This time of year is a favorite for many. The clean, crisp fall air, the changing colors of the leaves, bon fires under the stars, pumpkin flavored everything, and of course the fall festivals. Austin is home to many fall festivals and activities that are fun for everyone. Here are a few that you can check out this season.
- Fall Fun Harvest at Sweet Berry Farms- Sept 26th through Nov 8th (closed Wednesdays)
Sweet Berry Farms is a family owned farm in Marble Falls, TX with fun activities for the whole family. In the spring you can pick your own berries and in the fall you pick your own pumpkins. Weekends in October you can paint your own pumpkins, stuff your own scarecrow, feed the goats and horses, and go for tractor rides around the farm. One of the things people love to come for is the Corn Maze. You are given a map with a list of cities located throughout the maze and you have to find all of them in order to exit. The maze is so huge that it takes some people up to 45 minutes to complete! But, once you do find your way out you can enjoy hot apple cider and warm snacks. The cost to get in is free but you pay for the different activities; most range anywhere from $2.50 to $7.00.
- Boo @ the Zoo- Every Friday and Saturday in October from 6:30-9pm at the Austin Zoo. Tickets $15.00
Boo at the Zoo is the Austin Zoo’s annual fundraiser to raise money and awareness for rescued animals. Events are held after close for ticket holders. Kids and parents get the chance to walk around and view the animals by the glow of their flashlights and without the daily crowds. There is a puppet show and haunted train rides throughout the park and everyone is encouraged to wear costumes. Go and enjoy a nighttime picnic with their nocturnal friends.
- Grimm’s Ghostly Tales @ Pioneer Farms- Fridays and Saturdays in October. 7-10pm; Tickets $12.
The haunted Halloween Trails at Pioneer Farms is a favorite for many families in Texas every fall. There are three haunted trails to explore every night. For the young kids, a not too scary “G” rated trail. A “PG” rated trail with spooky surprises, and a “PG-13” rated trail that’s full of scary adventures. After you’ve explored the trails, stick around for spooky ghost stories, fun with pumpkins, food, drinks and souvenirs. There will also be palm readers and fortune tellers on site to give guests a glimpse into their past or present.
- Texas Renaissance Festival- Weekends starting Oct 10th through Nov 29th. Tickets $26 adults/ $13 kids. Located 50 miles north of Houston in the New Market Village is a 55 acre village that is dedicated to paying homage to the King and Queen of Europe and their lifestyle. Actors put on performances in full costume. There are vendors selling arts and crafts from renaissance times, and food and drinks galore. The campground in the “fields of New Market” has a communal bonfire for the whole campground that is fun for the whole family. The Renaissance Festival is a different kind of fall festival but worth the trip.
Fall is the best time of year to get out and enjoy the festivals in your area. So whether you are pumpkin picking, apple picking, haunted housing or Renaissance-ing, enjoy these fall festivals in your area.
