Updated Sept. 30, 2022, at 12:45 p.m.: Perkasie Borough made the difficult decision to cancel the Fall Festival scheduled for noon, Sunday Oct. 2. In a social media post the borough shared, "The weather forecast is for a steady rain on Sunday with a high of 50. With that forecast we anticipate a very light turnout and a miserable day outside. There is no raindate for this event."
Perkasie’s annual Fall Festival will take place from noon – 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2, in both the town center, and in Menlo Park.
The event sites are linked by free bus rides, or visitors can take the short walk between the two locations.
The theme of this year’s event is “All Things Corn.” Visitors are invited to enjoy this favorite fall decoration and flavor from local growers, bakers and from Perkasie’s downtown eateries.
The Pennridge Green Jackets and RAMs Cheer teams and a local acrobatic school, AcroDynamics, will perform in the town center, and the Pennridge Softball Team will bring out a dunk tank.
Attendees can win prizes downtown in the pie-eating contests or the popular corn hole tournament (pre-registration encouraged). New this year, a huge inflatable corn maze is open in the town center. Live music, tractor rides, a fire truck, outdoor games, a huge raffle, pumpkin decorating, entertainers and a massive vendor fair and food court round out Perkasie’s downtown fun.
Families will also find lots of free fun at Menlo Park, including a petting zoo, balloon twisting, face painting, and pony rides (small fee). Free fall-themed crafts are under one park pavilion, and scarecrow decorating is under the other. Build and enter a scarecrow in this popular contest (one per family please, while supplies last, or bring your own). Judging is at 3:30 p.m. with prizes announced just before 4 p.m.
Perkasie’s historic Carousel is open until 5 p.m. Food options at Menlo Park this year include kettle corn, popcorn, hot dogs at the Carousel and Rita’s Water Ice snack stand offerings.
A full schedule of events and a list of road closures and parking restrictions are available at perkasieborough.org. ADA parking is available at the Menlo Aquatics Center and Borough Hall. Additional event parking is at Pennridge South Middle School, 610 S. 5th St.
