In Waterville Valley NH, the mountains have already begun their transformation into a vibrant kaleidoscope of color. We’re not quite at peak foliage yet, so the leaves will get brighter and bolder in the upcoming weeks!

With some luck, peak foliage will arrive just in time for the 23rd Annual Chili Challenge and 10th Annual Rally in the Valley, taking place Saturday October 1st.

The Rally in the Valley all vehicle show will feature an array of impressive rides, from vintage cars to decked-out Camaros. Admire incredible cars and stunning foliage as you chow down on some homemade chili from local restaurants. Once you’ve sampled every restaurant’s chili, you can vote on the winner! 

Fall Foliage Fest is right around the corner, taking place October 8th-10th. This annual autumnal celebration will feature free outdoor concerts, merchant tent sales, a ski swap, a live animal presentation, fun-runs, and races. Whether you’re looking to snag fabulous gear deals or simply jive to some live music – Fall Foliage Fest has something for everybody! The best part? You’ll be surrounded by radiant foliage and colorful mountains all weekend long!
