 Fall Festivals Louisville

Festivals are a great opportunity for Louisville families to explore different areas of town. So many local communities, businesses, and groups host fall events and more than not, they are free. Enjoy fall fun around Louisville with family and friends.

In 2020, most fall festivals have been canceled. Please be patient as we update this page. We will put CANCELED or CONFIRMED for 2020 and make them bold. If we put nothing, that means we cannot find information and we assume it is canceled. 

Halloween events will be in our Halloween-specific post!
