Hay/Sleigh Rides

01/23/2021 - 12/30/2021 - 12:00 am at

Explore our farm with horse-drawn rides pulled by our Belgian draft horse team, Jack and Max. Our team will literally take you over the stream and through the woods for an old- fashioned ride touring our farm’s 120 acres of fields and forest. Our hay and sleigh rides can accommodate a maximum of 10 people at a time (this includes children and adults).

Sleigh rides on our trails require a base of 2 feet of snow. If we do not have enough snow, we will use the wagon instead of the sleigh. No refunds are issued if we need to switch.

We are booking private 30-minute rides. Every Saturday from 10-4. Tues/Thurs 2-4. Due to COVID, riders must wear masks.

Readings on the Common

Readings on the Common

05/30/2021 - 08/22/2021 - 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm at Walpole Town Common
Washington St

Each Sunday at 4:00 PM, the Walpole Players will be holding their weekly meetings for Readings on the Common.  These readings are not performances, rather simply reading through an assortment of scripts to choose one or more for another outdoor staged reading later in the summer.

The readings inspired by the need to only gather outdoors last summer and early fall led to a staged, costumed, and properly distanced  reading of Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest” on the Common before an audience. This year’s readings will hopefully lead to one or more similar performances this year.  

Anyone and everyone is invited to join us as a participant, as these readings are not meant to have an audience.  This is a great way to discover your inner thespian!  We will meet near the Bandstand on the Walpole Town Common.  Please bring a lawn chair, water bottle, and a mask just in case one is needed. 

Please email or call (603) 756-2535 if you need more information.

Live Action Role Playing

Live Action Role Playing

06/07/2021 - 10/27/2021 - 12:00 am at World Under Wonder
5755 Rt 5

World Under Wonder in Ascutney will present a three part Live Action Role Playing (LARP), a medieval fantasy improvisational theatre game where you dress up as a character and play out a story with others while carrying around foam weapons and cast make believe spells at one another. 6-10:30 pm. on Mondays, there will be our adult program for those 18 and older. 5-8 pm. on Tuesdays, there will be our teen program for those 12-18 years old. On Wednesdays from 5-10:30 pm. there will be our community get together days for all ages. Due to Covid-19, all participants are expected to be have been vaccinated and show proof with card.

At World Under Wonder, our focus is the security and the safety of those involved. Tanu LARP is a roleplay focused LARP with a high emphasis on character building and having the ability to do things you normally might not be able to. Whether you are small but want to be a tank, or you are clumsy but wish to be a rogue… the skill system of Tanu allows players to be whatever they wish they could be. LARP, or Live Action Role Playing, is a great form of escapism and even a cathartic form of therapy. Through victories and defeats within the game world, we learn to cope or deal with the conflicts of our real lives. Players will take a game like Dungeons and Dragons off the table and play it in real time, with costumes, foam weapons, and make believe spells.

Parents/Guardians can also take part in the youth program and act as a side kick to their youth involved. On Mondays, there will be our adult program for those 18 and older. Our last weekly program, our community gathering days. will be for all ages to participate in building and crafting together, hanging out, talking about the games and dueling with foam weapons. Come join the quest and drop in whenever you can, you are not required to be at every session each week. Membership cost is $25 a month for taking part in the weekly events, or $10 per daily event you come to.

Contact World Under Wonder on Facebook, or email us at for more information or to sign up. You can also find our website at We are a very inclusive program, where the only thing excluded, is exclusion. Come be a part of our community and have fun doing it.

Hydropower Coffee Hours Engage the Public in Speaking Up for Rivers

Hydropower Coffee Hours Engage the Public in Speaking Up for Rivers

06/08/2021 - 07/14/2021 - 9:30 am - 10:30 am at

The Connecticut River Conservancy (CRC) is hosting three virtual Hydropower Coffee Hour events to discuss and answer questions about the five Connecticut River hydropower facilities that applied for renewed operating licenses in December. The five facilities include the Turners Falls Dam and Northfield Mountain Pumped Storage in Massachusetts, and the Wilder, Bellows Falls, and Vernon Dams in Vermont and New Hampshire. Once they are issued, the licenses for these facilities will be in place for the next 30-50 years and impact more than 175 miles of the Connecticut River. It’s critical that we all speak up NOW in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to influence these operating licenses. Join CRC at these Hydropower Coffee Hours to learn more:

  • June 8, 9:30am, Migratory Fish
  • July 14, 9:30am, Economics & the Markets

Additional details and links to register can be found at CRC staff and additional experts will be on hand to answer questions and share how the public can get involved in the hydro relicensing process to speak up for rivers. These events are devoted to question & answer. Each event has a unique topic to guide the conversation, but any questions related to the relicensing are welcome.

The Hydropower Coffee Hour events are a follow-up to two informational presentations held by CRC in January that can be viewed online at or on CRC’s YouTube channel. We encourage attendees to view these presentations for additional background about the relicensing and related concerns.
