, et quand c'est enfin le cas, place aux festivals! Les célébrations en plein air à Burlington tournent autour de la bouffe, de la bière et de la musique, entre autres, mais dans ce numéro, nous nous penchons sur les racines profondes des célèbres foires estivales de l'État — dont la plus ancienne remonte à 1834. Au fil du temps, la vocation agricole de ces événements a évolué pour inclure concerts de rock, manèges et toutes sortes de fritures — mais les animaux des 4-H n'ont pas disparu pour autant.

Si la campagne vous attire, nous avons sélectionné pour vous une foule d'activités champêtres amusantes près de Burlington — marchés de producteurs agricoles, visites de fermes et même un spectacle de ballet dans des granges.

Bien sûr, nul ne saurait visiter la plus grande ville du Vermont sans plonger dans les eaux étincelantes du lac Champlain. Ou peut-être l'idée de pratiquer la posture du chien tête en bas au marché de la rue Church vous semble-t-elle plus intéressante? Quoi qu'il en soit, vous trouverez dans ce numéro un itinéraire varié des choses à faire, à voir et à goûter.

Si vous ne faites que passer au Vermont, nous espérons que vous voudrez revenir pour un plus long séjour. Utilisez également ce magazine pour vous orienter dans l'aéroport et guider vos choix de transport terrestre.

L'Aéroport international de Burlington tient à rendre votre attente aussi agréable que possible. N'hésitez pas à faire le tour des installations et à profiter des nombreux services : studio de yoga, salles d'allaitement, bornes de recharge, Wi-Fi gratuit et art local. La crêperie locavore Skinny Pancake est présente avant et après la sécurité pour que vous puissiez vous restaurer à l'arrivée comme au départ.

Nous vous remercions d'avoir choisi BTV et espérons vous revoir bientôt. La ville de Burlington et l'État du Vermont sauront vous surprendre par leurs splendeurs.

The original print version of this article was headlined "Bienvenue à Burlington — et au Vermont"

    We want to learn more about you, the cannabis consumer: when, why and how often you consume; with whom you’re inclined to indulge; how much you pay to partake; and what you love doing when you’re high. We’d also like to know where you get it and what you know — or don’t know — about the stuff you’re using and where and how it’s grown.

    A Ferris wheel towers over the Champlain Valley Exposition, its steel spokes illuminated by gyrating patterns of multicolored neon lights. Aromas of fried dough, cotton candy, beer and straw bales intermingle in the languid summer air. Sunburned teens in tank tops and jean cutoffs snap selfies along the midway while one of their friends in a baseball cap hurls sidearm pitches at a dunk tank, trying to douse a heckling clown.

  • Rock On: Vermont Folk Rockers Are Sitting Pretty

    In the showroom attached to Jim Geier's Starksboro woodshop is one of the first rocking chairs he ever made. It was built with construction materials salvaged from his job renovating houses, and its dark wood, earthy rope and solid silhouette betray its 1970s origins. But from these humble beginnings, Geier has refined his craft to build a formidable fine furniture business: Vermont Folk Rocker.
