Find an Idaho fall festival to attend in 2022. Our events calendar for September, October and November 2022 has things to do across Idaho including activities in Boise, Twin Falls and Idaho Falls. Our list includes festivals celebrating the local harvest, food, music, beer, Oktoberfest and more.
We're in the process of updating events and are through all events that happened previously in September and October. November will be updated in its entirety soon.
All events showing current dates need to be verified to confirm that changes to the schedule were not made by the organizers after publication here, due to COVID-19, weather/natural disasters, or other reasons. We do not run these events, and would hate for anyone to go out of their way only to find the event had been canceled after releasing a date. Please click through to the event website to confirm! Be safe and have a great fall!
We know that you want current events. But we often don’t have dates for every event for the current year. We leave those events with their link here so that you can look for the new dates yourself. We hope you don’t mind!
