Get Ready for the main event of summer - Schweitzer's Fall Fest!

Fall Fest is 25 years old and it’s time to move out - out of the village that is!

With so many great beers, great bands and great fans who join us over Labor Day weekend, we’re shifting our set-up to maximize the experience!

This year, you’ll find all the great beers located on the tennis courts above the new stage location on Musical Chairs. Kids activities will be found on the village lawn as well as a selection of vendors offering local arts & crafts and delectable eats!

We have bands playing over 4 days and we’ll be serving up several regional wines and over 100 regional micro-brews and ciders! For the kids we’ll have the soda tent where they can mix their own flavors and create wild concoctions. The ever-popular souvenir mugs, glasses and steins will be on sale all weekend as well as several other Fall Fest souvenirs. 

This is the final weekend of summer operations and the chairlift will be open for sightseeing, hiking and mountain biking. Or just ride up the Great Escape Quad and visit Sky House at the top of the mountain! Reserve your lodging for the weekend now!
