This free fall extravaganza, hosted by Come Alive Outside and Real Rutland, promises a day of fall festivities and community spirit, including a truck full of puppies, live music and sweaters of all stripes and sizes.
What can folks expect at the Sweater Weather Soiree? Here’s a peek at some of the festivities:
Homegrown Delights: Folks can purchase yummy treats from Marble Valley Catering and Inspired Cookies and warm up with a cup of Chaga Chai. They can also explore local products and goods at various vendor stalls, including Fairy Hair, Rutland is Rad, and Phoenix Books.
Smooth Tunes: Musician Elizabeth Reedy will play at the soiree, setting the mood for the event, while emcee Nanci Gordon will bring the energy and keep the fun rolling.
Free Activities: Enjoy fun interactive activities and games provided by Come Alive Outside and other Rutland organizations. Join Come Alive Outside for an urban legends stroll through downtown Rutland at 4:30, or sing some tunes during “scary-oke” our Halloween-themed karaoke, instead.
Sweater Swap and Auction: Get ready for a sweater swap and auction at 3pm, where patrons can trade or bid on funky and cozy fall sweaters. Bring a sweater to swap or simply pick a new one. The sweater swap is free to all. The Sweater Auction has items from local stores, along with national retailers up for bid. Auction-goers might find their new favorite autumn fashion piece!
Butternut Goldens: A truck full of Golden Retrievers will wag their way into the soiree. Visit them for pets, pics, or both!
Outdoor Movie Screening: As the sun sets, gather with friends and family for an outdoor screening of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Scary Stories is based on a book series for young adults and is rated PG-13 for gore, freaky creatures and supernatural scares. All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Bring a chair or blanket to sit on the grass and enjoy the film.
The Sweater Weather Soiree is a FREE event, and no RSVP is needed. We invite the community to come together, celebrate the joys of fall, and make unforgettable memories.
