Autumn is in full swing in Auburn, and there are several activities to enjoy in Auburn and surrounding areas.
Sleepy Hollow Haunted Farm
First, located a few miles from the city of Auburn, Sleepy Hollow Haunted Farm features a corn maze, haunted house, haunted hayride, paintball and an escape room. During the entire month of October, there are a variety of options for those who like scarier attractions and those who want tamer activities. Tickets for individual attractions are $13. Tickets for the corn maze, haunted house and haunted hayride are $30 and can be purchased at the farm.
Farmer in the Dell pumpkin patch
Additionally, an afternoon at the Farmer in the Dell pumpkin patch satisfies anyone looking for a true fall experience. Located off Wire Road, the pumpkin patch features autumn photo opportunities, farm animals to feed, a crop maze and local raw honey for sale. Admission to the farm is only $2 and pumpkins start at only $3. Farmer in the Dell pumpkin patch was named as one of the “Top 25 Pumpkin Patches You Need to Visit This Fall.”
Oktoberfest at the Hotel at Auburn University
Finally, the Hotel at Auburn University hosts an annual Oktoberfest, Auburn’s only craft beer festival. The festival features German food, beers from breweries across the U.S., German wines and live entertainment. Oktoberfest features beers from not only Alabama but also breweries from California, Georgia, New York, Texas, Belgium and Scotland. German snacks like bratwurst and pretzels are also available to purchase, as well as German wines. Also, the event takes place every year in late October.
