Summer at Smith Mountain Lake is known for peak tourism but locals would tell you our gorgeous fall season is just as popular. Autumn’s mild temperatures and clear skies along with the addition of rich red, brown and gold colored leaves is enough to make anyone fall in love with Smith Mountain Lake. What’s more, some of SML’s best annual events happen in the months of September and October.
The Annual Antique & Classic Boat Show kicks off the fall festivities in a big way. It’s a hit with the community, attracting antique and classic boat-lovers from near and far. A lake gem, the Antique & Classic Boat Show is a chance to experience SML when autumn is first beginning and meet some of the friendliest people you’ll ever know.
The Smith Mountain Lake Wine Festival is one of the most looked-forward to events all year. The two-day festival will feature Virginia wineries and juried craft and food vendors.
In October, the Smith Mountain Lake Charity Home Tour takes ticket-holders through spectacularly built, distinctively customized homes while raising substantial support for local charities. It’s an event worth a weekend stay.
Fall is coming soon, and so is your chance to see Smith Mountain Lake at its finest – without the added traffic of tourism season. Make your vacation plans now! See you soon at Smith Mountain Lake, The Deb Beran Properties Team.
