Your one ticket purchase will include all activities an tastings at all participating businesses from 3:00 on Friday May 3rd to 5:00 on Sunday May 5th.

The organizers would like to thank the RiverWalk Resort at Loon Mountain, Mill Falls at the Lake, and Path Resorts for their generous sponsorship and contributions to our raffle prizes. Also included in this year’s raffle are prizes donated by the Black Swan Inn, the Henry Whipple House, Indian Mound Golf Club, Farm to Table Market, Ciao Pasta, North Country Brew Bus, Hermit Woods Winery, Seven Birches Winery, and many more wonderful prizes being added all the time.

This event was held for five years from 2011 to 2015 in October. For a number of reasons the event was put on hold from 2016 to 2018. We are very excited to bring the event back and during a season that should prove to be a little less hectic than peak leaf peeping season. We are also excited to expand the event to include area breweries and distilleries.

Canterbury Aleworks, Coffin Cellars, Cold Garden Spirits,
Gilmanton Winery,

Hermit Woods Winery, Black Bear Vineyard, Sap House Meadery,
