Yorktown Fall Festival- Family Fun Event!
Oct 9, 2021
8 a.m. – 3 p.m.
It’s become a community tradition to help kick off a season of cooler weather, changing leaves, and outdoor fun for the whole family.
During this special farmers market at the beautiful Historic Yorktown waterfront—shop more than 40 different vendors and artists selling seasonal favorites like pumpkins, mums, autumn-inspired art, kettle corn, and caramel apples. Enjoy free activities for kids of all ages, including the annual hay maze, the return of hay rides, a pumpkin painting craft, and fun photo opportunities. There will also be a petting zoo featuring miniature animals, and our professional pumpkin carver is returning to do a live demo. You can also expect live music, including a performance by the Fifes & Drums of York Town at 9 a.m.
Don’t miss our “Guess the Weight of the Giant Pumpkin” game with a pumpkin donated by Allen’s Farm & Pumpkinville. Prizes are donated by market vendors and artists.
Come see what makes us an award-winning market and one of the favorites on the Peninsula!
