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. Want more fall fun?

This is one of our favorite Orlando pumpkin patches due to the amount of shade, plus all the activities that are already included in the admission. The tractor hayride takes you through the Christmas tree forest.
