Updated for 2017

Now that Labor Day is over and the kids are back to school it’s time to focus on fall. There is so much to do in Connecticut during the autumn months. Apples, pumpkins, foliage, festivals — Connecticut has plenty of fall fun. I’ve created a list of family-friendly fall events & activities in and around Connecticut.

CT Fall Family Events

Some of these events are new for the 2017 fall season and some are old favorites. I have a few new ones that I want to visit this year. How about you?
