Last updated: 1/1/2019

Fall is right around the corner! The air is starting to get a little crisp in the morning and it has me dreaming of everything we'll be doing this fall. Here's your guide to all things fall and Halloween in Utah in 2020.

Picture of Chalk the block
1. Chalk the Block at the Riverwoods in Provo September 14-16th. There are a bunch of artists here who do chalk art in a parking spot. It's amazing to see how talented they are and what they come up with for their design.
Oktoberfest in Utah

2. Oktoberfest at Snowbird. Open Saturdays and Sundays August 17-October 20 noon-6pm. Admission is free, but parking is $5 per car. Oktoberfest has the best kettle corn, so make sure to grab a bag while you're there. 
Alpine Slides Park City

3. Alpine Slides in Park City. This costs $22 per adult and $12 per child. 

4. Buy Apple Cider from Allred Orchards in Provo. They also have apples and other fresh produce you can buy.

5. Visit the Pumpkin Patch. There are tons of these in the area, but our favorites are Mabey Pumpkin Patch 10090 S 1000 W, South Jordan, UT 84095 and Kuwahara's 12153 S 700 W, Draper, UT. See pictures from when we went there here.

6. Gardner Village Witchfest mid-September through October. It is so much fun to walk around here and see all the unique Halloween decorations they have.

Cornbellys in Lehi Utah
Every year we get a picture in this big rocking chair at Cornbelly's!

7. Cornbelly's September 27-November 2. This is probably our favorite thing to do in October! We love the corn maze here and the huge rocking chair. We get a picture in it every year.

8. Sundance Ski Lift Full Moon Ride- August 16, 17, September 12, 13, 14, and October 11, 12. Bring lots of blankets and dress warm!

9. Sundance Ski Lift Halloween Ride- October 18-31, closed Sundays. We've done both the full moon ride and the Halloween ride. They're both fun! For the Halloween ones they have people doing skits below you that you watch along the way. Like I said for the full moon ride, bring blankets and dress very warm!

10. Central Utah Gardens Pumpkin Walk. There's not a ton to do here, so it's a pretty quick activity. It's fun to walk around and see all the carved pumpkins they have. Some of them are so intricate. This is a good activity for kids.

Cascade springs

11. Drive the Alpine Loop and stop at Cascade Springs. The colors of the leaves on this drive are unreal! You'll see every shade of red, orange, yellow, and green. We always stop at Cascade Springs to walk around. 

12. Go apple picking and bake a pie with the apples. If you're not into baking, then go get an apple pie from Costco. They're even vegan! We pick apples at Riley's U-Pick Farm in American Fork.

Color me mine pumpkins

13. Paint Halloween decorations at Color Me Mine. One year we painted some Jack-o-lanterns and they're some of our favorite Halloween decorations we have.

14. Go to a Haunted House. Nightmare on 13th is open for some of September and all of October. There are plenty of other haunted houses too.

15. The Strangling Bros Haunted Circus. I'm way too scared to go to anything like this, but I know some people love it. They're located in American Fork and are open for dates from September to the beginning of November.

16. Swiss Days August 30 and 31. This is a fun little festival to walk around and shop at in Midway.

17. Boo at the Zoo at the Hogle Zoo

18. Pumpkin Nights. We haven't been to this before, but can't wait to go this year! 

What will you be doing this fall in Utah? I hope you all have a fun fall and a spooky October!
