Location
Hulbert Outdoor Center
Fairlee ,VT

Remember the Dog Team Tavern near Williamstown and its fabulous exotica? Who was Balto? Lord Baltimore’s cat, or the dog that raced serum to Nome? What about Martin Frobisher? Shanawdithit? Joey Smallwood? What northern wonders do you have in your attic, in the den, on the wall? Come share your northern treasures and hand-me-downs—those thingies you’ve never been able to identify or figure out! Share your stories and tales from your forebears’ memory-chests, your old arrowheads and Indian pots, your old photographs and paintings from the North. We’ll try to identify them, give them dates and provenances (but not authentication or evaluation!).

We’ll have some of our own northern curiosities on display, along with artwork, books, crafts, (all northern, of course) and a chance to win in our Raffle!

The Center for Circumpolar Studies will help answer your questions with our panel of Arctic & Subarctic experts, including:

Archdeacon Bob Bryan of Bert and I fame and founder of the Quebec-Labrador Foundation;

Steven Young, Arctic paleoecologist and founder of Wolcott’s Center for Northern Studies;

Stephen Loring, anthropologist, Arctic and New England buff, and Smithsonian expert;

Rob Mullen, northern painter, founder of Wilderness River Expedition Art Fellowship;

Wilfred E. Richard, geographer and photographer, SI Arctic Studies Center Research Collaborator;

William W. Fitzhugh, anthropologist and founder of Smithsonian Arctic Studies Center.

Includes Refreshments & Showing of “People of a Feather“. We’ll also have displays of art (including a selection from Rob Mullen and WREAF artists), photographs (including prints from renowned photographer Jane English), traditional northern crafts, books (including book signing by Sas Carey), and lots of chances to Win in our Raffle!.

Advance Registration Required: $20/person, $35/family, $15/students & seniors.
