Top 4 Outdoor Summer Activities In New England

Yeah, yeah, we’re probably a little biased… but… We can’t lie—Wachusett Mountain is the place to be for your summer event fun in New England. You might think we’re all about skiing, but as you’ll see, we take a lot of pride in the events we host throughout the year.

Check out a few of our upcoming events, and we’ll see you soon!

Summer Food Truck Festival

What better way to celebrate summer than a food truck festival? (Sunday, July 14th).

We have to admit, we’re pretty proud of this year’s food truck lineup. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a fast food fan, a gourmand, or a weekend foodie—you’ll find something to love from one of over a dozen different vendors:

We’ll also have some jumbo yard games on deck, including Cornhole, Connect 4, Jenga, Ladderball, Arcade games, and more! 

Beer Fest-of-Ale

Get ready to get your drink on with the Wachusett Beer Fest-of-Ale! (Saturday, Sept. 7th).

As the weather starts to cool down, we’re inviting guests to come and enjoy a wide selection of beers (great favorites on tap!) as well as your choice of wines, hard ciders, and all kinds of incredible snacks, courtesy of our food truck vendors.

This is a one-day-only event that drink aficionados won’t want to miss—but guests of all ages are welcome to attend! We’ll be running the SkyRide all day, and there’ll be a few select vendors attending as well. Come relax with some great food, drink, and live music!


Looking for something the whole family can enjoy? Our KidsFest weekend (Sept. 21st – 22nd) was made for you! We put together a great lineup of activities for KidsFest 2019, perfect for all ages.

Do your kids love animals? Don’t miss our headline shows: Frisbee Dogs, The Tramp Show, and The Reptile Show, perfect ways to engage your kids. We also have a great lineup of performers scheduled:

And this is just the beginning. If you prefer something a little more hands-on, we have you covered. We’re talking moon bounces. Mini golf. Giant Jenga. Stuff-a-bear workshops. Obstacle courses. Climbing walls. You name it, you’ll find it at KidsFest 2019—the perfect weekend for kids and kids-at-heart.
