Vermont’s resiliency in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene will be celebrated Wednesday at an event featuring food and drink in downtown Rutland.
Roots the Restaurant and Long Trail Brewing will host a “Good Night Irene Pig Roast” at the Wales Street restaurant from 5 to 9 p.m.
The event is free, open to the public and will feature live music, dancing and children’s entertainment. Roots will serve a complimentary pig roast dinner and Long Trail will have their signature Good Night Irene on tap.
A $4 donation is suggested for each draft while donations of $1 for nonalcoholic beverages is appreciated.
All proceeds will go to Restoring Rutland, the Rutland Area Farm and Food Link and Evening Song Farm — an organic farm on Route 103 in Shrewsbury that was destroyed when the Mill River carved a new path through its fields.
A 50/50 raffle will also be held to help raise funds.
The event is being sponsored by Roots, Long Trail, Farrell Distributing, Restoring Rutland, RAFFL, Celebrations and Evening Song Farm.
