From kid-friendly festivals and family fun to nightlife sips and scrumptious sweets, there is something to enjoy every day from now until the arrival of winter.

Rahr Brewery in Fort Worth has $10 tours and tastings year-long, and right now they have an award-winning Oktoberfest brew (Marzen lager) and Pumpkin (brown ale with spices & fresh pumpkin).

The Dallas Arboretum Pumpkin Festival

Hands down one of the nation’s most impressive pumpkin patches, adults and children alike can enjoy the wonder and beauty of Autumn at the Arboretum this time of year. Aside from the acres of gardens, fountains, floral-lined pathways and historical home tours, nature buffs will find live music, movies, tours, teas and of course the famous Dallas Arboretum Pumpkin Patch, and more. The award-winning village features over 75,000 pumpkins and gourds and offers many photo opportunities, including a straw horse-drawn carriage, pumpkin huts and a watchful scarecrow. 

State Fair of Texas

Fall just isn’t complete without a trip to the fair. Especially if you live in the state that hosts elaborate and sprawling State Fair of Texas. Come down and visit Big Tex and enjoy an array of classic fair games, contests, rides and traditional fair eats. 

Fall is a season of celebration. A time where the weather cools and hearts warm up to the thoughts of family, good food and of course, FUN.
