Fall Foliage Events and Festivals 2014

2014 Fall Foliage Fairs and Festivals in VT

Hi all you fall fair and festival seekers! The events are starting to become listed and here are a couple of my favorites that now have dates! I'll update this list in the next six months but feel free to add to the list IF the date has just been posted for the event!

The first is the Burke Mountain Fall Foliage Festival for Saturday, September 27th, 2014. A group of us went to for a meetup last autumn and it was great! Unfortunately, the mountain was fogged in and we couldn't take the lift ride. If you see the photo on the link of the poster be sure to stop by the info booth and buy one for a nominal fee. It was one of the reasons I went there to frame this beautiful poster and I left without it. Carol was kind enough to make her dear hubby go out of their way to save it for me for when we got together again at mmvt's Killington meetup. I now have it framed and it is gorgeous! The festival is wonderful with events and booths and food and a great lunch in the church. I'm sure Carol can add more as this is her territory!!!

Burke Foliage Festival

The second fair now listed is the Peru Fair on the same day!!!! This has got to be my favorite fall foliage festival in Vermont! I went for the first time last autumn and the town of Peru is adorable. They have hundreds of tents set up and live entertainment and soooooo many amazing food booths! The crafts are excellent. You can take a shuttle bus from the mountain resort right to the festival and there is an entrance fee as well. A great time was had by all with so many happy folks milling about! This is where I will be on September 27, 2014!

Peru Fair

Here is another fair that has the September dates listed already and one I go to every year! This is the Chester Fall Festival on the Green, home of our own forum member bhavjen, who owns a cabin in Chester. I am fortunate to be so close to Chester and meet up with him and his family each year at this great festival. If you haven't been to the quaint town of Chester, this is a great destination, not only to attend the fair but to see all that Chester has to offer. The surrounding back roads in the area are beautiful. Last year, the Chester and Peru Fairs were on the same weekend so we got to hit both on a gorgeous fall day. This year, the Chester Fair is the weekend before the Peru Fair. The crafts are very affordable and there are so many delicious food booths. If you go, be sure to eat at and support the local fireman's booth which is deeeeelicious! There is a great antique and collectibles spread on the lawn in front of the church with some great finds every year. The old graveyard is quite interesting as well. On the way up from 91, stop at the Vermont Country Store on route 103 in Rockingham for a perfect fall day's excursion!

Saturday and Sunday, September 20th and 21st, 2014
Chester Fall Festival on the Green

Newfane Heritage Festival
Saturday and Sunday, October 11th and 12th, 2014

I have yet to get here! It is always on Columbus Day Weekend and I'm usually done with my Vermont foliage excursion by then. Last year it was on the day I was leaving Vermont so I missed it once again. It looks like a great event and hopefully I'll get there someday! Newfane has an outstanding town green with beautiful churches and the foliage is probably very nice around Columbus Day Weekend in this area.

Weston Craft Show
October 10, 11, 12, 2014
Columbus Day Weekend

I've been to this craft show. It is very high end but beautiful crafts. Just have some extra bucks handy for this show! The Weston town green is divine. The back roads around Weston are gorgeous and the whole Okemo area is wonderful.

Vermont Life Wine and Harvest Festival
September 19, 20 and 21st, 2014
Mt. Snow, West Dover and various locations in the area

This has been on my list of "VT Festival To Dos" and I have yet to get there! It is not far from where I live but the past two years I've either been in Peru or Chester for their early autumn festivals. It looks like a lot of fun!

26th Annual Sheep and Wool Festival
Tunbridge Fair Grounds
Tunbridge
Saturday and Sunday, October 4th and 5th, 2014

This event looks wonderful! Tunbridge and the surrounding towns are beautiful so a back road drive including this festival would make for a perfect day trip! The link for the event schedule includes a border collie sheep herding demo, sheep shearing and much more. There is also music. There are so many things going on in Vermont this weekend, I wish I could be in all the places at once! If you go, stop in the town of Strafford. The town is absolutely mesmerizing!

17th Annual Stowe Oktoberfest
Saturday, Oct. 3rd, 11:00am - 8:00pm
Sunday, Oct. 5th, 11:00am - 4:00pm

Grand Parade
Saturday, Oct. 5th, 10:00am
Mountain Rd. & Main St. Stowe

 

This looks to be a wild time. I've never been! So much to do and so little time. But I'll be up there that weekend so it is a possibility!

Bristol Harvest Festival
Saturday, September 27, 2014

10 am to 4 pm, In the park

OY! Why is everything on the same weekend! I've always wanted to go to this but I can't be at 3 craft/harvest fairs in one day! (Or can I? )

Brandon Harvest Fest
October 5, 2014 10:00 am
Central Park

I've never been to this festival but Brandon is a great town for sure! Have eaten there a few times and it's a great town to stroll around in!

AUTUMN ON THE GREEN
Danville
Sunday, October 6, 2014

This is probably one of the best autumn festivals I have been to in beautiful Danville! This is the 11th annual event and last year it was held off the green due to road construction in town. It looks like the same situation for 2014. There are so many wonderful craft tents from local vendors and artisans and the prices are very reasonable. The food booths are AMAZING! There is also great entertainment and lots of fun venues for children as well. Last year, or maybe it was the year before, (I can't remember as I have been so many times ), it was pouring rain, and bm and I didn't stay very long as the mud around the tents was yucky! But, we still had fun and always manage to buy a few items. I hope it returns to the green in the near future, but parking seemed a lot easier at the school. You can't go wrong at this unique craft fair! The roads around Danville are gorgeous and it would make for a great day trip.

One year Al Utzig and I toured the back roads around Danville and since he is not a craft fair kind of guy, he dropped me off and bm met me at the Autumn on the Green so we could satisfy our shopping needs!

I love the NEK Fall Foliage Festival! I have not been to the Walden, Cabot or Plainfield celebrations but have been to Peacham, Groton and Barnet days. All fabulous! Especially the famous chicken pie dinner in Groton! This is a MUST! If you don't make reservations, you will be OUT OF LUCK! The seatings are well organized and the lines move quickly and you get to sit with wonderful locals from the area. The folks we sat with gave us great hints on back roads and hidden gems in the area when I went years ago. I am hoping to convince Carol to have dinner there with me when we stay at our farm in Marshfield! The crafts in the vestry in Barnet are great and I hear the breakfast is wonderful.

I wish I could be in five places at once on this last weekend of September, 2014!!!! Please note that they have not yet updated the dates on the schedule of events as this reflects last year's fair but the schedule I'm sure, remains the same. Doesn't it look like fun??? Hope you can go!

Dummerston Apple Pie Festival - October 13, 2014.
Dummerston Vermont.

For 40+ years, the Dummerston Apple Pie Festival has been held each year on the Sunday of Columbus Day weekend, the peak of colorful autumn foliage in Southern Vermont. A full 1500 apple pies are made by many church members and friends and proudly served with Vermont cheese and hand churned ice cream. A farmer’s breakfast, grilled lunch, tag sale, and craft fair make the festival a whole day event. Folks from all over the Northeast travel by motorcycle and automobile to take part in the festivities.

Another fall festival I have always wanted to go to but alas, it is Columbus Day Weekend and I'll be long gone from my Vermont Foliage trip this year. Unless of course, I drive up for the day. Hmmmmm......

I think I attended this festival many years ago but really not sure if it is the same as the fall festival with all the craft tents. Nonetheless, it looks great! And there is so much to do around the Gorge, Woodstock and all the back roads in the area. Sure is a lot to do on Columbus Day Weekend in Vermont in 2014!

This is a great event! They have the most beautiful fall foliage display in front of the winery. Last year Phil and I stopped by so I could stock up on Cow Tipper Wine (deeeeeeeeelicious) for gifts and for myself of course (still have a bottle chillin' in the frig ) in the POURING rain. Poor Phil had to help me carry my bags of wine and gifts to the car in the those flooding downpours. They have a lot of food items on display in the winery and great wine tasting bar. Do stop by here even if you don't make the festival because you will certainly enjoy the winery itself!

I took the single chair lift during foliage season and it was AMAZING!!!!!! It is the most peaceful, breathtaking journey into foliage heaven I've ever experienced! Traveling by yourself on the single lift surrounded by nature and stillness, except for the hum of the lift ride is mesmerizing to say the least. The views are extraordinary and being at the top... well, you have to be there to feel the exhilaration!!!! Go for it!!!!

This is a great event! They have the most beautiful fall foliage display in front of the winery. Last year Phil and I stopped by so I could stock up on Cow Tipper Wine (deeeeeeeeelicious) for gifts and for myself of course (still have a bottle chillin' in the frig ) in the POURING rain. Poor Phil had to help me carry my bags of wine and gifts to the car in the those flooding downpours. They have a lot of food items on display in the winery and great wine tasting bar. Do stop by here even if you don't make the festival because you will certainly enjoy the winery itself!
