With no shortage of enthusiastic fall lovers in Connecticut it is no wonder that these proud Yankees are host to an eclectic mix of seasonal events and activities for everyone to enjoy at every age.
Connecticut’s picturesque back-roads, charming towns, and pretty foliage make the journey as memorable as the destination. The Nutmeg State’s lovingly tended family apple orchards, plentiful pumpkin patches, and cozy hayrides are the very things that capture a child’s imagination and create family memories.
Connecticut boasts dozens of local food festivals and fall festivities to delight adults and kids both. Favorite annual events include Milford’s scenic Pumpkins on the Pier fundraiser, Wallingford's Scarecrow Festival, and Lyman Orchard's Clambake, and Mystic's Wild Mushroom Festival. With several Oktoberfests and a handful of harvest events held at the local vineyards, you’ll find something to enjoy every weekend in all corners of the state.
