Autumn and harvest fests in CT

Fall is an amazing time to be in Connecticut, with kid-friendly fairs and festivals happening nearly every weekend to celebrate autumn in the Nutmeg State. Whether you and your kids are keen to commemorate the apple harvest, pumpkin season, music, or more, there's a festival or fair that's sure to make for a memorable afternoon in the crisp fall air with your family. Most of these have free admission, but charge small fees for specific rides or activities so you'll want to confirm that before heading out.
