As the temperature drops, many fall festivals are popping up all over the area. We’ve put together a quick guide to take a look at some of the festivals near Exton and Warminster that are must-visits this year.
Hellerick’s Family Farm
Enjoy the foliage, atmosphere, and fun at Hellerick’s Family Farm, which hosts a fall harvest festival this year. Open daily until November 4, general admission includes entry to the 18-acre adventure farm, which has over 45 activities for children and adults. You can stay as long as you’d like, and there’s free parking, too.
Activities include hayrides through the scenic farm, a challenging 5-acre corn maze, giant 100-ft. corn chute slides, and access to the pumpkin, gourd, and squash fields. “Junior farmers” are also welcome, with a fun area for those five and younger. This includes junior tube slides, hobby horses, tricycles, and tractors.
All proceeds benefit Kennett Square at the yearly Kennett Brewfest, with the 2018 edition being held on October 13. Over 100 breweries offer unique and popular seasonal brews, with live music, food trucks, vendors, and a whole lot more. Pick up a connoisseur ticket, and enjoy rare and unusual beers prior to the beginning of the regular Brewfest event.
Participating breweries include Avery Brewing, Cape May Brewing, Dogfish Head, Oskar Blues Brewery, Victory, and Yards Brewing. All attendees will have access to the food and merchandise vendors, bands, sponsor tables, and more during the event.
Shady Brook Farm
It’s fall fest time at Shady Brook Farm. Explore the Pumpkin Fest, PumpkinFest After Dark (spooky!), and Horror Fest. There are wagon rides, pumpkin picking, a 5-acre corn maze, large jumping pillows, and plenty of festival fun.
Make memories at PumpkinFest with a wagon ride, pumpkin picking, or a visit to the corn maze. Check out the silo or the beer garden for locally brewed craft beer, Rose Bank Winery wines, and more. Want to explore a truly haunted farm? HorrorFest allows you to do so, with attractions like the Hayride of Horror and Barn of Horror.
