Tips To Make Your Fall Festival Fun for Everyone

Fall festivals are a great way to bring people together. There’s something fun for everyone to do at almost every station. The combination of the weather, beautiful scenery, and joyous activities will surely draw a crowd. Who says summer is the best time to throw a festival? Check out these tips to make your fall festival fun for everyone.

Fall Comfort Foods

One of the greatest things about fall, aside from the weather, is the food. Fall is the best season for eating some of your favorite treats, and, more importantly, you can always make a contest out of them.

There’s nothing like a warm apple pie combined with a brisk fall breeze. The pie warms you up, and the breeze reminds you of this amazing season. Have a few stations for pie, hot apple cider, and kettle corn. And consider making one of them a contest and allow anyone can participate in the fun.

Make a Memory

People will want to remember this day. While everyone will likely have a phone on them to take pictures, you can make the documentation process more enjoyable. Install a fall photo booth for people to stop and take pictures with the props you provide.

Additionally, you can have more than one station to accompany a specific theme centered around the season. Consider dedicating one to Halloween. Everyone loves to play dress-up, so provide patrons with a couple of costumes to try on.

Keep It Clean

With all the fun of running around, you’ll need some sanitation, too. Make sure you always keep the food area clean so that people feel comfortable while feasting on their treats. Also, since the festival is outside, make sure you provide visitors with adequate bathroom accommodations.

For every 25 people attending, you need to provide one portable restroom. And you want to make sure you properly clean them to avoid odor issues. No one wants to walk by the bathroom and remember its purpose.

Pumpkin Crafting

It’s not a fall festival without pumpkins. Naturally, you’ll have them placed everywhere for decoration, but consider having a crafting station as well. Divide them into two sections: one section for adults and another for the younger crowd.

The separation is for safety reasons. Maybe the adult section allows for carving, while the children’s section offers paint and glitter. If you want to make the stations interchangeable, that’s OK too. Just make sure you remind everyone of the proper safety guidelines and have an adult accompany all children 11 and under.

Your fall festival will surely be more than fun for everyone with these tips. Get ready to have a joyous crowd on your hands.
