Fall Celebrations

Minnesota festivals and fall celebrations throughout the state encourage you to enjoy our Minnesota autumn paradise. Minnesota autumn scenery is also the perfect setting for fall color tours.

Minnesota Fall Festivals and Celebrations

Autumn is the time of year when we go to the apple orchards, pumpkin farms and fall festivals all around the state.

From early September until late October you will find celebrations of our autumn scenery and bounty in almost every town and city. Check with the Chamber of Commerce in each town for specific festival dates.

Minnesota Fall festivals in our autumn paradise are a traditional transition from summer to winter. Here is a small sampling of what you will find around the state.
