Fall Traditions Across Ontario

It isn’t fall without a fun outing to a festival or fall fair. Traditional events include agriculture competitions, demolition derbies, live music and performances or the carnival rides and games. From September to October, you can celebrate Ontario’s fall harvest season at small and large towns up north that are near or far north of Toronto. The list below is a great start to finding a fall fair or festival perfect for any day trip or to attend while on a weekend away.

It’s a perfect time to enjoy a roadtrip in Ontario while the fall colour show is on display.
