The crisp air of autumn will soon be upon us and we will be surrounded by vibrant foliage, fall festivals, and special events along the Shore. Pumpkin patches, hayrides, fall festivals… there is so much to do this time of year.
Here is a list to help get you started.
October 20-22nd, 2017 Cape May
The annual Cape May Fall Festival will take place from October 20-22nd at the Cape May Convention Hall. There will be lots of activities for the kids, including crafts, scavenger hunt, and a live touch tank hosted by the New Jersey Audubon’s Nature Center of Cape May. Full list of events and times.
October 21st, 10-4pm Historic Cold Spring Village
Bring your non-perishable food item and enjoy free admission to this annual Pumpkin Festival. Participate in pumpkin painting and games throughout the day while shopping wares for sale from local crafters. Don’t miss the haunted house at the Corson Gandy Barn and the fall hayride through the farm. Food will be available for purchase.
October 21st– Wildwood
The Wildwood Food Truck Fall Festival is back! The festival will take place in Fox Park from 11-6pm, and will feature over 20 food trucks of all different cuisines. New this year is a kids area featuring a bounce house, face painting, a balloon twister, and multiple games. Vendors and crafters will be on site all day long.
There is something for everyone at R&J Farm. Open now for the fall season. Enjoy a hay wagon ride to the pumpkin patch to choose the perfect pumpkin (pumpkin is included in the hayride price). Venture through the mile long corn maze. Looking for some thrill this Halloween season? Try out the Cornfield of Terror, open evenings during the weekend. Be prepared to be frightened.
Visit Sahl’s Father Son Farm where everyone is a kid. Admission to the farm provides you access to all mazes, maze games, pig races, rubber duck races (bring your own rubber duck or purchase one for $1), Kidde Koral playground, and hayride. While at the farm visit the pumpkin patch.

Your family can enjoy a fun hayride and visit the pumpkin patch to pick your own pumpkin at Rea’s Farm.

It will include hayrides to the pumpkin patch, kid’s games, delicious farm made foods including artisan breads, pies, and cookies as well as produce canned in their kitchen.
