These Fall Festivals and Events are the Best in the Country

Oprah Magazine Logo By Laurren Welch of Oprah Magazine | Slide 1 of 21: Before you know it, the hot summer days will fade away and fall will be upon us! And you've gotta admit: whether you live in a climate that experiences true colorful foliage or you're graced with year-round sun (looking at you, Los Angeles), there's something magical about autumn (beyond the yummy cider smells, themed Halloween parties, and seasonal home decor). Along with longer days and cooler temps, the months of September, October and November usher in an influx of fun fall activities, with most aimed at celebrating the harvest of that region. From cranberries in Wisconsin to apples in Georgia and Oysters in Massachusetts, we rounded up some of the best fall happenings across the country that kids and the whole family will love. It's not all pumpkins and hayrides, though—we threw in a few speciality events (tacos, anyone?) for good measure. Although several have been postponed due to the uncertainties around the coronavirus pandemic, the festivals where you can safely social distance are still going forward with their 2020 events. Check them out below and start planning your next adventure—even if that means staying at home and marking your calendars for 2021.
