Fall is in full effect, the weather is beautiful, and I am ready to watch the leaves turn and well—fall! If you are like me, fun in the Autumn sun is a much-awaited part of the year. As always, Anne Arundel County is bringing the best fall festivities to soak up the sun and have endless fun. Whether you are looking to have a family fun day, plan a child-friendly play date, or try some of the finest homegrown harvest creations, there is a festival happening for you.

Homestead Gardens

I cannot think of a better way to kick off Fall than great food, great weather, and boundless fields of good vibes. Luckily, Homestead Gardens feels the same. If you are looking for a one-stop shop for a delicious variety of food, desserts, ciders, and festive treats, you do not want to miss the Homestead Harvest Weekends food trucks at the Davidsonville location. Plus, the fun does not stop at food trucks! On October 9 and October 23, Raptor Eye's Live Birds of Prey Exhibits will be at the Homestead Gardens in Severna Park. The exhibit will feature an up-close experience with owls, hawks, falcons, and more.

Knightongale Farms

Knightongale Farms in Harwood is bringing new activities and many classic favorites to the harvest season. This year's fall festival features two brand new 40-foot barrel slides for the entire family to enjoy. With over a dozen fun activities, including a 3-acre corn maze, moon bounce, hayrides, and more, you will surely make plenty of memories. Of course, you are going to want to check out Maryland Pumpkin Patch while you are there! I mean, seriously, what is life without 50-pound pumpkins? Pretty boring in my book.
