5 of the Best Snowmass & Aspen Fall Events to Attend This Year
1. Snowmass Balloon Festival | September
The Snowmass Balloon Festival usually takes place right before the official autumnal equinox so the air is crisp and perfect for ballooning. Watch the sky as it fills with colorful balloons during this incredible festival. Gaze up from below as more than 30 pilots compete in challenges and races that will keep you captivated for hours!
2. Snowmass Wine Festival | September
Sip your way into fall at the Snowmass Wine Festival. Every September, the Rotary Club of Snowmass Village puts together this special weekend of wine to raise money for their charities. Attendees can enjoy a themed dinner and wine pairing on Friday and an afternoon of wine tasting on Saturday.
3. Aspen Filmfest | September
Every year, film fanatics join together to celebrate the art of cinema at the Aspen Filmfest. Unlike many other film festivals, this is not a competition. Instead, it is a chance to watch everything from new documentaries to winning films from the festival circuit. In the past, this has been the first-ever showing of popular movies such as The Imitation Game, Whiplash, Argo, and The King’s Speech. You never know what this year will bring!
4. The Golden Leaf Half Marathon | September
September introduces perfect marathon weather to our mountain town! The Golden Leaf Half Marathon is one of the most-anticipated Aspen fall events. Chosen by Trail Runner Magazine as one of “America’s 14 Most Scenic Races,” you’ll get to run through our picturesque fall colors on a course that leads from Snowmass to Aspen.
5. The Meeting Filmfest | October
It’s time to get ready for the ski season! The Meeting is a great way to get excited for skiing and snowboarding while appreciating the arts. You’ll see a variety of the year’s best ski and snowboard films followed by talks by industry professionals.
