Middlebury Fall Festival, September 8 and 9, 2023.  

Forgot your lawn chair! Check-in at the Gazebo for a Middlebury Chamber of Commerce lawn chair (availability – first-come, first-serve)

The festival takes place in Downtown Middlebury Parks on September 8 and 9. The Entertainment Tent East Park.

Old favorites remain the same; homegrown vegetables and fruits, pumpkins, ornamental gourds, colorful fall mums, local woodcarvers in action, pottery, and Amish art.  

Bring your lawn chairs or borrow one from the information booth to the downtown parks and tap your foot to spirited music entertainment throughout the weekend. 

Don’t miss the drive-in movie at dusk, an opening act for the incredible Friday night fireworks on the Essenhaus Inn campus’s grounds. 

Join the annual Saturday Corn Hole Tournament held at high noon in Brown Street/Memorial Park Side. Attendees must enter Memorial Park at the main park entrance and exit in the rear of the park onto Brown Street. Bring lawn chairs.

Let’s not forget to grab our favorite Amish fried pie, kettle corn, wood-fired pizza, or corn on the cob from the Music Parents Association.  

All downtown shops will be open for extended hours during the festival for shopping convenience. Visit the new General Store, located in downtown Middlebury.

Please note:
