2020 Foliage Season Comes to a Close

"The 2020 Foliage Season has come to an end and this is our last update of the year. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

If you couldn't make it to Vermont this fall, you can still find some gorgeous Vermont Fall scenery in our Autumn Photo Gallery, thanks to local photographers and visitors to Vermont. But truly, you've got to be here to fully enjoy the leaves. And remember, it's never too early to plan your next fall vacation in Vermont!


Foliage color generally starts to change in the higher, cooler areas, spreading down into the valleys, and moving from north to south across the state.

'Peak' colors can be found at many different times & places as the season progresses, and the timing varies from year to year, based on the weather.

Beyond leaf peeping, there are plenty of ways to enjoy Vermont’s mountains, meadows and villages during the other seasons. You can find fun things to do in Vermont with our Calendar of Events. Don't see your event? Feel free to suggest an event so we can add it to our Calendar.


Masks are mandatory in public places effective 8/1/20. #MasksOnVT
If you're planning to attend an event in Vermont, please check directly
with the event to see if it has been rescheduled.


The Foliage Reports are provided thanks to the Vermont Department of Tourism, and by volunteer members of our "Leaf Squad" from around the state. To submit a report for your area, please send it to [email protected], along with a photo of the location you are reporting from, and the date when the photo was taken.

Manchester View Foliage Report 2020-10-28"Although autumn colors are fading with falling leaves, we look forward to a fun and fabulous winter and ski season! With opening day only 27 days away, snow topped Stratton Mountain over the past few days. The Green Mountains welcome visitors to hike and bike, while Manchester has wonderful dining and shopping options, as well as museums, galleries and fun adventures. Our inviting panoramic vista is, as always, spectacular at the Manchester View, all year-long!"

Taconic Foliage Report 10-28-20"The leaves are falling to the ground and the air is crisp at night. Our first snowfall is right around the corner and we are excited for 'all things winter' like apres ski, hot toddies, Vermont fleece blankets, snowman and winter fun. Soon enough, Manchester, Vermont will transform into the very definition of a ski town. Located just moments away from Bromley Mountain, Stratton Mountain, and Killington Mountain, Kimpton Taconic Hotel is the perfect home base for your snow-filled adventures. Check out our winter recreational offers and new apres ski package on our website.

Looking forward to welcoming you soon!"

As we look forward to the winter, we remind everyone to play safe, play smart, and enjoy the mountian.

Hampton Inn Foliage 2020-09-22"Chilly afternoons call for fresh hot coffee enjoyed around the fire pit! At the Hampton Inn & Suites, after the leaves fall the patios will still be showing off their bright pots of mums, pumpkins, and gourds echoing the shades of fall. Our guests continue to enjoy the season’s last burst of glorious color as they explore Manchester. We hope to see everyone back again soon to experience Manchester Merriment and the Magical holiday season."
