Guide to Kentucky Fall Activities

Every Fall I get a rush of energy to do ALL THINGS FALL. Apple picking, pumpkin patches, football games, haunted houses, and anything else that screams the season. However, it can be tough to sort through all the array of activities going on to make the best decisions for your schedule and taste. I've put together this list to give you a comprehensive guide to the Fall events going on in Kentucky so you can soak up and get the most of this glorious season! (Special thanks to my friend Jacquie for planting this idea in my head)

  1. Ah! I wish I was local. This is a great resource.

  2. This is a great idea! I wish I had done this when I lived in Chicago - there was always so much going on but I never had it all in one place!

  3. Such a comprehensive list - wishing I can find one like this for Boston! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. Wahhhh I miss fall in KY! Pumpkin patches, haunted houses and fall festivals, so much fun! That haunted zip line sounds amazing! I miss the USS Nightmare so much! The best haunted "house" ever! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  5. i had no idea there was so much to do around here! thanks for sharing :)

  6. Court Days!!! I have never been but have friends who go every year. And we totally need to check out a pumpkin patch! Great list! :)

  7. this is a great list! wish I lived closer! xx,kenz

  8. Can't wait for our Apple Fest to get here! Great guide for Kentucky fall activities!

  9. Court Day is the best! But I'm a little biased...

  10. Awesome list girl - I would wanna do all the things! Can't wait to see how much you get to accomplish :)

  11. How cute! what an awesome list for anybody visiting or living in Kentucky!

  12. I use to go to Evan's orchard when I lived in Lexington. It was super fun. I feel like my October's are always so full of running with other things that I never get to enjoy the seasonal activities. Although I did go to Apple Day even if I froze and was soaked.

  13. I love going to Reid Orchard's apple fest!

  14. What a great idea for a roundup! I love people who are proud of where they live, and yes, I can't wait to partake in Fall-esque activities either! (Though the lower temps come a little later to Arizona)

  15. We used to do Court Day every fall when I was a kid - we'd have country ham biscuits with honey and then head over to check out all the crafts and goodies. I miss that! Kentucky is such a fun place to be in the fall!
