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