Things to do in Kelowna during Autumn & Halloween
Autumn in Kelowna is absolutely spectacular but doesn’t last super long. The longest seasons in Kelowna are summer and winter. The city tends to have extreme temperatures and doesn’t stay at its in-between stages for long. Temperatures will start to fall in October and guests can enjoy the oranges, yellows, and reds of Kelowna’s forests and hiking trails. Many wineries stay open in the fall and will serve delicious mulled wine (I’m looking at you Meadow Vista). There are still lots of things to do in Kelowna during the fall, even though the lake is too cold to swim in.

Pumpkin Patches and Corn Mazes
The most popular pumpkin patch is hands down McMillan Farms. They have a corn maze on site along with plenty of pumpkins to pick out for carving jack-o-lanterns or making pumpkin pie. There are also plenty of animals to see and pet at the farm as well. Visitors can also enjoy hay rides around the entire farm as well as snacks and warm drinks. The other corn maze worth mentioning is the huge Kelowna corn maze. Both the Kelowna Corn Maze and McMillan Farms hold spooky events closer to Halloween.
Three other corn mazes in and near Kelowna include the following:
Halloween Things to Do in Kelowna
There is so much to do during Halloween in Kelowna. Aside from visiting the haunted corn mazes there are also plenty of other spooky activities to take part in. There is a haunted house you can visit that’s especially creepy. I visited last year with my husband and had a really good time. Be sure to get there early as there’s always a big line up.

Fall Festivals and Events
Some of the fall events you can look forward to in Kelowna include the HopScotch Whiskey, Beer and Spirits Festival, and the Fall Okanagan Wine Festival. It’s the perfect time of year to put on that alcohol jacket of yours so these festivals only make sense to attend!
Other fall events include the BMO Okanagan Marathon, Break Out West (Western Canadian Music Awards), and the Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery Mixoff. To see a full list of all the fall festivals and events happening in Kelowna click here.
