    Available dates:
    Price from: $100

      September 24-27

      This is the 15th year for the Mountain Harvest Festival.  It just keeps getting better and better.  If you haven’t participated in this event yet, it’s time to do so.  Kick off the weekend with a prose and poetry reading and/or a pub crawl.  On Friday and Saturday you can take a tour of a farm or orchard, join the Paonia Bicycle Club for a ride, run a 5K, participate in or cheer on the Grape Stomp, buy goodies at the Farmer’s Market, relax in the park with a variety of live music.  

      The Mountain Harvest Festival is a family friendly.  There are numerous games and activities for children.  Bet they’d like to play “Cow Bingo”.  Place your bet on where the cow will make a stinky deposit and win a prize!  Or, if your family team participates in the Grape Stomp, the Bross will pay your registration fee if you let me know by September 20th.

      Don’t miss the Saturday Sundown Swing - 10 bands in concert in four locations downtown.  This is the only event for which you need a ticket and that one ticket gets you into all venues.   Further information and tickets can be obtained at: www.mountainharvestfestival.org.
