Celebrate the Final Days of Fall with These Fun NJ Festivities

Fall in New Jersey, especially Middlesex County, is such a wonderful, picturesque and exciting season. Between the ever-changing leaves, fresh autumnal produce, crisp weather and festive activities and events, it’s no wonder why people travel from surrounding townships and nearby states to enjoy everything the Garden State has to offer. If you’re fortunate enough to be a resident of Middlesex County, be sure to take advantage of these five fall events before the season is over!


1.    Pick your own pumpkins

While many farms only open their fall services to the public throughout the months of September and October, the Giamarese family wants residents of Middlesex County to enjoy their seasonal festivities – primarily pumpkin picking – in November, too. Spanning thirty-five acres in East Brunswick, Giamarese Farm and Orchards invites residents to visit their friendly establishment for the beautiful fall views and fall activities you can enjoy at any age. Their pumpkin picking is super popular this time of year, but you can also pick fresh greens until December!


2.    Take a “Cocoa 101” class

Fall weather brings crisp, fresh air to New Jersey – the perfect weather to spend an intimate, cozy night in (or out!) with a friend, partner or family member. 2 Chicks with Chocolate in Metuchen is the perfect place to spend a fall evening in Middlesex County. They offer classes like Cocoa 101: How to pair wine, chocolate and roll your very own truffles. Each student gets three educational wine chocolate and pairings, and is advised to show up promptly!


3.    Get fresh autumnal produce

Squash, gourds, pumpkins, corn, apples…the list of seasonal fall produce goes on and on. These fall favorites are only in its prime for a couple more weeks until December hits. Highland Park Farmer’s Market is celebrating its 20th annual season this year, and is open every Friday throughout November. Highlighting Highland Park’s shops, restaurants, farmers and other local gems, visitors and town residents alike are welcomed to check out the last of the fall finds there this month.


4.    Celebrate Thanksgiving Eve

Thanksgiving Eve is quite arguably one of the best nights out for anyone over the age of 21, especially in Middlesex County. Harvest Moon Brewery and Cafe in East Brunswick brews its very own ales, and stouts. Be sure to try their Black O’Lantern Pumpkin Stout – a popular drink enjoyed by locals this time of year. The Fox and Hound in Edison is also a hot spot the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving. The chain sports bar offers a spacious indoor area, diverse menu and a ton of drinks to satisfy any palette.


5.    Learn about fall cocktails

Heirloom Kitchen in Middlesex County’s Old Bridge Township is hosting their Fall Harvest cocktail class in early November. Director of Libations of Barrio Costero and Heirloom Kitchen’s very own Jamie Didge will teach students about the art of mixology, from how to mix your own craft cocktails at home to the right way you should order a drink you’ll really like in a bar. The Fall Harvest cocktail class includes an overview on making fall-inspired simple syrups for any fall cocktail, technique instruction and ultimately teaches you how to stock your bar at home this time of year. Guests can expect a complimentary tasting and snacks!
