It’s time for Schweitzer’s 26th Annual Fall Fest!

Four days of craft beer and free live music

With four days to try over 80 regional craft beers and ciders at Schweitzer’s 26th Annual Fall Fest, the resort is hoping to make the slow slide out of summer and into September savorable.

Fall Fest kicks off on Friday, August 31 with live music from 4pm – 8pm featuring Dimestore Prophets and headliner Dub Lounge International. “Friday evening really lends itself to our local friends & beer fans,” says Marketing Manager, Dig Chrismer. “Pre-ordered glassware will be ready for pick up so you can get up here after work and start enjoying samples from the full collection of beers we have on hand for the weekend.”

Fall Fest will continue on Saturday & Sunday, September 1 & 2 from 12pm - 7pm and on Monday, September 3, from 11am - 4pm. Free live music will take place on the improved amphitheater on Schweitzer’s Musical Chairs run and the ever-popular souvenir mugs, glasses and steins are available for pre-purchase online and onsite during the weekend as supplies last.  

Schweitzer’s village activities will be in full swing all weekend long too with the climbing wall, trampoline jumper and other kid friendly attractions all in one place on the village green. Other artisan and culinary vendor options will be located around the clock tower with Schweitzer’s Sky House offering dining options during regular lift operation hours, 11am – 5pm.

Labor Day weekend will be the last full weekend of summer operations on the mountain with closing day being September 3, 2018. “Fall Fest is a Labor Day Weekend must do,” adds Chrismer. “Taking in the amazing views of Lake Pend Oreille as the sun sets on summer is just a wonderful way to wrap up the season.”
