BURLINGTON, Vt.- A brand new festival supports local farmers, food makers and chefs. The What You See Is What You get Festival, or WYSIWYG, is brand new and is August 23-24 and will celebrate the importance of eating locally.

Music, entertainers and local food will be behind Burlington College, on the lakeside of campus, to celebrate the efforts of those involved with local food production. The festival’s mission is to show Vermont’s appreciation for all the local farmers and food makers’ and thank them for their hard work.

The festival will also have demos with Vermont brewers, more than 15 taps, live music and art. The entire lineup can be viewed on WYSIWYG's website. This festival is unique in that the participating farmers teamed up with local restaurants or chefs and created a menu for the two day event.

If you'd like a little more privacy, the "Seated Eaters Society" serves four seperate meals created by a farmer and chef and will be in a more private area near the lake.

WYSIWYG begins August 23 at 11am and ends August 24 at 11pm. Tickets are $45 for a day pass and you can save a little with a two day pass. Children 12 and under are free.
