Orlando Fall Festivals Pumpkin Patches and Foodie Events

Temperatures may still hover close to 80 even in our coolest months, but any remotely “crisp” day by Florida standards warrants a visit to the closest fall festival, pumpkin patch or craft brewery. Fall festivities start a little early around here too. From pumpkin patches and fall festivals to events for foodies and craft beer aficionados, plan a fall date with our guide to the best Orlando fall festivals and foodie events.
