Are you ready to say good riddance to winter? Northeast Kingdom revelers ring in the season of rebirth and renewal with a celebration of the spring equinox inspired by ancient rituals. Greensboro’s Cate Hill Orchard & Sheep Dairy hosts this pre-summer bash, featuring a battle between winter and spring, the burning of an effigy of the sun, and other reimagined ceremonies of yore. Attendees may come in costume and bring noisemakers for a procession of bears and lambs. Russian sourdough pancakes called blini, served with maple syrup and fresh sheep cheese, fill bellies.
