Fall Festival

October 22 – 23, Fairfax

Halloween is full of scary events, from Six Flags’ Fright Nights to Universal’s Horror Nights. However, not everyone appreciates the edgy side of the season, which brings about more family-friendly events that won’t scare the bejesus out of you. The Original Farmer’s Market’s Fall Festival is the perfect celebration of the season for anyone who wants to avoid the scares. With live music, kid’s crafts, pumpkin patches, and much more, this is the premiere event for ringing in Halloween with the family. [More info]
