Harvest Festival and Fall Fair Fun in New Jersey

New Jersey's farms are bursting with ripe apples ready to be plucked from the trees, which means harvest festival season is underway. Though many seasonal events have been postponed or canceled due to the pandemic, these outdoor autumn activities are on! We've rounded up more than 20 great fall and harvest fests in New Jersey, all packed with signature seasonal fun like hayrides, corn mazes, pumpkin picking, pie contests, scarecrow making, live animals, live music, and more. Some even incorporate a little early Halloween fun.

For more seasonal activities around the Garden State, be sure to check out our Fall Fun Guide and our list of 40 Things We Can't Wait To Do With NJ Kids This Fall. As always, be sure to click through to each venue's listing for full details and event updates before heading out and make sure you pack a mask and heed these safety rules for Halloween and seasonal fun.
