Berries, Vintage Cars, Music, and Food. If it’s blue, it’s probably happening in the Mount Snow area towns of Wilmington, Whitingham and Dover in . . .late July and early August.
The Deerfield Valley Blueberry Festival is the culmination of a community effort coordinated by Janet Boyd from Boyd Family Farm in Wilmington and the Mount Snow Valley Chamber of Commerce in which dozens of businesses, organizations and individuals have created blueberry or blue themed events happening the first ten days of August. “It’s fun, it’s silly, and something everyone can take part in,” Boyd says of the event.
Visitors to the Valley will find a Big Blue Parade, a Blue Street Fair, children’s activities, jam making, blueberry themed specials in the local eateries, blue music events, a blue car auto show, blueberry bake sales, blue beer, special “Blues fees” at Mount Snow’s Golf Course as well as pick your own blueberry opportunities. Don’t miss Boyd Farm’s “Fields of Blue” public art display.

SEPTEMBER EVENTS

09/19/2014 – 09/21/2014 | Vermont Wine & Harvest Festival
From thevermontfestival.com:
On Friday night, the preview tasting of Vermont wines and cheeses is blended into a Village Stroll in the center of Wil . . .mington. Those wanting to just enjoy the evening in the village can listen to outdoor entertainers and everyone is eligible to judge the Vermont Soup Contest. Soup samples and the ballot to vote are free. The wine tastings are $7 per person, featuring three Vermont wineries and a sampling of the Grafton Village Cheese Company’s specialties, which have been handmade in Vermont since 1892.
On Saturday and Sunday, the Festival events shift to nearby West Dover, where it is tucked in beside the landmark clocktower building, nestled under the ridgelines of the 3,600 foot peak. There’s just a hint of an Italian Alps feel to the setting. The gigantic Festival tents, where admission is $15 or $26 for a two-day pass, cover a huge open space that is typically buried in snow banks all winter long. It’s just a few yards from the lifts at the popular Mount Snow resort. As soon as the tables and booths are set up and the decorations are complete, it becomes clear that the Vermont Wine and Harvest Festival is no ordinary event. For one thing, the camaraderie among the various growers and winemakers who come from all over the state makes the Festival feel like a great family reunion.

A Columbus Day Weekend tradition since 1997, the Mount Snow Oktoberfest is one of our signature festivals and was named a 2014 Top 10 Fall Event by the Vermont Chamber of Commerce.
The Kid’s Zone is where families will find festival games like the beanbag toss, a huge bouncy house, pumpkin painting and other kid-friendly activities. While the young ones are playing, the big kids can enjoy a large selection of beers from at least 25 different German and domestic breweries as well as authentic German fare served out of Der Markeplatz in the Main Base Lodge and the sausage roast outside of Cuzzins. Plus, try your hand at games like the keg toss, yodeling contest and stein holding as well as a horseshoe tournament.
Scenic Chair Rides on the Bluebird Express
Enhance your Oktoberfest experience by taking a ride to the 3,600-foot summit of Mount Snow aboard North America’s only six passenger bubble lift – Bluebird Express. Often referred to as “flying couches”, the Bluebird’s chairs comfortably seat six adults for a smooth ride to the top where you will disembark and have an opportunity to explore the alpine environment. Be sure to bring your camera for some photo ops on the observation deck of the Summit Lodge! Purchase your scenic chair ride tickets at the Clocktower Building, Toll Haus or Mount Snow Sports at the Grand.
