Where Are the Fall Festivals Near Me?

That’s the big question and I’m here to answer it!

Not only do you need to know WHERE they are, but you also need to know the dates, days and hours that they’re open.

Needless to say, these greatly vary depending on the festival or festivals you want to attend!

Some are open as early as the first weekend of September and stay open through the first weekend of November.

While others are only open during the month of October.

Also, some are open 7 days a week whereas others are only open on the weekends.

So it’s really important to check the days and hours for each location.

Overall, the best way to get the most up-to-date information for most of these fall festivals is to check their Facebook page. 

How Much Does It Cost To Go A Fall Festival?

Again, each Fall Festival and pumpkin patch varies with cost based on days, times, age and the activities that you want to do.

In addition, it’s very important that you check each website and/or Facebook page for information on:

  • Accepted payment methods (some are cash only)
  • Whether or not reservations are required (some sell out quickly)
