A big city with a small town feel like Louisville, Kentucky, can be extra fun in the fall, especially with a variety of fun, family-friendly fall activities to enjoy. For families in the area looking to make some fall memories with your children, here’s The Gardner School’s list of top Louisville-area fall activities you won’t want to miss.

Fall Festival at Foxhollow Farm

Foxhollow Farm’s Fall Festival has grown from a small party to the premier fall event in Oldham County. Welcoming more than 10,000 friends and neighbors in the fall, Foxhollow Farm uses its proceeds to benefit Dare to Care Food Bank and Foxhollow Farm’s Outreach Program. Families can enjoy hayrides, a corn maze, pony rides, arts and crafts, and so much more.
