By Guest Blogger Michelle Barson

Few fall seasons can compare to ours in the beautiful state of North Carolina. Our state offers beautiful, brightly colored changing leaves with cooler but warm weather all under the clear Carolina blue sky. This is also one of the the best seasons of the year for families to find fun, affordable activities close to home. The Triad (and nearby) features a number of Fall Festivals each year and 2019 does not disappoint. Bookmark our TMoM Fall Festivals 2019 page so you never miss an addition or update and be sure to check it each week as submissions continue throughout the season.

As new events get announced we will continue to add them, so keep checking this list. In addition, all of these events and more can be found on our community calendar. At the end of September, we will run a new post that features October festivals!

Think we missed one? Email me at michelle.naomi.barson@gmail.com to have it added to the list.
