Fall Festivals Near Philly for Harvest Fun in 2021

Fall is back in full force in Philly this year with many festivals returning and many more re-debuting after taking last year off. So grab your hoodie and sneakers and head out with the kids to the farm, city, or suburbs 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 more.

For additional ways to spend fall days, browse through our event calendar as well as our fall activity guide

Philly families should remember to check with each venue before going as some request visitors purchase tickets in advance.
