We have decided that Fall really should be at least a month longer than it is. There is SO much to do and it’s such a fun time of year.
If you are looking for a Pumpkin Patch – Our 2019 guide can be found HERE.
If you are looking for Halloween specific events, then those can be found HERE.
This list is dedicated to those fabulous local Fall Festivals and events. We will fully admit that there is a fuzzy pumpkin covered line between what qualifies as a “patch” and what qualifies as a Fall Festival, but we do feel there is enough distinction for them to have their own space… thus, here we are.
Without further adieu… Your Guide to Local Fall Festivals and Pumpkin Fun!
