Fall is my favorite time of year for so many reasons, and the sheer number of fall festivals in our area is one of them. This year we are featuring all the festivals and fairs by month instead of compiling them all into one post. Today’s post focuses on fall events happening in September (in chronological order by week) in our area and nearby.

Most of the events listed below are meant for families, although we did include some that are more appropriate for date nights or fun with adult friends!

To view Triad area pumpkin patches, hayrides and more, CLICK HERE!
To view festivals and Trunk Or Treats happening in October, CLICK HERE!

STAY TUNED because in a few weeks we will publish a list of November festivals and events.

All of these festivals are listed on our Event Page! If your favorite fall festival is not listed below, please email to get it added.
