The base area of the mountain will be the backdrop for a variety of vendors including Hemlock Hills Alpaca Farm with a few alpacas to show, a quaint farmer market provided by Shimmering Light Farms, Café Sol, Simply Crepes, The Brown Hound Bistro, and Santillo’s Fried Candy Bars.  Food trucks include:   The Original Mac & Cheese Food Truck, Smoothies Plus and Dar’s Delights Ice Cream. Other food options include Carver’s Kitchen, the Summit Grille and the Morning Star Café (homemade Belgian Waffles) our mid-mountain cafe.  A variety of local wineries, breweries and distilleries will provide tasting opportunities for age appropriate guests.   They will include:  Black Button Distillery will sample their unique Bourbon infused maple syrup, Arbor Hill Winery, Raymor Estates Winery, Casa Larga Winery, Naked Dove Brewery, and Genesee Brew House.   Face painting, arts and crafts, and the Ontario Country Safe Child ID program will be available in the Rocket Lodge.  Local craft vendors will also be on hand.   Families can even enjoy volleyball with a 48” beach ball.  If conditions are just right members from the Rochester Area Flyers Hang Gliding Club may take flight off of Stid Hill.
 
Scottish Highland Games organizer Tim Mullally is thrilled to be back for the second year and has more athletes than last year committed to compete.  As is the tradition of these games, a Scottish Bag Pipe troop from Rochester, will pay tribute to fallen soldiers with bag pipe program from 11am-11:30am.
