Wintergreen Resort Summer’s End Festival rocks Labor Day weekend


wintergreenThe annual Summer’s End Festival at Wintergreen Resort in Virginia’s spectacular Blue Ridge Mountains will showcase the region’s best live music, along with 151 breweries and wineries, an Arts & Craft show, great food and a bunch more activities to entertain the entire family throughout the resort over Labor Day Weekend, Sept. 4-7.

Festivities warm up Friday evening Sept. 4 with a bonfire and storytelling at Discovery Ridge Adventure Center, followed by live entertainment at The Edge, the resort’s popular local restaurant/lounge. Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 5 and 6, both start with the All-American Breakfast Buffet, with the Arts & Crafts Showcase opening at 10 a.m. and continuing through the afternoon.

The Summer’s End Music Festival is a major attraction on Saturday and Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. Other main attractions include the Wintergreen Summer’s End Mountain Bike Race (17m, 11m, 3.5m) on Saturday and the Summer’s End Trail Run (5K & 10K) Sunday, both starting at 10 a.m.

The weekend lineup also includes programs ideal for the kids: the Treehouse Program at 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday; a “Block Party” Saturday from 1-5 p.m.; and Saturday’s family-oriented Outdoor Movie Night.

Labor Day Monday, Sept. 7, wraps up the weekend fun with a Day at The Lake, featuring “beach Olympics” activities that include the water balloon toss, hula hoop contest and sand castle building at Wintergreen’s charming Lake Monocan.

Wintergreen Resort accommodations options include 230 villa-style condominiums and rental homes, from studio suites to seven-bedroom homes, each offering a fully equipped kitchen, and comfortable living area, and most come with fireplaces and a balcony or deck.

And don’t forget to bring a sweater; the cool evenings mean fall is just around the corner.
