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

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

We have bands playing over 4 days and we’ll be serving up several regional wines and over 75 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!
