 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 were canceled. For 2021, some are coming back. Please be patient as we update this page as not all of them have posted their plans. 

Halloween events will be in our Halloween-specific post!
