Upcoming Fall Events 2018
Posted by Amanda Schauer | Thursday, September 20, 2018


Everyone put on your scarves and pick up the nearest pumpkin because fall is upon us! You know what that means: pumpkin picking, spiced lattes, corn mazes, scary movies, ghosts and goblins, harvest festivals, and the big dirty run. Wait, what were the last two? Harvest Festival and the Big Dirty Run? These are two great events happening in October at the Suncadia Resort!

Harvest Festival

Suncadia Resort has hosted a Harvest Festival at Nelson Farm for thirteen years! This event lasts goes on for two weekends in October and is a celebration of everything fall. They have a corn maze, pumpkin picking, crafts, a petting zoo, pony rides, fall sports, food trucks, face painting, and live music. Kids and kids-at-heart will both enjoy the fun-filled days at the Harvest Festival!

Big Dirty Run

Suncadia also hosts the Big Dirty Run, happening this year on Sunday, October 14th. This is not your traditional 5K run. Runners will have to run, walk, crawl, and climb to get through their course, which goes through the messy and muddy back trails of Suncadia’s Nelson Preserve neighborhood. This is definitely not a run for the neat-freaks as participants are known to finish the run absolutely covered in mud. Once you cross the finish line, you’ll be rewarded with an ice-cold glass of beer (or root beer for those under 21). Tickets are available now on the Suncadia Resort website.

Vacation Rental 365

Vacation Rental 365 offers six amazing properties in Suncadia Resort that are sure to make you feel pampered as you enjoy the fantastic fall events Suncadia Resort has to offer.

Testimonials

Yakima River Retreat “This cabin is not a cabin at all but a really spacious beautiful lodge-style home. Deer wandered throughout the weekend and the view of the nearby river completed the fairy tale scenery. Add into that a nice hot jetted tub soak overlooking that beautiful setting, from the warmth of the very luxurious master bathroom, completes the restful stay for us. We would definitely come back to this lodge for summer or winter stays. ”

- DHATT 1/16/19

Breckenridge Heights “The views were outstanding and the fresh snow just made it magical. I also need to give a shout-out to the great team at VR365 that we worked with. They went above and beyond to help us and were both compassionate yet professional. Do yourself a favor and rent this house! You won't be disappointed!”

- WALKER 12/18/18

Elk Sedge in Suncadia “This property was so clean and cozy from the moment we walked through the doors.

Elk Run Lodge “Our family of 10 stayed at Elk Run Lodge for my mom's 80th birthday. We were thrilled with the house. The kitchen has a large island and a very large dining room table.

I'm terribly picky about where I stay and I loved this house and hope to rent it again!"
