As we move into August, we're looking ahead a bit toward the season of pumpkins, apples and fun fall festivals! 

Morgan County is still, in many ways, farm country. In farm country, the end of summer means harvest time, and what do you do after the harvest? You celebrate! Maybe that's why we have so many great family-friendly fall festivals and special events in September and October. Here's a quick run-down of some of our favorite fall festivals and major events happening in Morgan County so you can get them on your family's seasonal calendar.  

Keep an eye on our full event calendar for additional events as we are always adding new information on upcoming things to do in the area. In addition, check out our Fall Fun page for info on fall themed attractions and things to do throughout the county!
