There’s nothing quite like the fresh, crisp feeling of an autumn day, and nothing that’ll get you more excited for the season of colorful foliage, pumpkin spice lattes, and jack-o-lanterns than a trip to a fall festival. Bring the whole family along to one of these fun and festive events in Kent County this season, and you’ll be brought back to the hayrides and pumpkin carvings you experienced during your own childhood. These are our top three fall festivals in Kent County, listed in alphabetical order...
