Fall Festivals and Fairs for Boston Kids and Families

Crisp morning air, ripe apples, and school bells...all signs it's time for fall festivals and fairs in and around Boston! There are so many autumnal celebrations across Massachusetts that it can be hard to know which ones are good for families. We took the guesswork out of it by narrowing the field down to our favorites. You’ll find good food, fun activities, music, performances, and much more at these fall festivals in Boston which—like so many awesome happenings in our Fall Fun Guide—are perfect for both parents and kids.
