10 Things to Do this Fall in Cumming GA & Forsyth County

Hands down – Fall is my favorite season. I love the weather, the pumpkin flavored everything, football snacks, and much more! And as we thought about it there are a lot of fun things to do in Forsyth county this Fall. So we have put together a list of 10 Things to Do in Forsyth County this Fall.

Here is our list in no particular order:

1. Go to a High School Football Game:  These games are full of energy and a really fun evening to support our local teams. The tickets are fairly inexpensive and the kids think they’re at a big game. For updated schedules, click here.

2. The Cumming Fair:  Oh how much fun the Fair is! The annual Cumming Country Fair & Festival will be in town in less than a month.  Click here for information on the 2016 Cumming Country Fair!

Kinsey Family Farm

3. Kinsey Family Farm:  The Kinsey Farm is now open for its Fall & Pumpkin Season.  They’ll be open for all their Fall Activities until October 30th.  This is always a must for our family.  Click here for more information.

4. Warbington Farms:  Don’t make the mistake of associating Warbington Farms with strawberry fields only.  They have lots of fun pumpkin activities and this year they’re offering a CORN MAZE too!  Plus fall activities like Pumpkins, Hay Rides, Petting Zoo, Farm Fun, and so much more!  Click here for more information.

5. Fall Festivals:  This season is FULL of festivals at churches, schools, and businesses through Forsyth County.  Our calendar is already packed with lots of events going on but as we get closer, more and more will be added.  Click here to view the Calendar of Events.  And if your church, organization, or business has an event you want to share with the community click here to submit your event.

6. Drive around: This sounds silly but it’s so much fun to simply drive around and check out the leaves. The leaves so beautiful this time of year. This was an idea from our high school student intern and contributing writer, Christina. Read more of her ideas by clicking here. 

7. Haunted Fun:  As we get closer to Halloween there will be plenty of fun Haunted Houses to visit here in Forsyth County. We’ll definitely have a list ready to go as it gets closer.  And again, if your church, organization, or business has an event you want to share with the community click here to submit your event.

8. Pumpkin Picking:  Sure you can pick up a pumpkin almost anywhere, but make it special – try one of the local “pumpkin patches” & help support a local organization, ministry or business.   As the season comes into full swing, pumpkins can be purchased at Kinsey Family Farm, Warbington Farms, and also Cumming First United Methodist Church and Midway United Methodist Church have “patches” in their yards too.

9. Forsyth County Playgrounds:  Personally, I feel that Fall is the best time to be outside. Nice cool breeze, sun shining, it’s not too hot but not too cold.  This Fall we would love for you to enjoy this weather at some of the Forsyth County Parks.  Click here for a listing and for some personal thoughts on some of them too.

10. Fall Fun at Your House: There are plenty of super fun things to do at home this Fall. Rake up the leaves to jump in & play, bake fall treats, make some fun fall crafts with the kids, decorate some pumpkins, camp in your back yard or make a fun fort in the living room.  Just spend time together and enjoy one another! Check out our All Things Autumn Pinterest Board by clicking here. Need snack ideas for days spent watching football? Here’s some for you!

BONUS IDEA: Travel just a little further north for some great Apple Picking!  Click here for apple u-pick farms near Forsyth County.

ANOTHER BONUS IDEA: Find 40+ things to do this Fall all over Georgia from our friends at 365 Atlanta Family. Click here

Strawberry Picking in Forsyth County at Warbington Farms 2016

Warbington Farms_Strawberries

Strawberry Picking in Forsyth County at Warbington Farms 2016

Oh boy!  It’s strawberry picking time in Forsyth County!  And lucky for us – Warbington Farms is ready for picking!!  I absolutely LOVE fresh strawberries so this time of year always makes me happy.

Warbington Farms is a U-Pick farm. If you’re on a time crunch or just don’t feel like picking your own, you can also purchase previously picked strawberries (when available) for an extra surcharge.

While you’re there, let the kids take advantage of some Farm Fun including hay rides, inflatable slide & petting zoo.  Activities and fees vary depending on the day.

Personal Tips:

1. It’s never a bad idea to call ahead or check their Facebook page to make sure they still have plenty to u-pick … especially if you’re driving from a big distance.  Farming isn’t an exact science after all!
2. Check out their other farm produce while you’re there – In the past, I have snagged some farm-raised eggs for a great price!
3.  Buy a lot – they freeze great!
4.  And then be ready for all those strawberries!  You might want some new recipes, check out our “Berry Recipe” Board on Pinterest for a few ideas.
