So when the temperatures start to drop and the days grow shorter, light up your day at one of these fun fall festivals in and around Columbus.

    1. Columbus Fall Brew Festival

    The Columbus Fall Brew Festival happens in early October. Head to Huntington Park, where you can sample over 150 types of beers from over 50 local and regional breweries. There’s also a DJ, lawn games, and food vendors on site. General and early admission tickets are available for this 21-years-and-over event; early admission ticket holders get the first taste of rare specialty beers.

    2. Zombiezi Bay

    Zoombezi Bay in Powell, OH, transforms into ZOMBIEzi Bay, Central Ohio’s horror theme park, as the warm summer air gives way to a crisp fall breeze. For several weekends leading up to Halloween, Zoombezi Bay in Powell, OH, transforms into ZOMBIEzi Bay Horror Park. With multiple haunted houses, adventure rides, and scare zones, it’s sure to be a frightful night. ZOMBIEzi Bay is open to those ages 13 and older.

    3. Columbus Italian Festival

    In early October, the Columbus Italian Festival brings all things Italy to life. This annual festival has been feeding Ohioans since 1980. You’re sure to have una bella errata (a beautiful evening) when the festival starts with dinner and dancing. On subsequent days, you can enjoy parades, bocce ball competitions, and more.

    4. Mac & Cheese Festival

    Every year, the Mac & Cheese Festival welcomes people of all ages to enjoy their favorite comfort food. But this isn’t your typical mac & cheese from a box; chefs around Columbus, OH,  craft this cheesy pasta. This fun, family-focused festival occurs in early October at the Yard in Easton Town Center. Along with delicious dining options, you can also enjoy live music, raffles, and kid zones. Benefits support cancer research and patients, making this an extra feel-good event.

    5. Ohio Renaissance Festival

    Take a short drive out of the city and go back in time — to the Renaissance. Starting Labor Day weekend, history and fantasy come together at the Ohio Renaissance Festival in Waynesville, OH. Every weekend has a theme, so be prepared to encounter Vikings, pirates, or Scottish highland dancers. And no matter what day you go, you can choose from more than 100 shows, from fire jugglers to full armored jousting.

    6. Freeman’s Farm Fall Market and Weekends

    About 25 minutes from Columbus, Freeman’s Farm offers a bounty of festive activities through the fall. Pack up the kids and head to nearby Galena, OH, for hayrides, a petting zoo, kettle corn, and roasting hotdogs over an open fire.
