-Tampa Bay’s Best Fall Events for Fun-

Tampa Bay’s fall events are gearing up around Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco Counties. Our average temperatures stay in the 70s or low 80s, enticing locals of all ages to step out from the comforts of our homes for fall festivities and fun activities.

Wonderfully, our region features sporting events, festivals, and seasonal attractions. It was not hard for our Florida real estate team to put together a list of Tampa Bay’s best fall events and things to do.

4 Fun Things to Do During Fall in Florida

  1. Tampa Bay Sports: The Tampa Bay area is home to some of our nation’s best teams, including The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Tampa Bay Lightning, and the Tampa Bay Rays. With active playing schedules and many home games, there is major league fun to be enjoyed. Also, with Brady back as quarterback for the Bucs, and a hockey team that loves to win – you simply can’t lose if you are looking for legendary sports action.
  2. Fall Festivals: From pumpkin patches in shopping districts like Hyde Park, to Oktoberfest events brimming at local breweries, there is no shortage of fall fun. More unique festivities include the Tampa Pig Jig on Oct. 22 at Julian B Lane Riverfront Park in downtown Tampa, featuring live music, drinks, and a barbecue competition. Also on Oct. 22, you can enjoy neighborly fun during the Fall Fest in the Village at Carrollwood Cultural Center. In Pasco County from Oct. 29 to 30, Wesley Chapel will feature their Fall Festival hosted by The North Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce. Check the event sites for official details and updates.
  3. Autumn Activities: Remember, you can always turn a Florida fall day into an exciting event with outdoor activities like golfing at a top-rated course, sailing along our gorgeous waterways, sight-seeing on a dolphin tour, or fishing on boats or charters. The fall months of hurricane season bring fewer tourists, which means locals can leisurely stroll the boardwalk at John’s Pass Village and savor seafood dinners at the best local restaurants before those winter crowds arrive in Clearwater.
  4. Halloween Happenings: To say that our region has Halloween events would be an understatement. Tampa Bay is a Halloween destination for “Howl-O-Scream” at Busch Gardens and the annual “Creatures of the Night” at ZooTampa throughout the month of October. From whimsical thrills to entertaining terror, there is something for all ages to enjoy this season in Florida.

This is just the short list. Be sure to check local listings and calendars to confirm official details and to find other great events happening around Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco Counties. We encourage local homeowners to live the ultimate Florida life around our beautiful region.
