Family-Friendly Fall Activities in The Woodlands (2023)

Fall is on the horizon, and it’s easy to say that everyone is excited for the season. After blistering heat waves and summer vacations, the community is ready to pull out their sweaters and enjoy the cool breeze. Many dive into fall through pumpkin-flavored drinks or decorating their house for halloween, but what activities are in store for the whole family to enjoy? The Woodlands is always prepared to show their residents and visitors a great time, so get ready to add a few fall events to your calendar.


What better way to jump into the fall festivities than attending a farmer’s market? The Grogans Mill farmer’s market will take place on October 7th, between the hours of 9am-1pm. Take the whole family to the market to check out local goods, foods, and vendors. Another great way to get into the spirit would be to attend a fall festival. The Creekside Park West Fall Festival will take place between the hours of 11am-3pm, featuring a free pumpkin patch, live DJ, rock wall climbing, and fun family games! Have a blast and secure fall photos of little ones in the pumpkin patch, you won’t want to miss it!

Spooky Events

Care to enjoy a spooky symphony with the whole family? The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion will be hosting a night of “Hocus Pocus Pops”, October 20th, inviting all ages to come listen to the ghoulish tunes of the Houston Symphony. It is encouraged to dress up in costumes for a chance to walk the stage and ride the “Great Pumpkin Express”. This event will last between the hours of 7:30-11:30 pm. If you feel concerned about trick-or-treating on a week night this year, the Tandem Trick or Treat event might be perfect for your littles. Between the hours of 9am-10am, venture over to the Riva Row boat house to trick-or-treat on the water! Paddle a tandem kayak around the lower Waterway to collect treats from costumed characters. Costumes are encouraged!

It’s no surprise that many people favor the fall months, as the events are plentiful and fun-packed! Don’t miss out on these activities and the memories that will be made. Looking for childcare in The Woodlands, Texas? Interested in learning more? Visit our programs page or contact us today!
