Wondering what there is do this fall in WNY?  Normally at this time of year, the Fun 4 Kids Calendar is packed with fall and Halloween themed events throughout WNY.  With many attractions still closed or operating at a reduced capacity, many people are wondering what is left to do this fall in WNY!

I’ve put together a list of places and/or events that are open and taking place for fall 2020 in WNY.

What’s open?

There are still some fall favorites open and ready for you to visit.

Apple Picking – Many of the apple orchards are open.  Here is a list of places throughout WNY.  Before you visit, please call ahead to confirm their hours of operation haven’t changed and they are open.

Pumpkin Patches – Aside from The Maize in North Tonawanda, all the pumpkin patches on this list seem to be open for 2020.  Some are operating a limited capacity and/or not having as many special events so again, please call ahead before visiting.

Hiking – WNY is home to some amazing foliage during the fall.  Most hiking trails are open!  Here’s a list of family friendly hiking spots you can enjoy throughout the area.

Maple Festival – Within a short drive of Buffalo, you’ll find some maple farms.  In October, there is a fall maple festival and according to Merle Maple Farm’s Facebook event, it’s still on the schedule!  Here’s a link to the event for details. 

Special Events – I’m monitoring all the channels and keeping the Fun 4 Kids calendar up to date with all the special events I find.  Right now (9/14/20) there aren’t too many but as I see them, I’ll add them so please continue to check the calendar.
