Ultimate Guide to Fall Festivals around Boston

By: - Tuesday, Oct 6, 2015 - 5:30pm

Fall festival season, coming in hot cold and rainy. Break out your fall jacket (check the pockets for stray bills — a fiver, score!) and come out to celebrate the harvest, local music, film, food, beer and cider, and lots more. Really just any excuse to gather together and be festive with your neighbors a few more times before we stay home and hate each other all winter.
