I can’t believe we are in the second week of October, and with multiple seasonal events going on this time of the year; I’m looking forward to getting out and enjoying the crisp fall air and beautiful views.
There are many fall festivals and fairs happening in our region this month, but today I thought I would share my top picks with you.
Fall Festivals in Upstate New York You Won't Want to Miss
I love how almost every Upstate New York town puts on a fair or festival of its own to celebrate the newly crisp air. Here are my suggestions of October Fall Festivals in Upstate New York You Won't Want to Miss
Celebrate the bountiful Western NY harvest as the village shines in its finest fall colors! From livestock shows to cooking competitions, there will be non-stop activities all weekend long, in the tradition of the country fairs of days gone by. Shop the merchant tents, eat your way through everything from apples to strudel, and catch the base ball championship game!
Watch mechanical wizards compete to launch pumpkins the farthest using trebuchets, a siege engine used in the Middle Ages. Admission is free to day-long competitions. Rain or shine, fun for the whole family. BBQ available along with BBQ contest tasting and a farmers' market.
It’s a weekend focused on mystical fun for the whole family! Celebrated October 26 and 27, 2019, Wizarding Weekend Ithaca, an outdoor street festival for fans of magic and fantasy, will be held in Downtown Ithaca. Pull together your wands, robes, and fairy wings for a spellbinding fall weekend.
