Fall In VT

Fall Festivals- Local Flavor of VT

During one of the most beautiful times of the year in Vermont, the entire State takes full advantage of perfect weather and fantastic sights by hosting annual Foliage and Fall Festivals. From the northern most part of the State to the southern most part, these festivals can be found in most towns both large and small. What a beautiful way to experience all the charm of Vermont's historic towns and villages.

Starting in September the beauty of Vermont comes alive in Chester, as "The Green" fills up with people for the yearly celebration of fall. Chester has been chosen as "one of the most beautiful Villages in New England" and lives up to this compliment . For the 40th year, Chester welcomes visitors both locally and from afar to a well-attended event that takes over the entire center of town. People come year after year to see the sights and say hi to neighbors and friends. For 2 days you will find local artisans, food and fun; even the local kids get in on the activity as the schools come together to feed the masses with their unique ideas for snacking on the go!

The festivals begin to wind down in late October with a variety of events throughout the State. Join us in Vermont for this most beautiful time of year as we enjoy the still warm weather while looking forward to that inevitable long snowy winter.

Bring a jacket and your curiosity; you are in for a treat! Don't forget the camera....

Vermont's Foliage Season is also Apple Season!

As you wander the scenic roads of Vermont, you will inevitably come across many places selling Vermont apples. With everything from the traditional McIntosh to the newer Pink Lady, apples are a fall staple in Vermont.

You will see small roadside stands, farmer's markets and larger fruit stands dotting the roads. Any one of them will have your favorite apple on hand. But if you're feeling a bit more adventurous, find any local orchard in the State and take the afternoon to pick your own. There are over 40 orchards in Vermont, producing over 100 different varieties of apples.

To find you closest orchard by county, just visit Scenes of Vermont.

The crisp days of autumn bring perfect weather for an afternoon of apple picking. Most orchards have a nice spot to take a break and have some hot apple cider and even a cider donut or two! Imagine the family all gathering their favorite apples to eat right out of the basket or take home to make an apple pie.

We may not have had a great berry picking season but the weather patterns this year have been perfect to bring us an abundant crop of apples. Growers report this year's crop to be good with plenty of wonderful apples; great news for this 12-million dollar yearly crop.

Apple season traditionally continues through the end of October. But sometime between the end of summer and beginning of winter we are also blessed to be the go to State for maple syrup. Yes! Vermont maple syrup and apple pie-what a great way to transition into the next season in Vermont, Ski Season.

And you thought these seasons were simply called fall and winter.... See you in Vermont for your favorite Season!
