Vermont Wine and Harvest Festival Sept 26 - 28

This event is a good way to meet some friendly Vermonters

The Mount Snow Valley Chamber of Commerce and Vermont Life Magazine are hosting the Vermont Life Wine and Harvest Festival this weekend, September 26 - 28 in the southern Vermont towns of Dover, Wilmington, and Whitingham. The event is aimed at being a showcase for the best of Vermont wines, specialty foods, and artists.

Activities kick off with a Welcome to Vermont Bluegrass Party and BBQ on Friday evening at the Matterhorn Inn in West Dover. On Saturday the main festival runs from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm at juncture of Routes 9 E and 100 S next to the White House Inn in Wilmington, VT. There will also be live music including the Vermont Symphony Orchestra Brass Trio Fanfare and other bands, plus a Vermont Life food writers discussion panel with book signing opportunities. That evening there will be wine pairing dinners at some of the local restaurants (reservation required - most of them are already booked - see the website for details).

Sunday starts with an Indigenous Vermonter Breakfast sponsored by Vermont Smoke and Cure and hosted by the Deerfield Valley Sportsman Club in Whitingham from 8:00 to 11:00 am.

The Mount Snow Valley is popular destination for people visiting Vermont and this weekend will be a great time to see an extra dash of fall foliage to make it event better.

While you are in the area, also look for 25 "Vermonster" outdoor sculptures created by Vermont artists using new, found or recycled Vermont materials displayed around the area.

There is also a local scarecrow competition and a home tour of some of the area's finer country homes on Saturday.
