2018 Fall Festival Schedule

Check out these date night ideas with the season of Fall Festivals upon us.

My husband absolutely LOVES the autumn season, so each year I compile a list of our favorite fall festivals.

Carving out time to go to the greatest local harvest festivals can be a chore!
This year, I figured I’d share the spoils with all of you.
Happy Fall!

It's time to celebrate the 2018 Harvest with LongSword's fourth annual Harvest Festival featuring a Pumpkin Chuckin' Fundraiser. In addition to our fantastic wines, we'll also have:
Wait, what's "Pumpkin Chuckin," you ask? It's where you launch pumpkins into our back field using a real trebuchet or a slingshot. Why? Because it's fun! And this year it's also for a good cause!! All proceeds from pumpkin purchases will go to the Siskiyou Upland Trails Association (SUTA) to support the work they do to maintain and create our local hiking trails!
This event is free and SUPERVISED-kid friendly ;)

October 6 & 7 Hanley Farm celebrates the 8th Annual Scarecrow Festival. In the centuries-old tradition farmers used to save their crops, you can make your own scarecrow. When you’ve completed your scarecrow you can enter it in the Scarecrow Contest and compete for a People’s Choice Award, OR take your scarecrow home with. Everything you need to make a scarecrow is available in a kit for just $15 ($10 for SOHS Members). While you’re at the farm plan to take a hay ride, paint a pumpkin or bob for an apple, browse the Hanley Mercantile, enjoy lunch prepared by the Jackson County Master Food Preservers, or tour the Hanley House ($5). Don’t miss your chance to be part of the Scarecrow Festival Weekend!

Join us for the Harvest Festival at the Wood House. Lots of food, shopping and music. Come tour the house and say hi!

Come join us for music, apple cider and other goodies to celebrate the arrival of local apples and fall weather! We will have a selection of fresh apple varieties from local farmers to taste and help you determine which varieties to buy & plant in your own yard. Potted fruit trees will be for sale and you can secure your order for your bare root fruit trees when they arrive in spring.
All ages are welcome at this event, including leashed canines, which will begin at 10 am and run until 2 pm. Live music, local foods including fresh apples from local farms will be available for purchase; a kids crafts table, and more. Take a family photo with our fall colors as your backdrop!
