Fall Harvest

Many of the orchards and farms of Kent Harvest Trails and Fruit Ridge Market offer corn mazes, hayrides and fun kids activities in addition to just-picked fall produce.

Robinette's Apple Haus teams up with John Ball Zoo for a corn maze inspired by the zoo's new Tigers of the Forest Realm exhibit. Robinette's also offers hayrides and a giant jumping pillow as well as just-picked apples, fresh-squeezed apple cider and delicious baked goods.

Fall Colors

Take a self-guided Fall Color Tour that runs through lush stands of forest, bustling family farms and charming covered bridges. Or follow our Scenic Beauty route that starts and ends downtown. Either way, bring your camera!

Bike, hike or blade your way through paved trails with incredible views of changing colors.

Fall Food & Drink

Founders Brewing Company, recognized as one of the world's best craft breweries, has announced four new fall releases, including Harvest Ale, a limited-edition wet-hopped ale that celebrates the hop harvest. Download the Beer City Ale Trail tour map, which includes Founders and 30+ more local breweries.

Taste how local farm-to-fork restaurants are incorporating just-harvested fall fruits and vegetables into their menus.

Check out the fall-themed flavors at Furniture City Creamery, a "microcreamery" specializing in unique, handcrafted ice cream.
