It's Alive at Peabody Essex Museum

Fall is here! That means a lot of things… Pumpkin spice everything, leaf-peepers, the colors changing, raking leaves, and so much more. What are the best ways to celebrate fall in NH? You may be thinking fairs and festivals, and you wouldn’t be wrong. NH’s Deerfield Fair runs Sept. 28th to Oct. 1st this year (and is over as of publishing this), but if you missed the Deerfield Fair, there’s still plenty you can do.

Topsfield Fair
September 29th, 2017 to October 9th, 2017

Topsfield Fair Logo

One of my favorite fairs ever! It’s in Topsfield, Massachusetts, but it’s a fun ride down with lots of things to do when you get there. From traditional fair things such as largest pumpkins, honey bees, livestock, fair food (mmm fried dough), rides, and more, there are also all kinds of other things specific to only the Topsfield fair. This includes a dog show with tricks! Check out their daily schedules on their website for more information.

NH Pumpkin Festival
October 13th, 2017 to October 14th, 2017

Jack o Lantern

This community-hosted family friendly event formerly known as the Keene Pumpkin Festival is a great thing to do at night from 4 PM to 8 PM either day.
