5 Free Fall Events In and Around Frisco

5 Free Fall Events In and Around Frisco

It’s fall, y’all! Sure, it may still be in the 90s here in Texas, but our state has a strong FALL SPIRIT despite the heat. Fall is our family’s favorite season- we love the (forthcoming) respite from the heat, the pumpkin patches and festivals, and change in outlook and attitude that comes with each new season. Fall is also the best season to find free or cheap family entertainment. There are so many options for family fun! I’ve collected 5 of these options for you to try.

Fall Festival and Farmers Market at Shades of Green (Frisco) - Shades of Green is the cutest plant and flower nursery in North Texas! And in the fall, Shades of Green turns into a pumpkin wonderland. Be sure to join Shades of Green for their free Fall Festival and Farmers Market on Saturday, October 5, for hayrides, face painting, petting zoo, and crafts, as well as seasonal produce, fresh eggs, and other locally-sourced goodies.

Pumpkin Hollow (Little Elm) - Make the short trip to Little Elm Park for their 3-day Pumpkin Hollow event (evenings October 17-19). This free event will feature an old-fashioned carnival, hay rides, and lighted pumpkin trail. The Haunted Hallow experience is $10/person (looks like it could be too intense for younger kids).

Beer & Boos Fest (Frisco) - Brought to us by the Frisco Roughriders, this free event will be held at Dr. Pepper Stadium on Saturday, October 26. Beer & Boos will feature a petting zoo, pumpkin painting, costume contest, trick-or-treating, and catch on the field. A commemorative cup and two drink tickets can be purchased by adults for $10 here.

Friscovania (Frisco) - Friscovania at Toyota Stadium is now free to the public! This annual event is on Saturday, October 26, this year and will feature trick-or-treating, live music, a haunted carnival, magic shows, costume contests, food trucks (for purchase), and more!

Trick-or-Treat the Square - Wear your costumes and come out for some free trick-or-treating at Frisco Square on Sunday, October 27. This event is held during the daytime so is very kid-friendly and fun for the whole family. There will also be carnival games, hayrides, inflatables, a game truck, and vendor fair.

And that’s 5! But there are so many more fall events happening in and around Frisco this coming month. Be sure to check the Frugal Frisco Momma Events Calendar for more events- it’s jam packed! Happy fall, y’all!
