things to do in the fall and for halloween
Enjoy the Fall season and Halloween in Kenosha! Fall festivals and Oktoberfest events begin in early September in the Kenosha Area. That’s followed by Halloween event season. During the fall harvest, you can expect to find lots of fresh produce and fall-themed decorations from vendors at our Saturday Farmers Markets: Kenosha HarborMarket and Kenosha Public Market. We have recommendations for leaf peeping spots as well!
While it’s hard to predict when the fall colors will peak in any given year, mid to late October is typically a great time to enjoy the show of many colors, courtesy of Mother Nature.
