What is Stratton like during the Fall?

Stratton is like a fairy tale during the Fall season – it has a holiday-themed atmosphere and decorations throughout the entire village.

A giant corn maze is in the middle of town with a large tree decorated with candy-corn in front of the Town Hall. The center of Main Street has haystacks for kids to climb on and play in. At night, when darkness falls, the whole village is covered in orange and yellow lights.

The town stays open at night with a full moon and stars lighting up the sky as kids go trick-or-treating for candy around their favorite stores and restaurants. This year, the boardwalk has a pumpkin patch where kids can pick out their very own pumpkin before visiting the movie theater. Stratton even has a haunted house this year!

The days leading up to the festival will be breezy and sunny. The temperature should be around 60 degrees, so enjoy the Fall foliage while it lasts.


Explore the brilliant hues and some of the best panoramas Vermont has to offer including the Stratton Harvest Festival where families can harvest pumpkins and apples, while indulging in fall-themed treats.
