It is hard to say goodbye to those last weeks of summer, but the cooler weather means fall is on its way. Markham offers numerous events during this time of year to get you outside before the cold winter weather arrives. Here are just three Markham city events you don’t want to miss this autumn season.
1. The 225thAnniversary Celebration of Applefest
Applefest is one of the tastiest events of the year in Markham. On September 28, 2019, head to the Markham Museum for the 225thanniversary celebration. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., your entire family can participate in interactive activities, live entertainment, and rides.
You will want to come with an empty stomach so you have plenty of room for a variety of apple treats including delicious apple cider. Food trucks will also be parked at the event so you can easily find something that will get your taste buds watering. This event is free for individuals of all ages.
2. Main Street Markham Farmers’ Market
Fill your home with delicious fall fruits and vegetables including a variety of squash, pumpkins, apples, and more from the Farmers’ Market. The Markham Farmers’ Market is located right on main street and takes place every Saturday until October 12. Not only can you leave with produce, but you can enjoy many crafts and merchandise from local vendors as well as live music during the event.
Get into the Halloween spirit at ScaryFest. This family-friendly event will take place Saturday, October 26 and Sunday, October 27 from 1 to 7 p.m. at the Markham Museum. Participate in a variety of Halloween activities including a Monster Mash dance, trick-or-treating, and a fortune teller. The museum also transforms into a fun and festive Halloween town, which young children will love to explore.
To participate in ScaryFest, it is $9 a person. All children 24-months and younger are free. Markham Museum members also can attend the event free of charge.
