Make Kings Landing Part of Your Fall Adventures

I experienced fall at Kings Landing for the first time last year and, let me tell you, it’s spectacular! If you’ve visited Kings Landing in the fall, you know what I mean. If you haven’t, make this year your year!

Kings Landing in the fall is a treat for all the senses: the smell of the fires in the beautifully decorated historic homes, the sound of a horse-drawn wagon rolling by, the taste of warm apple cider from the King’s Head Inn as you sit on the Grant Store porch, the feel of the cool breeze on your face, and the sight of the colourful changing leaves.

Fall at Kings Landing also means lots of awesome programming. The remaining special events include the Bonnet Hop, Fall Culinary Weekend, Weather Weekend, and two Thanksgiving Harvest Celebration weekends. That means there’s still lots of time to join in a country dance, learn some 19th-century cooking secrets and hear some wild weather stories.

The Thanksgiving Harvest Celebration weekends will be jam-packed with lots of fun. Hop on a wagon ride, shoot a Brown Bess musket, play some games, try your hand at the crosscut saw, and more! Visit the Kings Landing website for the full list of events.

Another autumn highlight at Kings Landing is the annual Thanksgiving auction. The villagers have been busy baking, knitting, carving, smithing, crafting, pickling, printing, and more in preparation for the event. You won’t want to miss this year’s auction at the King’s Head Inn at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 13, for your chance to take home something unique!

Other things to look forward to this fall include live music at the Summer Stage, the 19th-century dress-up in the Heritage Gallery, the lumber camp exhibit in the Ross Gallery, the tasty treats at the Axe & Plough Café, the friendly farm animals, and so much more. Whether you're a first-timer like I was last year or a seasoned visitor, you won't want to miss your chance to step back in time this fall!
