To properly celebrate fall in NEPA, you have to get outside.
There is no Shortage of Festivals & Events Going on All Season in Northeastern Pennsylvania
From campfires and corn mazes to pumpkins and pig races.
The whole family can get their fall fix at Roba Family Farms. You can reserve a campfire site and fill it with food and friends or just bring the kids and explore the amazing attractions.
Get lost in a giant corn maze, climb the massive hay fort or fire away with the apple cannons. When it’s time for a break, settle in for the hillbilly pig races or take a relaxing wagon ride. There is so much to do, you’ll barely have enough energy to carry out your big old pumpkin.
It’s a short season at Roba’s, so don’t miss it. Their opening day is scheduled for Friday, September 14. And if you’re looking for more family fun this season, be sure to check out these other kid-friendly events.
Seasons Change, but our Love for Food Remains the Same
Cool fall evenings are ideal for a hot cup of soup, a warm drink and the company of friends.
Luckily there are plenty of fall food events lined up over the next few months. And one of those events that you absolutely cannot miss is the 24th Annual Lebanese Heritage Festival in Scranton.
Every fall, Saint Ann Maronite Church on Price Street offers you the opportunity to discover the flavors of the Mediterranean. With delicious dishes like baked kibbeh, tabbouleh, meat pies and spinach pies (a personal favorite), it’s impossible to leave this festival hungry. Just be sure to save room for a hot Turkish coffee and some traditional baklava, namoura and date cookies.
Still hungry? Well that’s not the only food-centric festival going on this season. Make time for a few of these appetizing events.
Let the Colors and the Spirit of the Season Inspire You
Something about autumn in NEPA seems to awaken the artistic sensibilities.
Maybe it’s the vibrant yellows and reds in the foliage or the shift in mindset from carefree, summer fun to “winter is coming.”
We celebrate the arts every fall with concerts, live theater, film festivals and art shows. And perhaps no where is the creative spirit more alive than at the Scranton Fringe Festival. This annual gathering brings together performance artists of all genres to share their talent, dazzle audiences and inspire open minds.
The Fringe Festival takes place over the last week in September at various downtown venues. Catch a show. Support local art and have fun.
A Little Art & Culture Never Hurt Anyone:
And Here's a Little Something for the Grown-Ups
This time of year, wineries and breweries try to capitalize on the season with fall-inspired beers and wines.
And if they’re going to take the time to make them, the least we can do is drink them.
It’s not just a happy coincidence. They know that there is something special about standing outside by a firepit with a cold beer or glass of wine and a few friends. Combine that feeling with some delicious eats, a little live music and you have yourself a proper NEPA Oktoberfest (which always takes place in September, but that’s beside the point).
Admit it, these are all the things that make you happy.
