ATTENTION: This list is from October 2011. For the detailed 2012 list go here or check my LOCAL: Beaver County, PA page for a “quick list” of all events.

If you’re looking for a place to have some fall family fun in Beaver County, PA this October…you’ve come to the right place! Fall, autumn, harvest, and Halloween festivals, fairs, celebrations, craft shows, parades, and trick-or-treat in Western PA’s greater Pittsburgh area. Who knew there was so much to do in Beaver County?!

I’ve also added a few festivals and events that are happening in Western, PA but they’re outside of Beaver County. They might be worth the drive!

*New events that have been added since the original post on 9/30 will be in red text until the event is over. This should make it easy to scroll down the list to find new events.

Bookmark this link as I’ll be adding more events to the list as information becomes available. Continue to check my blog (subscribe here) as I’ll be posting information about pumpkin patches in the Pittsburgh area.

Have you attended one of the events listed here? Please tell us about your experience in the comments section. Feel free to email pictures if you would like them featured on the blog. I hope your family has a fantastically fun-filled fall! 🙂
