A list of Vermont Fall Foliage Events Festivals for the 2015 Season
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!
The first is the Burke Mountain Fall Foliage Festival for Saturday, September 26th, 2015. 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.

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.

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!
