Fall Fest 2022

4 Days of Beer Tasting and Fun

The festival begins Friday afternoon with two bands and over 80 beers, ciders, seltzers, and a handful of wines. Bring your blankets as there will be live music all weekend! The beer tent will be on the tennis courts near the bottom of the Great Escape Quad so you’ll never be too far from the beer. The party continues Saturday, Sunday and Monday with 8 more bands! For the kids we’ll have the soda station where they can mix their own flavors and create wild concoctions. We’ll have arts and crafts vendors throughout the village and a food court nearby. 

The ever-popular souvenir glassware will be on sale all weekend as well as several other Fall Fest souvenirs (although some will sell out). This is the final weekend of summer operations and the chairlift will be open for sightseeing, hiking and mountain biking. Or you can ride up the Great Escape Quad and visit Sky House at the top of the mountain! Call ahead and reserve your lodging for the weekend now! 

Book your lodging now for the whole weekend!
