Peek’n Peak’s Fall Fest Fills the Summer Festival Void by Ti Sumner

Saturday, Oct. 8

If you’re already missing the many outdoor concerts and weekend festivals Erie offers residents throughout the summer months, Peek’n Peak Resort’s annual Fall Fest may be just what you’re looking for. Set in the foothills of western New York, the resort is the ideal location for a family fun day trip.

Spanning the two weekends of Oct. 8-9 and 15-16, Fall Fest is geared as a family-friendly event, with activities running from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Both weekends will feature a farmers market and more than 130 vendors offering everything from crafts to handmade jewelry and food.

The first weekend features The Muttley Crew Frisbee Dogs, a dog adoption day with the Anna Shelter, and the 19th Annual Car Show to benefit Erie Shriner’s Hospital for Children. Jungle Terry’s Wildlife Adventure, a Jam Format Rail Jam, magic shows, carriage rides, and a petting zoo represent just a few of the many festivities available both weekends.

Those who participate in Peek’n Peak’s cold weather activities will be happy to see the return of the SnowSports Equipment Swap. Both new and slightly worn apparel can be purchased through vendors in the main ski lodge during Fall Fest hours both weekends. In addition, all resort season passes will be available at a discounted price.

Fall Fest has become much more than just an exploding pumpkin of a good time. Go for the foliage or go for the food. You may even return home with one more family member of the four-legged canine type. – Ti Sumner
