Fermentation Fest is only three weeks away and I’m really pumped! Should I take a class on winemaking? Hands-on cheesemaking? Or kombucha for beginners?
Just as exciting is the Fermentation Fest Farm/Art DTour. With 50 miles of art, music, food, and crisp, colorful countryside, the DTour is what autumn dreams are made of. Better yet, this year it travels a new route. Think quaint villages named Rock Springs, Loganville and Hill Point, or scenic stops such as Ableman’s Gorge and White Mound County Park.
So this event guide was my summer project: This stack of eye-catching design so strategically placed on my bucket of Marquette grapes (what, don’t we all read 20-page, newspaper-style event guides while picking grapes?). It was a great project, made even more fun by working with Cricket Design Works, who did the Fermentation Fest logo and masthead.
Remember my Wisconsin barn tour? Well, here’s the corresponding story. This and other engaging articles are all part of the Fermentation Fest event guide, as well as maps, schedules and, yes, great photography! Check it all out here.
