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.

Underhill Harvest is another event I have always wanted to attend! I have heard nothing but rave reviews about all the happenings at the Underhill Harvest Market! I wish I could be in five places at once on this last weekend of September, 2015!!!! 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 11th, 2016.
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.

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 2015!

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!
