Stauffers of Kissel Hill Fall Festival 2013

It's officially Fall and that means York is abundant with Autumn festivals!  There are so many farms and markets in York County that offer family fun, like corn mazes, pumpkin painting, hay rides and much more for families with kids of all ages.  Many of these activities are free or low-cost and that includes Stauffers of Kissel Hill's Fall Festival.  

Stauffers of Kissel Hill has two York County locations: Dover, PA at 3949 Carlisle Rd. and East York at 4450 Lincoln Highway.  Each location holds their Fall Festival for two weekends, on Saturday, September 28, 2013 and Saturday October 5, 2013.   

Both locations are holding their festival from 10am-3pm.  At the Dover Stauffers of Kissel Hill location the activities include scarecrow-building (this is the only paid activity), a straw maze, photo opportunities, tattoos, pumpkin painting and other free and fun activities.  At the East York Stauffers of Kissel Hill location the activities include all of the same ones as the Dover location but they also offer a hay ride, which is a low-cost activity.  There will also be other visitors at the East York location including the York County SPCA and both locations will be selling food.  

This is a fun time for all!  Check out our past visits (and here) to the Dover Stauffers of Kissel Hill to see some photos of previous SKH Fall Festivals.
