Before we start with our fall festival games and activities for families and kids, let’s find out first what fall festivals are all about:

What Is a Fall Festival?

A fall festival is a gathering or event to celebrate fall in all its beauty.

Think about carving pumpkins, apple cider, fun fall games, pumpkin patches, hayrides, and more.

Where Did Fall Festival Come From?

The fall festival celebration originated in China.

It was derived from the custom of Chinese emperors worshipping the moon during the Zhou Dynasty.

The Mid-autumn Festival first appeared as a festival during the Song dynasty.

Now it is even a Chinese public holiday and has been China’s second-most-important festival.

These and more facts about the autumn festival history can be found here.

What Do You Do at a Fall Festival?

At fall festivals you can find all kinds of fun games and activities for the whole family to enjoy and win prizes.

In case you are thinking about hosting your own fall festival, center your gathering around fun fall activities like:

  • Pie eating contest
