Even though many of our favorite Fall events have been canceled this year, western Pennsylvania farms have stepped up big time to fill the void with Fall festivals, pumpkin picking, corn mazes, and special events over the next two months.
These safe, socially-distanced, and family-friendly farm events also have plenty of new rules and regulations to follow this year, so check each individual location’s website before visiting so you’ll be completely prepared.
Be sure to bookmark this page and use it as a reference all autumn to see what is happening around town. We’ll keep updating it as we find more festivals.
