12 Fall Festivals Near Philly for Harvest Fun in 2020

A baker's dozen of fall festivals in and near the Philadelphia area return in 2020 with new social distancing rules in place. Families can head out to the farm, the city, or the 'burbs to soak in the arrival of autumn and all these fun fall activities.

Many Philly fall festivals come with pumpkin patches, scarecrow-building, corn mazes, and hayrides, while others have live entertainment, petting zoos, and maybe hard cider for the grown-ups. We're also starting to see the return of some Halloween events at these fests, including trick or treat fun and costumes.

For additional ways to spend fall days, browse through our event calendar as well as our Fall Activity Guide. We're constantly add new in-person events, as well as virtual activities for safe, at-home fun.

In COVID-times, Philly families should remember to check with each venue before going as many request that visitors purchase tickets in advance. Remember to wear a mask and adhere to social distancing guidelines. It is always a good idea to pack hand sanitizer and an extra mask for safe-keeping.
