Autumn in Smith Mountain Lake means it is time for outdoor festivals. The weather is cooling down, so swimming in the lake isn’t really an option, but the crisp fall area is perfect for outdoor dancing, eating, drinking, and music. Here are some of the best upcoming Smith Mountain Lake events.

Smith Mountain Lake Wine Festival

This year will be the 30th anniversary of the Smith Mountain Lake Wine Festival. This two-day festival features more than 30 wineries, 80 craft, and food vendors, as well as a selection of local breweries. There will also be live entertainment throughout the day all weekend. The event is being held at the Crazy Horse Campground on September 29 from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. and September 30 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Tickets range from $16 – $36 and do not include the price of food and wine purchased inside the festival.

Lynchburg Beer, Wine, & Cider Festival

Another one of the best upcoming Smith Mountain Lake events is this year’s 9th annual Lynchburg Beer, Wine, & Cider Festival which will feature more than 75 craft beers, ciders, and wines from around Virginia. The event will also include local artisans, food, and the best live music in the area. Tickets for the festival start at $20 and include 10 – 4 oz. beer and cider samples, unlimited wine samples, and a commemorative beer or wine glass. This year’s festival will be held on September 15 from 12 – 7 p.m. at the Lynchburg City Stadium.
