Vermont Foliage Festivals -2
Newfane Heritage Festival
Saturday and Sunday, October 8th and 9th, 2016
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 7, 8, 9, 2016 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 16, 18 , 2016 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!
Tunbridge World's Fair
Tunbridge Fair Grounds
September 15-18, 2016
The Tunbridge World’s Fair has run continuously since 1867 except in 1918, due to the great flu epidemic, and during World War II.
This year: Celebrating the tradition of Harness racing since Day 1 on the fairgrounds, and why the fairgrounds are where they are with the 1/2 mile track on the flat field, all for the excitement of horse racing – extremely popular for well over a hundred and fifty years and the advent of the automobile.
Rosaire’s Pig Races are back! Walk-around clowns: Ditsy the Living Doll &TBA
Antique Tractor Pull is on Sunday starting at 10AM
Annual Stowe Oktoberfest October 1st-2nd 2016
The Town of Stowe’s event field will be transformed into a Bavarian village, under a traditional tent this year for this annual celebration of the harvest and fall foliage. From Oompah bands to authentic Bavarian foods and freshly brewed Vermont beers to traditional sing-a-longs and dancing, even a silent auction… there’s something for every “villager”… young and old. It’s a weekend full of music, dancing, and of course great beer. Oktoberfest is a great time for a good cause.
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 24, 2016
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? )
AUTUMN ON THE GREEN
Sunday, October 2ns, 2016
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 2015. 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!
