A new fall adventure awaits

One might assume that the Lake Chelan Valley slows down during the fall, but that is simply untrue! In fact, there is so much going on this October that we had to share. Wine, beer, pumpkins and more – a new fall adventure awaits every weekend this month!

1. Harvest Festival

During the first two weekends of October, you will find events such as the grape stomp, barrel room tours, dancing, and live music when you attend the annual Lake Chelan Harvest Festival. This is wine tasting’s peak season, and you won’t want to miss out on all the fun!

2. Skyfest

Ever wanted to jump out of a plane? Well now is your chance! Skydive Chelan is hosting Skyfest, where there will be live music, food and first-time tandems for skydives or paraglide flights. Skyfest will also bring in turbine aircraft, helicopters and a bi-plane! All licensed skydivers and spectators are welcome.

5. Fall Harvest Brewfest

Join Campbell’s Brewfest at the Brick Terrace where pacific northwest breweries will be showing off new brews. Not a fan of beer? Don’t worry, local wineries will also be pouring their fall crush! There will be live music, pumpkins available for carving, and amazing prizes such as tickets to a Seahawks or Kraken game.

Once you’re done enjoying all of the fun happening around town, don’t forget to stop by the Kiosk and pick up a S’mores Kit. Nothing beats kicking up your heels next to a warm fire with chocolaty goodness after a long day of exploring the valley!
