    The 9th Annual Vermont Wine & Harvest festival is coming soon to Southern Vermont’s Deerfield Valley. Locals and visitors alike anticipate this fantastic annual fall event during Vermont’s awarding winning fall foliage September 16th – September 26th. This year’s Festival takes place September 17th and is bookended by week-long events: Friday the 16th – Wine Stroll-Soup Contest, Saturday the 16th – the Wine and Harvest Festival and Wine Auction, and Sunday the 18th – the Vermont Wildlife Festival and the start of the week-long Restaurant Week in the Valley. Wine events will once again take place throughout the Deerfield Valley over the weekend.
    We are pleased to share that the Vermont Wine & Harvest Festival has been designated as one of North America’s Top 100 events by the American Bus Association, the only Vermont event to have made the list! The festival weekend starts off with a Wine Stroll-Soup Contest in historic Wilmington on September 16th from 5pm to 7:00pm. Shop owners, restaurants and churches open their doors and host soups donated by area restaurants. Ticket purchases include the opportunity to taste Vermont wines, Vermont Distillers spirits and Whetstone Ciders at select stores throughout town. Live music by the Wyld Nightz Duo will be playing, as tasters and shoppers enjoy the delights of the village of Wilmington restaurants.

    September 17th brings the festival to Dover and the Mount Snow Resort. There will be over 70 vendors, including Vermont wineries & distilleries to enjoy. Festival goers may shop, taste and savor a truly unique Vermont experience in the tented festival area. Take a break from the tents and ride the Bluebird lift for a summit view of Southern Vermont’s glorious fall foliage or enjoy the tunes of the Straight-Up Band, Legato Blues Band and others.
