Best Things To Do in Houston in September 2021 With Kids

Grab your pumpkin spice lattes and let's pretend it's sweater weather, because school is back in session and fall events and activities are officially in full swing. It might still be 90 degrees, but things to do in Houston in September with kids include fall festivals and pumpkin patches and we are here for it.

For all of our festival loving friends, grab your cowboy and cowgirl boots and hats, because local favorite things to do in Houston in September, like Texas Gatorfest, the Waller County Fair and Rodeo, and the Fort Bend County Fair, are back and ready for some boot stompin' fun. And that's not all; our favorite local farms are opening back up after a short summer hiatus to regroup after berry picking season. Dewberry Farms, Froberg's Farm, and P-6 Farms are reopening their gates for fall festivals and pumpkin patches in addition to their regular farm fun. Get your cameras ready for all of those pumpkin patch photos! 

We are always updating our activity calendar with even more things to do in Houston with kids, so be sure to bookmark that page for easy perusal, and our Fall Fun and Harvest Guide is packed with ideas that will keep every weekend full of fresh, fun seasonal activities. Make sure to subscribe to our newsletter to get all the best of Mommy Poppins delivered directly to your inbox.
