Schweitzer Mountain ID Fall Festival

Schweitzer Fall Festival

Schweitzer's 20th annual outdoor microbrew and music festival is taking place in Sandpoint Idaho on September 1-3 (labor day weekend). Offerings include tasting tents featuring regional microbrews, wine and soda. Several bands will perform throughout the day. This year, Schweitzer is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Fall Fest by extending it to a 3-day event. That’s right, 3 days of great fun, great music and great beer!

Part I: Microbrews

This year Schweitzer will be serving up several regional wines, hard ciders and over 40 beers on tap! For the kids, the soda tent will be a fun place where they can mix their own flavors and create wild concoctions. We’ll have arts and crafts vendors throughout the village and live music playing all 3 days. For a full schedule, check out the Fall Fest at Schweitzer website. The ever-popular souvenir mugs, glasses and steins will be on sale all weekend as well.

Part II: Music

Saturday -

11 - 1 Justin Lantrip

1:30 - 3:30 Adrian Xavier

4 - 6 Pickwick: Seattle phenomenon and Sasquatch + SXSW festival alum. KEXP called the Seattle band's sound a "juggernaut of 60's soul-inspired rock fusion that tears away from its roots and soars even higher."

Sunday -

11 - 12:30 Cedar and Boyer

1 - 2:30 Emily Wells

3 - 6 Jerry Joseph Band: Rock 'n' Roll at its finest and most raw. After three decades in the music business, Jerry Joseph is a powerful songwriter and performer.

Monday -

11 - 1:30 Not Quite Punk

2 -4 Larry and His Flask: A Fall Festival favorite from last year, the band is freshly back from Warped Tour. Their playing is fast and accurate. Many critics find their music hard to describe: labels and genres bend into a kind of rowdy bluegrass country with punk rock roots and a hint of gypsy soul.

Have you been to Schweitzer Mountain or Sandpoint?

Did you go for summer fun or winter sports? Have you attended the Fall Fest before or heard one of the performers? We wanna hear back from you!

This is the final weekend of summer operations and the chairlift will be open for sightseeing, hiking and mountain biking.

Sandpoint Lodging

There are many fine bed and breakfasts in the region where you can find lodging over labor day weekend.
