Wintergreen Resort
Nelson County, Virginia

The final weekend of September was crammed full of events all over Nelson! The closer we get to October, the more events you will see unfold as the leaves begin their change to beautiful colors here in the Blue Ridge. A favorite up on the mountain at Wintergreen Resort is the Oktoberfest put on by Wintergreen Performing Arts. Our Mountain Photographer, Paul Purpura, stopped by and grabbed a few shots. We’re not sure if he grabbed a stein of beer too, but hope he got the chance!

In addition to traditional oom-pah band music, people got to try out local microbrewery beers.
