Fall Events to Attend in Killington

Do you and your family enjoy outdoor activities? Have you always wanted to the East Coast during the fall, to witness the splendor of fall forest colors? Consider visiting Killington between September and November. During the off-season, you will discover better prices and will find yourself missing the regular tourist crowd. Besides that, there are plenty of things to do at Killington all year round with local events you will be sure to enjoy.

People at the Spartan Race in Killington, VT

Spartan Race

For the serious athlete and outdoorsman, Killington is the birthplace of the Spartan Race, and the city has hosted three Spartan World Championship events. This year’s event will be held on September 14 and 15. This race isn’t for just anyone – expect to push your physical strength to its limits with steep slopes, massive climbs, chilly swims, and off-trail descents. Future racers can register on the Spartan website.

A Spartan Open House will be held on September 13. Participants will be able to ask Spartan staff and coaches about what to expect on race day and will have the opportunity to practice with obstacles. 

Killington Brewfest

One of Killington’s most iconic annual celebrations is its fall Brewfest, showcasing over 80 of the finest craft beers in the region. Kick-off the festivities on September 27 for the Brewfest Golf Tournament. The following day return for either the VIP tasting session (1-2pm) or the general tasting session (2-5pm). Imagine yourself sipping specialty beers, enjoying a plethora of savory foods, and taking in the sights and colors of fall at one of Killington’s local lodges. It’s an event anyone with a taste for beer wouldn’t want to miss!

Tickets for the golf tournament cost $75. Tasting sessions are $65 for the VIP tickets and $45 for the general session; however, after September 12, the cost increases to $55. Designated drivers will be available for an additional $10.

Divas of Dirt

On September 20 and October 4, Divas of Dirt Group Rides invite female mountain bikers of all levels to join them on Friday-night rides and happy hours. Riding will take place between 3-5pm, and participation is free with your own bike and valid bike park ticket or pass. Discounted rentals and tickets are available for $22 per person during the riding sessions. 

When is Fall?

Technically, Autumn begins on the Autumnal equinox, which is in late September 23 and goes through the winter solstice, which is December 21. While New Year’s is technically a winter holiday by definition, we thought it at least deserves a mention for something to do this “fall.” The Killington fireworks show is amazing!
