The New Haven Congregational Church, the New Haven Community Library, the New Haven Events Committee and local volunteers are organizing an event that will focus on celebrating our migrant farmworkers in Addison County while providing opportunities for community connections between the farmworkers and their neighbors.
The festival will begin on the town green with traditional Mexican music, Latin American food from Viva El Sabor for purchase, and crafts and games for the kids. Cartoonist and New Haven resident Kevin Kite will man a cartooning table, so you can stop and ask questions and see how the illustrations are made.
Handwoven baskets from San Jose Monteverde in Oaxaca, Mexico, will be sold, with proceeds going to support that community’s water supply.
