Luckily, there are plenty of fall festivities around Midlothian.

Chesterfield Berry Farm

The Chesterfield Berry Farm is a local favorite of Midlothian dwellers. Here you’ll find your one-stop-shop for all things fall! A hayride to a pumpkin patch, an inflatable slide, an obstacle course, mazes, and more — there is plenty to do at the Berry Farm. You can purchase a General Fall Fun Pass on Thursday through Sunday or an Ultimate Fall Fun Pass on Saturdays and Sundays only. October 23rd and 24th is a fall festival weekend, and on October 30th and 31st, there will be trick or treating and costume contests! The Chesterfield Berry Farm has a little bit for everyone, so be sure to schedule your visit.

Dorey Park Farmers Market Fall Festival

The Dorey Park Farmers Market is a community farmers market in Henrico. On October 30th, they’ll be celebrating the last day of the market season with a Fall Festival! In addition to their usual vendors, offering fresh flowers, produce, baked goods, and more, they’ll also provide fun fall attractions. Hop on a hayride, pick your own pumpkin at the pumpkin patch, and enjoy some live music by Kevin Davis and BanCaribe. Additionally, kids will love face painting, crafts, and of course, a petting zoo! Pick up some fresh produce while getting into the fall spirit.

Harvestfest at Lewis Ginter

Head to Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens on October 23rd or 24th for Harvestfest! Not only can you explore the beautiful fall colors throughout the grounds, but there will also be live music on both days. Additionally, there will be food, adult beverages, and family-friendly activities! Build a fairy house or enter the pumpkin carving contest. Or, simply grab a drink and enjoy the music performed by Ken Kellner Trio, Hazeltone, and Gypsy Roots Jazz Duo. Tickets for Harvestfest are included in regular garden admission.

Cinema By the Creek at Hardywood West Creek

What better way to celebrate spooky season than by watching a classic Halloween movie like Hocus Pocus? While you could certainly watch it from your couch at home, wouldn’t it be a bit more fun to do so outside with a Hardywood brew in your hand? Head to Hardywood West Creek on October 29th from 7 pm to 9 pm and enjoy an outdoor showing of Hocus Pocus! This event is free and family-friendly. Bring some blankets to lounge on, and enjoy food from the Salt & Forge food truck.

Carter Mountain Orchard

While Carter Mountain Orchard is about an hour up the road from Center West in Charlottesville, many people are willing to make the trek to experience all it has to offer. In addition to a day spent apple picking on the rolling hills, you can enjoy their famous apple cider donuts and a tasty Bold Rock Cider from the Bold Rock Tap Room. After you select your apples, enjoy the view while indulging in some of their delicious treats like apple pie, ice cream, and more. Be sure to purchase your tickets ahead of time!

Whether you’re in the mood to watch a classic Halloween flick, head to a good old-fashioned fall festival, or make the trip to the apple orchard, there are plenty of fall festivities around Midlothian. Gather up your friends, and make a plan to welcome the fall season!
