Fall in Love with Cleveland and Northeast Ohio this Autumn

Fall in Love with Cleveland and Northeast Ohio this Autumn #eatplaylivecle

I love fall so much! It's my favorite season and Northeast Ohio has so much to offer! 

Between the trees changing and fall festivals, there is something for everyone and at any price point.

Besides the weekly list, here are a few not to miss events this autumn in the Greater Cleveland and Northeast Ohio area.

St. Mary Magdalene's 7th annual European Festival in Fairview Park, Ohio

St. Mary Magdalene European Festival

Besides the entertainment, St. Mary's also has pierogis paprikash, goulash, stuffed cabbage, kielbasa & kraut, potato pancakes, sauerkraut balls and cabbage & noodles! I can feel my butt getting bigger.

Chalk Fest at the Cleveland Museum of Art 

September 17 - 18

This is one of our favorites to kick-off the season of Fall festivals!

If you are nervous about chalking on the sidewalk, there is a workshop the weekend before but you can always just browse.

Halloweekends at Cedar Point 

Halloween at Cedar Point! What could be better - roller coaster and zombies! During the day, it's pretty kid friendly and last year they even had a trick or treat station. Take a look at our last visit!

Ingenuity Festival

September 23-25

We've been to Ingenuity Festival when it started under the Detroit-Superior Bridge. Followed it to the warehouses by the Browns Stadium and braved the gale forced winds of North Coast harbor. They have moved again!

No longer in the downtown area, Ingenuity moved to the Saint Clair-Superior neighborhood at the corner of E 53rd and Hamilton Avenue.

Pumpkins and Corn Maze at Pickering Farms
