Fall is officially here and if you’re like me, you’re looking to take advantage of all that the season has to offer. Here is a round up of some great events and places to visit this fall.
New York City Wine & Food Festival: Taking place in multiple venues throughout NYC the weekend of October 11th -14th this food and wine festival is a must see. You can choose from large events featuring television personalities like Giada DeLaurentis to intimate dinners at restaurants like Café Boulud. The festival raises money for Food Bank New York City so you can feel good while you are out enjoying delicious food.
The New York Coffee Festival: From October 12-14th this festival will be held at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea. This event is about sipping and tasting the best coffee around. It is a mix of coffee professionals, coffee aficionados and tired people looking for a pick-me-up! I attended this event a few years ago and have to tell you there are also loads of delicious sweets to pair with the abundance of coffee.
Pumpkin Patch at Demarest Farms: My children love picking out the perfect pumpkin to decorate ahead of Halloween and Demarest Farms makes it super fun. There is a tractor ride out to the pumpkin patch where you’ll also find some farm animals, apple cider, apple cider donuts and some play structures for the kids. You can purchase your tickets online to save time when you get to the farm!
Apple Picking at Ochs Orchard: This Orchard is the perfect place for a quick getaway from NYC and finding delicious apples. Pick Your Own Apples or just go and enjoy the farm life and get your apples from their market. The market is full of fresh produce and some really delicious small batch jams, jellies and food products. Right up our alley!
Whether you head out to one of these destinations or choose to spend your fall afternoons watching football on tv or maybe playing football in the park, I hope you’ll enjoy what this amazing season has to offer indoors and outdoors.
