“There’s no better way to celebrate the start of fall than with the community, good food, scenic mountain views, and music. We’ve hosted the Fall Festival for more than two decades now and it’s always a blast!” said Sarah Elson, director of business relations at Massanutten Resort.

With a little something for everyone, attendees can partake in a host of fun including live sets from Baltimore-based country band Red Dirt Revolution, Folk band Strong Water and an upbeat performance by Mojo Mothership.

The whole family can enjoy activities like paint-your-own mini pumpkins, face painting, cornhole, Connect Four, yard Jenga and scenic chairlift rides.
