DEERFIELD VALLEY- Mount Snow is an enviable scenic location at any given time of year. Pair its 3,556-foot alpine advantage with a three-day epicurean fete; queue up the vibrancy of fall foliage, and it’s no wonder the Vermont Wine and Harvest Festival is a perennial favorite for visitors and locals.
Over 60 diverse winemakers, distillers, brewers, cider makers, specialty food producers, musicians, and local artisans are staged within the festival’s main tents. The event annually welcomes more than 2,500 visitors for a long weekend of tastings, culinary demonstrations, and entertainment that stretches beyond the resort and into nearby towns.
On Friday, the Wine & Soup Stroll kicks off the festivities, featuring live entertainment and the Vermont Soup Tasting Contest in the heart of Wilmington. On Saturday and Sunday, tastings, exhibitors, and entertainment are located at Mount Snow Resort. The Vermont Wine and Harvest Festival has earned designation as a Vermont Chamber of Commerce Top Ten Fall Event and is listed as a US Top 100 Event by the American Bus Association.
Chairlift rides, hiking trails, and nearby fishing and kayaking sites encourage festival goers to partake in Vermont’s outdoors. Lodging packages are available at several locations within walking distance of the festival and free shuttle bus service on the MOOver is available.
