Fall Festival Fantasia

Foods, Drinks, Crafts…and Lots of Fall-Like Things to Fill Your Day.

Sperdute Farms

Fresh from the farm…from one of finest farms around—the Sperdute Farm Family of New Castle returns for 2022 offering a full array of products made from their very own produce. In season, the family raises an abundance of sweet corn, tomatoes and other vegetables including a wide variety of peppers, eggplants, cucumbers, zucchini, pumpkins, watermelons, cantaloupes, butternut and acorn squash, Indian corn and gourds.

The Sperdute pumpkin patch spans 25 acres and all of the decorative field pumpkins at the festival were supplied by them…and you’ll have the opportunity to buy decorative and pie pumpkins, along with a vibrant mix of gourds, and jars of tasty jams and spreads spicy, savory and seasonal. This is one farmer’s market you won’t want to miss.

A family fun festival of fruits, gourds and all things with the flavor of Fall
Uncompromising Quality for Over Half a Century—From its humble beginnings in 1957, selling vegetables on a small scale using a cart and picnic table…to a vibrant 95-acre enterprise featuring an abundant variety of nature’s finest produce. Sperdute Farms is a member of the Pennsylvania Vegetable Growers Association, and the Farm Market Association of New Castle.

A Pumpkin Patch Aplenty

Traditional foods and drinks that come with October and the Fall fill our banquet of tasty treats and enticing eats. You’ll discover an eclectic row of craft vendors and product makers, many from areas right here in our hometown…proud entrepreneurs and talented artisans who add tons of color and atmosphere to the festivities.

Kool Kids Stuff Too!

We didn’t forget the kids…family fun is what we’re all about and while we’re sure the little ones will be overwhelmed at seeing what will likely be their first giant pumpkin ever, we’ve got some specific activities to satisfy their size as well…

  • KIDS “PEDAL TRACTOR PULL”…for tykes 3-to 8 years-old, the fun is endless the fascination on your child’s face priceless. Watch as each child pedals a replica farm tractor while dragging a weighted sled behind them. Dragging creates friction, so the farther one pedals, the harder it gets…but the fun is in the experience…and the small prize each child receives for their effort
  • “Color With Chrissy”…one of the best face painters in the tri-state, the talented and tastefully creative Christine Patton brings her palette of incredible designs to add joy and surprise to the faces of everyone.

Punkin’ Pic Photo Spots!

Select selfi-spots, uniquely configured and staffed with “authentic-looking” characters …we’ve created designated and delightful photo-op areas to help you frame—primarily for children and parents/guardians with child-like whims—memorable festival moments and social media ops while at the event.

The dressed- and dolled-up characters at each station will be surrounded by dynamic staging elements relevant to their costume themes and festival for that perfect picture. The characters appear at scheduled times each day of the event and dedicated festival staff will assist with individual/family photo taking as impersonating characters interact socially with guests.

Check the event schedule for character appearance times…there are two stations, each with its own character, both days of the event.
