Are you a Hocus Pocus fan or just love fall weather, Pumpkin Spice Lattes and sweater weather? Well Memphis is the place for you during this season! Be sure to enjoy this fun fall activities throughout Memphis and the surrounding areas.
– Historical Haunts Memphis (ongoing)
Historical Haunts hosts ongoing spooky tours, haunted pub crawls, and ghost hunts at various downtown locations, plus the Woodruff Fontaine House. This goes on year-round, not just during this spooky season.
– Backbeat Tours (ongoing)
Backbeat hosts walking Ghost Tours downtown on a regular basis as well as a haunted pub “crawls” where you pedal the Sprock ‘n’ Roll pedal bar to three stops with a side of haunted history (Wednesdays and last Fridays).
– Mid-South Corn Maze (Sept. 15 – Nov. 4)
Get lost in the annual corn maze at the Agricenter September 15 through November 4. It’s open Thursdays through Sundays in September and Wednesdays through Sundays in October. It is HAUNTED on September 30, October 6, 7, 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, 28, 31 and November 3 and 4. Check out their website for exact hour. It’s $7 for adults, $5 for kids 6-12, and free for kids 5 and younger when it’s just corn. When the maze is haunted, it’s $15 for everybody. My pro tip is to go early because the line when it’s late and haunted can get long.
– Falcon Ridge Farms (Sept. 29 – Oct. 31)
It’s a 1.5 hour drive from Memphis, but Falcon Ridge in Toone, Tennessee, has a Fall Festival that will be open September 23 – October 31 every day of the week (click here for hours) with a pumpkin patch, pre-picked pumpkins for sale, a hayride, pony rides, petting zoo, corn maze, and more. It’s $10 general admission plus extra for pumpkins, rides, food, etc. Details here.
– Dia De Los Muertos Parade & Festival Preview (Sept. 29)
Get a taste of what to expect at the October 7th parade (see below) at this Preview Party from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the Tower Courtyard at Overton Square.
– Wicked Ways Haunted House (Sept. 29 – Oct. 31)
I’m no haunted house aficionado, but I hear this one’s the scariest in town. They make it clear that it’s NOT for the faint of heart. It’s in a warehouse at 160 Cumberland Street near Wiseacre Taproom. Tickets, as far as their website says, are $20 for adults or $13 for kids – or pay $35 to skip the line – and some proceeds benefit St. Jude. They’re open on select days (mostly Wed. – Sun.) from September 29 through October 31. Hours here.
