CLEVELAND (WJW) — Fall, with its stunning leaves and pumpkins and apples and cooler weather, is here. So we’ve compiled a list of family-friendly festivals to help celebrate the new season in Northeast Ohio.

Obviously, there are plenty of festivals taking place this autumn, but here we’ve only included those that specifically celebrate the season in some way and do not involve Halloween (that’s a whole other list).

Check out this list below.

Berea Harvest Festival
Coe Lake Park, Berea
Saturday, Oct. 15 from noon to 7:30 p.m.

Bounce houses and fireworks at one event? Yes, the festival is here to provide entertainment for the whole family all day long getting people excited for fall and all that entails.


Fairs are not a part of the list, but they certainly help transition the year from summer into fall. The last area fair of the year is kicking off the week of Oct. 2 with the Loudonville Independent Fair in Ashland County. Find a full list of local county fairs right here.
