Sugarsnap Is Here to Help
Sugarsnap is ECHO’s exclusive, all-inclusive caterer. We’re a mission-driven company that is proud to help sustain an important nonprofit institution. For the last 15 years of providing scratch-made meals using ingredients right from our farm and professional event guidance at ECHO, we’ve learned a few things about framing every one of its spaces in the best light.
Events we’ve successfully catered and coordinated include all-day meetings or retreats, cocktail parties, family parties, company holiday parties, weddings and memorials. Take a look at what we whipped up for this dinner and awards show. Or how about that one time we fed 275 hungry employees?

Your Guests Will Always Remember an Event at ECHO
It’s an interactive playground surrounded by eyepopping lake views. Lakeside Pavillion is equipped with the latest audio and visual technology to help you elevate your event experience. You may even be able to pinpoint where you were standing and what conversation you were having; in front of Revision Lakeside Pavilion’s large movie screen; next to a glimmering tank filled with Lake Champlain fish; on the upper deck overlooking Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks.
You’re in good, steady farmer hands. We’re here to walk you through the process, help you check off all your important boxes and make sure your event goes as swimmingly as possible.
We had our wedding at ECHO Center in July, and Sugarsnap was our caterer. Scheduling everything was quite a breeze. As far as our wedding is concerned, everything went great. Many people remarked how this was some of the best food that they had eaten at a wedding. I highly recommend to anyone.
