The end of summer is something that no one in Vermont really looks forward to, even though our fall and winter months are spectacular in their own right. That said, it isn’t like summer is gone already. We’ve got Labor Day to look forward to, and there are scores of great events near our South Burlington and Barre dealerships to consider. Which Labor Day events will you attend?

There’s also a beer and wine garden to enjoy, with live music from regional favorites on each day. Children will also have plenty to do, with workshops and activities to take part in.
Mount Snow Brewers Festival | Mount Snow | Sept. 3-4
Labor Day and beer go together like peas and carrots, and this all comes to a head with the Mount Snow Brewers Festival. For the 22nd year, the festival returns to offer potables from more than 50 different breweries featuring 100 different taps. There will also be all sorts of food on deck, along with live music from Jeff Tuohy Band and Jay Taylor. It’s a bit of a drive, yes, but it’s worth every mile.
