Ontario Fall Fairs & Fall Harvest Festivals

Traditional Fall Fairs Across Ontario

Coloured leaves, crisp air and pumpkins everywhere! If you’re sipping on pumpkin spice latte, it might be time to get yourself to an Ontario fall festival. 

The CNE in Toronto is back! Check out the Ontario Festivals Returning in 2022 to see festivals in other seasons to attend. 


Traditional fall events include agriculture competitions, demolition derbies, live music and of course, the carnival rides, food vendors and games. From September to October, you can celebrate Ontario’s fall harvest season anywhere in Ontario.

The list below is a great start to finding a fall fair or festival perfect for any day trip or to attend while on a weekend away. You might attend a fall fair near you as a tradition or take a small road trip and experience something new.

Fall is a perfect time to enjoy a road trip in Ontario while the fall colour show is on display.
