Fall often feels like a fresh start in the last quarter of the year. The leaves change, the weather gets crisp, and we trade our summer guilt for no-shame autumn—a time when there's no judgment for spending an entire day indoors. Yet, there are still fun fall activities that will have you rushing out the door. 


If you're visiting Ottawa this October, get into the vibrant, invigorating, and spooky autumn season with these upcoming events!



The Pumpkinferno is an award-winning display of over 7,000 beautiful hand-crafted pumpkin carvings. On select days from September 27-October 27, walk and admire a path lit with artistic pumpkins set to a 19th-century backdrop. Get a ticket for your family and friends today!


Haunting Season at Saunders Farm

Every fall, Saunders Farm transforms into the largest fall festival in the region—running now for 28 years! Experience over 40 activities ranging from wildly fun to wildly scary, such as corn mazes, a haunted hayride, a barn of terror and much more. 


After the sun sets the festival transforms into Fright Fest, a truly chilling evening meant only for those who can handle a scare. Over 1 million guests seek out the thrill and visit the farm each season. Check out the festival schedule and buy your tickets now!


Fall Rhapsody

Once you walk through Ottawa's spectacular display of vibrant red, orange, and yellow leaves, you'll have yourself wondering, "Is this the real life, or is this just fantasy?" Fall Rhapsody tracks the color meter of the bushes and forests in the downtown core, Gatineau, and Greenbelt. Discover Canada's capital city in all of its stunning autumnal glory and explore the hot spots for a stroll, hike or picnic. Check out the suggested viewpoints and map out a trail!


After enjoying a day frolicking in a leaf pile or screaming during a haunted hayride, fall into a comfortable bed at the Best Western Ottawa City Centre—the perfect hotel at the ideal location and the BEST rate in Ottawa. Hurry and book your stay today!
