Fall Calendar

Fall in Philly is a time of apple picking and autumnal festivals, and there’s something for everyone. Small kids will enjoy Scarecrows in the Village, Pumpkinland at Linvilla Orchards, and The Count’s Halloween Spooktacular at Sesame Place. Teens love Halloween Nights at Eastern State Penitentiary. Adults find a moment of bliss with their favorite brew at Roxtoberfest or the Philadelphia Craft Beer Festival. And at the top of every cultural list are the South Street Fall Festival and Fall for the Arts. Whatever your interest, Philly is the place to be in the fall.
