Throw a Fall Festival in Your Own Backyard!

Brittany AndersonContributor

Hay bales, pumpkins, and gourds galore! Get everyone in the fall mood when you bring your favorite fall festival activities to your own backyard - the kids will love it! Keep reading for our top vendors to book, food & drink ideas, and tips for decor & extra fun activities. 


This is the easy part! With GigKids, we have plenty of vendors available for booking to really make this party feel like you’re at a fall festival. Here are our top 5 suggestions:


Food & Drinks

Have a chili cook off! Because what’s better than having various types of chili available on a cool fall day? Have guests make & bring their favorite recipe, have an unofficial judge, and award some prizes. (This is some additional fun for the adults!). Don’t forget some sides of sweet potatoes, turkey sandwiches,  and of course, pumpkin flavored everything!


Other Activities & Decor

  • Pumpkin painting and carving (doubles as an activity & then decor!)
  • Yard games like corn hole, jenga, and even a DIY ring toss 
  • For decor: use all your favorite fall colors (oranges, yellows, reds) and incorporate hay bales, pumpkins, gourds, and of course your own natural leaves from the trees in your yard!
