Fall Festivals

Fall into Fall Festival Fun in Southwest Michigan

Autumn in Kalamazoo is jam-packed with delicious donuts, perfect pumpkins, and corn mazes among other fun fall activities.

And while partaking in these seasonal traditions individually is a blast, local organizations often combine many into one mega festival for local families to enjoy.

Whether termed “harvest festivals” or “fall festivals,” they all bring fantastic family fun, often accompanied by great food, music, and hayrides.
