Fall in CK

As the leaves turn, showing their bright oranges, reds and yellows, the air feels crisp, and we welcome fall in Chatham-Kent. There are a multitude of fall activities available for residents and visitors alike in CK. While social distancing is still required, there is plenty of opportunity to get out and enjoy the rural amenities we have to offer. You can take the family to pick pumpkins or apples, grab a hot beverage from one of your favourite cafes, and wander through Chatham-Kent's many trails to admire the changing of the leaves.

Chatham-Kent is renowned for it's collection of fall garden decor. Visit any one of our garden centres and pick up brightly coloured mums, corn stalks, pumpkins and gourds for your own decor with CK flair! Don't miss the annual MumFest at Ross' Nurserymen. Not only can you pick up beautiful fall mums in every colour available but they'll have other activities for the family to enjoy too. 

There are many great attractions open like Buxton Historic Site & Museum, the Josiah Henson Museum of African-Canadian History or Black Mecca Museum, for appointment-only tours and a way to learn more about our rich Black History. 

Bring the family and see how long it takes you to find your way through this year's iMaze in Thamesville! While many orchards already have apples for you to make delicious fall desserts, why not pick your own at Van Koeverden Apple Orchards also in Thamesville. 

The Tilbilly Halloween Adventure Farm is open again (starting September 23). Pumpkins and activities await your visit, with a take-home pumpkin included in the price of admission. We also suggest a trail ride at TJ Stables. What's better than an afternoon viewing beautiful fall colours and riding along one of their trails on a gorgeous horse? TJ Stables offers one hour guided tours on one of their 17 different trails!

Looking for a fall trip starter? We've got a great fall day itinerary built for you! Whatever your idea of the perfect fall day is, you'll find it it in CK!
