Fun fall 2022 activities for the family around Dayton, OH

What can we do as a family this fall around Dayton, OH? 

Fall is a great time to connect with family before the holiday season. There are so many fall events around Dayton, OH, that we bet you could find something new to do every weekend if you tried. Below, you can find some of our ideas for how to celebrate autumn in our area. We’d love to see you here at Matt Castrucci Nissan for an oil change. 

Dayton Ohio Fall Festival 

If you’re looking for a free event, all of the activities at the Dayton Fall Festival will qualify. This event takes place on September 17 and includes games, balloon artists, rock walls, hayrides, and many other fall-themed activities for kids of all ages.  

Dayton Art Institute Oktoberfest 2022 

Dayton’s favorite fall festival is taking place from September 23 through 25. If your children are a little older, they’ll appreciate this festival, but even if your kids are young, they might enjoy the celebratory atmosphere and the food. Plus, kids under six years old get in for free. Of course, the adult beverages are only for adults, but you can enjoy those while your kids enjoy the live music and vendors.

Dayton Music Fest 

It’s always worth checking out what’s going on downtown in Dayton. In October, that includes the Dayton Music Fest on October 21 and 22. There’s something for children of all ages downtown, so you can do a little of what they like and a little of what you like while enjoying the live music playing that weekend. 

Tom’s Maze 2022 

During the months of September and October, you can enjoy Tom’s Maze, a difficult corn maze for kids of all ages. If you want to make a day of it, you can also reserve a campfire on site. Other activities include a train ride, photo ops, and much more.
