Autumn Treats & Entertainment: It’s Fall Festival Time in Southeast Michigan!

By: Amber Ogden | September 11, 2015

The season of crunchy leaves, pumpkins and apple cider is upon us. It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Summer gave us numerous festivals to enjoy, and autumn is packed with just as many.

Get ready to add a few of the following to your fall social calendar:

Plymouth Fall Festival begins today and goes through Sunday. Throughout the weekend, enjoy a car show, craft show, pancake breakfast, taste fest and, of course, entertainment and carnival games!

Ride tickets and wristbands can be purchased, and the weekend’s entertainment schedule can be found here. I’ll surely be attending for the elephant ears alone.

Arts & Apples Festival also starts today and goes until Sunday. This year marks the festival’s 50th anniversary! It takes place in Rochester Park and features nearly 300 different artists from all over the country.

The festival offers a Kids Art Zone, fresh apple treats, live entertainment and a food court. Peruse the event brochure here, including a complete list of artists.

Harvest Moon Celebration will be held in downtown Farmington on Thursday, Sept. 17 and Friday, Sept. 18. Thursday’s celebration is a Beer and Wine Tasting with a selection of craft beers, wines and food pairings. Twisted Root Revival will provide live music.

Friday evening is the Harvest Moon Dance, featuring bands, beer, samples from downtown restaurants and more live music.

Pumpkinfest takes place in downtown South Lyon, and runs Friday, Sept. 25 through Sunday, Sept. 27. The weekend will include live entertainment, a parade, food and beverage vendors, children’s activities, a craft show and more.

For the 21 and up crowd, be sure to check out the Beer Garten, with local seasonal brews like Griffin Claw Screamin’ Pumpkin Ale and Witch’s Hat Pumpkin Porter.
