Vermont Brewers Festival and COVID-19 UPDATE:

With increasing public concern over the potential transmission of COVID-19, Killington Resort has decided that in the best interest of everyone, we will not be hosting the Vermont Brewers Festival on Saturday, March 21, 2020. While this was an extremely difficult decision to make, we are in complete support and committed to the health and safety of our attendees, brewers, vendors, and staff and feel it best to err on the side of caution to ensure everyone’s health and well-being during this pandemic.


As a non-profit 501(c)6 our festival at Killington and our festival on the waterfront in Burlington are our annual fundraisers. The money raised from our events directly supports the brewing industry through marketing, education and advocacy for Vermont made beer. We are extremely heavy hearted to not be celebrating Vermont beer with all of you.
