Whitefish may be famous for its picturesque summers and deep snow, but don’t overlook the many fun activities Autumn has to offer. The Great Northwest Oktoberfest, a double-weekend celebration of beer, pumpkins, and hilarity, takes place the last weekend of September and the first weekend of October, and bookend’s The Whitefish Trail Legacy Run on October 1st. Expect hearty company, delicious food and drink, and lederhosen!

If that’s not reason enough to visit, remember that Fall is an opportunity to enjoy less-crowded hiking trails, little traffic, and the beautiful shades of yellow and orange which make Autumn for many Whitefish locals the prettiest season of the year.
