Homecoming 2020

October 10-11

Welcome Home, Sugarloafers

  • Outdoor Market
  • Scenic Lift Rides
  • Live Music & Activities all Weekend

Reunite with your Sugarloaf family at the 2020 Homecoming Celebration, October 10-11. We'll be offering scenic lift rides and live music all weekend, and plenty of fun activities for all ages. Food trucks will be set up throughout the village, and most restaurants and shops will be open. 

Like all events, there's a chance that we'll need to cancel, postpone, or restructure Homecoming 2020. We'll continue to adhere to all safety guidance from the Maine CDC. 

What to Expect

We're committed to celebrating safely, which means some of our Homecoming traditions will look a little different, and some may have to wait a year. We ask for your understanding, cooperation, and flexibility as we navigate these guidelines together. Here's what we know will be different:

  • All association meetings will be virtual- your association leaders will coordinate.
  • The Annual Meeting will not be held, but we're putting together a video with all the latest updates and info. 
  • There will be no season pass pickup- all passes are automatically mailed to your address on file. 
  • The Sugarloaf Home Show and Upcountry Artists' Shows will not be held, but there will be an outdoor market with several vendors. 
  • The Kids' Climb has been postponed to next year.
  • The Uphill Climb is still being held but with several significant changes (see more below). 

In addition, we will continue to follow all Maine CDC guidelines including capacity limits and mask requirements. Thanks so much for your cooperation, we can't wait to see you. 

Tentative ScheduleWeekend Highlights

Scenic Lift Rides

The SuperQuad will run scenic lift rides on Saturday and Sunday from 9-2 for $5 per person. We encourage riders to hike down from the top if they're able- the hike is lots of fun, and more downhill chairs will be available for those who need them. Tickets can be purchased at Guest Services in the Base Lodge, and proceeds will be donated to local charities.
