Lupine Festival Tour Book now Available


The 17th Annual Fields of Lupine Festival starts June 4th.  The Festival Tour Books are now available to help you plan your time at the Festival.  Pick one up at the Franconia Notch Chamber of Commerce, at local participating businesses, or order one on-line from www.franconianotch.org. The Books are $5.00 each (add $2.00 for shipping).  The Tour Book is packed full of great information and a local map.


The obvious reason to buy the Tour Book is for the calendar of events, 17 pages of events.  The book will help you plan where you want to be.  Unfortunately since you can’t be in two places at once there are times when you will need to make a choice as to where you want to be. We think that this year’s Festival has a little bit of something for everyone!  An Apron exhibit to a Whiskey tasting; Art Shows to Wool-Spinning demonstrations; and so much more.  Our local Inns and Businesses have some great history and stories. Mittersill Alpine Resort was a direct result of Baron von Pantz fleeing the Nazis and Sylvanus D. Morgan not only built the Hilltop Inn but built the famous Summit House on Mt. Washington.  These are just two of the businesses waiting to greet you and to share their stories with you during the Lupine Festival.


The Lupine Festival continues to fill the hills with music as we have 10 different concerts to enjoy.  Do you like Swing, Folk, Rock, Irish, Dixieland, Mezzo-Soprano arias, or maybe you’d like to boogie with the Pine Hill Singers when they sing their tribute to songs of War & Peace?  If you want to try out your dance steps, we have a night of Swing ’n Sweets with the Swing North Big Band and to replenish those calories you burn off dancing, the local Inns are going to provide you with some of their choicest desserts! 


The theme of food continues as the Tour Book has delicious recipes to try from heirloom recipes like the Cucumber & Fiddlehead Salad contributed by The Rocks Estate to the famous Maple Hurricane Sauce from Polly’s Pancake Parlor or a New England favorite, Phil’s Phish Chowdah contributed by the band, Maple Leaf Seven.  There are 16 recipes included in the Festival Tour Book, even Apple Crunch Pupcakes for your canine friends.  Franconia Notch Vacations Rental & Realty wanted to make sure we didn’t forget man’s best friend.  If you have 40 quarts of milk, you could attempt the recipe for Cheese that Sugar Hill Historical Museum found in its archives.  Perhaps you’d like to make Austrian Käsestangerl, a recipe for Cheddar Cheese Sticks from the Mittersill Alpine Resort.  Many of these recipes have an interesting story, history, or even song waiting for you to discover.  And if you want more than recipes, this year’s Lupine Festival has several cooking & tasting events.  Learn Sugar Hill Inn’s breakfast secrets from Chef Steve or how to make homemade ravioli from Chef Val Vortin.  Adair Country Inn & Restaurant has Head Chef Orlo Coots teaching the art of homemade Chocolate Truffles.  The Littleton Coop will also have two cooking classes with local chefs during the Festival as well as sessions on Cheeses. 


Music, History, Food, and Artisans, too!  The annual Art Show will be held June 5th and 6th, art exhibits at Polly’s Pancake Parlor each weekend, and quilt exhibits.  The open air market will host over 30 vendors and artisans.  At the market, you can learn about the arts of working with Fibers, Polish Paper Cutting, Basketry, Wood Turning, and Wood Carving.  The Market will also be host to the Forever Locked Moose exhibit which is a fascinating exhibit and education on our native moose.


Another benefit of the Tour Book are the discounts and specials that you receive when you travel with it during the Festival.  Take your book to Bishops’s Homemade Ice Cream Shoppe and receive 10% off.  If you need a pair of gardening gloves, with your Tour Book, Franconia Hardware has a Wells-Lamont pair for only $1.25.  Discounts on dining, lodging, at the Village Book Store, at Garnet Hill, rent a bike from Franconia Sport Shop, and more. The Tour Book also includes free admission to some events or admission to go to the top of the Indian Head Resort Observation Tower. It includes information on the annual Lupine Photo Contest and lists the great prizes to be awarded . . . you might take the award-winning photo this year.  All great reasons to pick up your Festival Tour Book now and plan a visit during the 17th Annual Fields of Lupine Festival from June 4th to June 20th. For more information, contact the Franconia Notch Chamber of Commerce at 603-823-5661 or visit www.franconianotch.org.
