Fall in Wilmington Vermont

The festival gets you to Wilmington at just the right time to witness the breathtaking brilliance of fall. It’s the perfect backdrop for the festival, as you spend time in the picturesque village and shop the unique shops and browse for antiques.

While you’re there, don’t miss the opportunity to visit some of the nearby parks and trails, too. The weather is cool, but not cold, and the fall foliage is spectacular from the top of their mountains.
