Stowe, Vermont, is known for its gorgeous views and amazing skiing, but from June 13 through June 22 it'll become a foodie destination as well, as it hosts the Vermont Culinary Classic. The festival is packed with chef-hosted seminars, cheese crawls (think pub crawls without the beer and grease), cooking classics, farm tours, a pancake-eating contest, among other things -- luckily, you have 10 days in which to take it all in. The extravaganza is bookended by two must-attend events: The Bounty Festival on Saturday, June 14, and the 10th annual Stowe Wine & Food Classic, June 20-22. The Bounty Festival runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Stowe Mountain resort (admission is free). The Wine & Food classic is a benefit for Copley Hospital in New Hampshire, with a gala dinner, wine tasting, and silent auctions (ticket prices vary).
