Harvest Festival at Billings Farm

In fall, New England is famous for its glorious foliage as billions of leaves change from green to a kaleidoscope of autumn colors. The air is crisp and cool — perfect for hiking, biking or a classic drive along a back road where farm stands are piled high with crunchy apples and orange pumpkins.

Whether you're looking for outdoor activities, great food, or entertainment, we've got over 20 events to choose from all over the Upper Valley this fall!

Outdoor Activities For Adults & Kids

Fall is one of the most desired time to be outdoors in New England, with crisp air and the smell of apple cider brewing there are many fall-related activates to partake in. Whether you’re looking to bring the whole family or just you and a pal, these activities will get you in the autumn mood.
