6 Toronto Fall Family Fun Activities To Do In 2020

Fall Family Fun in Toronto

Can you believe it’s already October? Fall is a very beautiful but short-lived season. But after hot, humid summers we always welcome Fall with open arms. What’s there not to love about this season, other than back to school and colds and runny noses! The cooler temperatures, Fall colours, Thanksgiving, Pumpkin Spice lattes and Halloween are some Fall favourites. Are you looking for some Fall family fun activities that can be enjoyed by everyone?

While this year has been quite a bizarre year, you can still enjoy some of the local Fall family fun activities, with restrictions of course. Please check before you decide to head out to any of the attractions. And if you decide to visit any of these local businesses or attractions please make sure you are safely doing so. 

This is a list of ideas for some Fall family fun in Toronto for 2020.

Head to an orchard for some apple picking and Fall family fun!

Apple picking is no doubt a very popular Fall activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family. The apple picking season starts in September and runs through to about mid October, depending on the varieties. Many farms will have already picked apples that you can buy from their farm store. But where’s the fun in that? Jump on the tractor and head into the orchards to pick your own apples. 

Applewood Farm in Stouffville

This farm is said to be one of the first pick-your- own farms in Ontario. Your admission of $10 per person will give you a tractor ride to the back of the orchard to pick your own apples, a corn maze and a pumpkin patch. Each person entering also gets to take home a free pumpkin or squash.

Pingles Farm Market in Hampton

From Honey Crisp, Royal Gala and Cortland, Pingles Farm Market offers many varieties of apples for you to pick. Check their website for what is available and to purchase your tickets in advance. You can also enjoy some delicious baked goods as well as other fun activities. 

Chudleigh’s in Halton Hills

With 60 acres and 22 varieties of apples, this is a popular farm among many families in the Halton Hills area. You will need to pick your time slot and purchase your tickets in advance. With your admission you can enjoy a play area, farm animals and a nature trail. 

Visit a pumpkin patch to pick the perfect pumpkin

Any of the farms you visit for apple picking will likely have a pumpkin patch as well. It is always fun for the kids to pick the perfect pumpkin, whether it’s for carving, baking or decorating. Here are some popular farms to pick your own pumpkin.

Downey Farm Market in Caledon

As with many events, their Pumpkinfest has been cancelled for this year. But not to worry, they still have lots of pumpkins in different shapes and sizes outside of their farm store. So head over to pick your pumpkin and you could also spend your day exploring the Farmyard play area. 

Andrew’s Farm Market in Milton

Head over to Andrew’s Farm Market to pick-your-own pumpkins, wagon rides, corn mazes and playgrounds. They are open daily from 10am to 5pm, but please check before heading out to make sure nothing has changed.

Reesor’s Farm Market in Markham

During the month of October head over to Reesor’s Farm market where you can find hundreds of pumpkins waiting to be picked by you. You can also enjoy their challenging corn maze and some fresh fruit and vegetables and delicious baked goods.

Marvel in the beautiful Fall colours

What makes Fall the most beautiful season? The change in foliage makes for some stunning scenery in the city. While the Fall colours are stunning as you go further out of the city, you really don’t have to travel far to see the leaves turn. Trinity Bellwoods park, Edward Gardens and Sunnybrook park are some spots within the city where you can go to take in the beauty of the Fall colours. 
If you plan on venturing out of the city you can check out Ontario Parks’ Fall colour report to see the progress for each region.

Pumpkins After Dark – A great Fall family fun Activity!

Do you love jack-o-lanterns? If you do then Pumpkins After Dark is the place to visit. It is a 25km drive-through tour of intricately carved and lit-up jack-o-lanterns. Located at the County Heritage Park in Milton, this is a fun socially-distanced activity for the whole family. Visit their website to reserve your tickets online.

Halloween Night of Lights

Love Halloween? Here is another fun and exciting drive through event that is being held at Improve Canada in Vaughan. Get your tickets online and experience a spectacular display of lights. Enjoy over 700,000 LED lights creating animated and synchronized displays that move to the sounds of your favourite Halloween music.

Haunted Hollows Scream Park

For some of us Halloween is not all about fairies and unicorns. If you enjoy the thrills of haunted houses, then this scream park is for you. Located in East Gwillimbury, this is 1.5 acres of spooky fun. With over 30 individual scenes and live actors, this is a haunted walk-through that will make you scream with fright. And not to worry there are precautions being put into place to make sure you can safely enjoy the event. Make sure you get your tickets early so you don’t miss out!
