Fall Festivities in an RV

Looking to fill your mind with some foliage? We’ve identified some of the best fall festivities to experience while RVing.

Racing in a Pumpkin Down the River

What if we told you that you could get into a massive pumpkin and use it as a kayak to paddle down the river?

In Stillwater, MN every October they have a pumpkin festival that draws a massive crowd. You’ll find all kinds of fall festivities but the main attraction is the big pumpkin race.

Make sure you visit the Teddy Bear Park just a few blocks away if you have kids.

Eat an Oyster Sandwich

Virginia’s largest oyster festival is located in Urbanna on the Chesapeake Bay. The entire town comes together the throw a MASSIVE festival that has is designed around oysters.

Grab an oyster sandwich or even make friends with an oyster walking down the road while listening to live music. There’s a lot of boondocking available at the festival.

Another option is there’s a number of RV Resorts just down the road where you can have waterfront campsites with good fishing.

Apple Everything

There are many places to go apple picking. But if you’re looking to find unique things like Apple Cotton Candy you might want to head over to Gettysburg in the fall during one of the largest apple festivals in the world.

They have RV Parking available and it gets so packed that they shuttle people in on buses that are constantly running people in and out. Live music and INCREDIBLE food makes this place one of a kind.

Hiking in the Foliage

Fall foliage means hiking trails turn into colorful wonderlands. Find the local foliage report online to know exactly where the foliage is peaking, layer up and head out onto the trail.

Keep in mind different areas may vary greatly so plan your trips accordingly. We’ve even seen groups of people calling themselves “Foliage Followers”.

Garlic Festival

The Garlic capital of the world is in Gilroy, CA. It’s also a great spot for RVers to take day trips to The Redwoods, the ocean to catch a wave in Santa Cruz, and it’s directly on the wine trail. But for one day a year you won’t want to miss downtown Girloy!

They shut the entire town down for a Halloween festival where you won’t want to be kissing anybody after…

You’ll find an abundance of fresh garlic and to wash it down each of the stops in town has beer for you to drink on this giant beer crawl downtown.
