Fall Festival in Virginia at Cox Farm
If you follow, we recently moved from Florida to the Virginia suburbs of DC. In our past, pumpkins were mostly important and found at a local corner church. Fall Festivals were events held in school, usually with a trunk or treat or sack race involved, visiting Cox Farms, my whole perception changed.
Cox Farms is DC area’s most famous fall festival. The festival is open daily September 26-November 3 and will wrap up with Pumpkin Madness Weekend November 7-8. I had a chance to talk with Arron Cox and he informed me that the festival began in the mid 80s and exploded in the 90s and has remained strong until today. My husband and I were trying our best to compare it to anything we have ever been to before and we were unable. The best way to describe it (and still it does not do it justice) is a glorified county fair or a 1950s Disney World.
I am not sure what was my favorite during our visit. Everything was so fun. The girls did rope swings, slid down dozens of slides, we gem mining, saw and pet many animals, and so much more. There are hayrides, a corn maze, a new Imaginature Trail, entertainment, food, and plenty of decorations and excitement. Cox Farm also gives everyone one a free apple and cider for snack. On the way out, grab a free pumpkin or shop the store for larger pumpkins, fruit, handmade gifts, jams and more!
