The Stifel Killington Cup Venue
The Superstar Trail is where both of the World Cup races are held during the event. Spectators can gather at the finish area and the K-1 Base area. Naturally, this is an outdoor venue, so be sure to dress warm and wear good footwear. You can get excellent views of the race at different places along the racecourse. However, two jumbo screens also give spectators views if they’re hanging out on the upper part of the trail. Other than ADA-accessible viewing areas, all spectator areas are standing room only with no chairs.
Concerts and Entertainment
The weekend is full of fun and events for attendees at the Women’s World Cup. Concerts are held on both Saturday and Sunday and are scheduled to host a mix of talent, including Young the Giant and Mix Master Mike. A huge afterparty kicks off Saturday at the Wobbly Barn with the Krishna Guthrie Band, a special guest DJ, and more. A fireworks show marks the end of the Killington Cup on Sunday, and food and drinks are available from multiple vendors in the Festival Village.

The Killington Resort opens up its parking for all event attendees for free. Shuttles are also available to get around the park during the event. However, unless you are staying at the resort, overnight parking is not allowed. Limited parking in the K-1 preferred parking lot is also available for a fee if you can catch a spot in time.
