It’s festival season on Long Island, and we’ve put together a list of some of the best fall festivals and fairs taking place this September and October.

The leaves soon will turn and the smell of apple cider donuts and roasted corn will be in the air. Soon, kids will have to put on an extra layer to keep warm, but no one really will mind if it means enjoying ;a seasonal treat and spending some family time outside. So grab the family, grab a sweater, and enjoy this in-between season before the real chill sets in.

No matter where you live—Nassau, Suffolk, or the East End—autumn on Long Island is beautiful, and there’s plenty of family fun to be had. Check out our fall fun guide for more ideas.
