5:00PM-8:30PM: La Soirée Sucrée, In honor of Chet Briggs
A Sweet Evening at the Barre Heritage Festival
Old Labor Hall, 46 Granite St, Barre
Sponsored by Delicate Decadence
This year, the Sweet Evening is sponsored by Delicate Decadence Cake Boutique in honor of the late Chet Briggs, long time President of the Barre Historical Society for the benefit of the Society and the Barre Heritage Festival.
The evening is divided into three exciting components—all for one low price.
French Dessert Competition
At 5:00 pm, before the doors open to the public, contestants who fancy the quality of their French desserts will have their desserts judged by a panel of professional judges. There are three ways to enter the competition:
- On July 26, bring your dessert to Delicate Decadence (15 Cottage Street, Barre) by 4:00 pm.
- On July 26, bring your dessert to the Old Labor Hall no later than 5:00 pm.
No late entrants will be allowed to enter the competition.
French Dessert Tasting
After the judging, at 5:30 pm, the doors will open to the public. This is your opportunity to sample the contest entries supplemented by more delicious desserts provided by the chefs of Delicate Decadence. Bon appétit!
Music from Michele Choiniere

family in northern Vermont, Michele began performing traditional Franco-American music at an early age
with her father Fabio, an accomplished harmonica player. In 1995, she began writing and composing her own
songs. Among other accolades, Michele received the Governor's Heritage award in 2007, and has appeared in
