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

27 years of great beers, great bands and great fans who join us every Labor Day weekend! Make your plans now!  

Book Your Lodging

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 mugs, pints and other 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. Head on up the Great Escape Quad and visit the Sky House Lodge at the top of the mountain for a late summer meal with that amazing view!
