The Best Fall Foliage Always Begins in the Mountains
Head for Seven Springs Mountain Resort for the 34th annual Autumnfest — a four-weekend celebration of the mountain’s most colorful time of the year.
Autumnfest is a family-friendly escape for all ages featuring kids’ activities, pumpkin painting, face painting, a hay bale maze, a petting zoo, pony rides, magicians, novelty acts such as fire breathers, 80+ artisans and crafters and wagon rides. Plus, kids age 4-7 can try snowboarding for the very first time at the free Pirates Riglet Park!
New this year, guests are invited to explore a variety of specialty events including NamastHay Goat Yoga, Foggy Brews Oktoberfest, Seven Springs Mixology Class and much more.
The first weekend of Autumnfest is the Oktoberfest Circus Weekend. From Sept. 29-30, join the aerial trapeze artists from Zany Umbrella Circus, fire breathers and contortionists and check out the changing leaves. A traveling magician, David Lawrence, will host a family-friendly magic evening in Foggy Brews on the 29th.
Cut the circus and just Oktoberfest. From Oct. 6-7, the Oktoberfest Weekend at Seven Springs will feature Bavarian Games, German food and beer tastings and more. Sample craft beers and enjoy live entertainment at the Foggy Brews Oktoberfest on the 6th. Guests should dress in their German best — lederhosen encouraged.
Cut through the chill with some chili from Oct. 13-14 at Chili Weekend. Seven Springs’ culinary professionals will be cooking up unique variations of the classic cold weather staple for the Chili Extravaganza. New for this year: on the 13th, head to the top of the mountain for a casual yoga class with adorable classmates — pygmy and full-size goats.
Halloween comes early to Seven Springs this year. The Kids’ Halloween Weekend will run from Oct. 20-21 and feature a kids’ costume parade, pumpkin swim, Mac and Cheese tent and more. There’s also another new event — the Seven Springs Mixology Class on the 20th, where guests can learn to make (and taste) five classic cocktails and sample seasonal favorites.
