  • Overview

    Mark your calendars for the Beaverdale Fall Festival on September 16-17, 2022!

    This year's event includes a carnival, car show, horse rides, street games, food vendors, sidewalk sales & more!

    More than 40 years ago, merchants in the Beaverdale area first began the annual fall tradition now known as the Beaverdale Fall Festival. Sidewalk sales, carnival rides, music, beer tents & parade were centered around an Octoberfest theme & were known as Beaverdale Days.  Cold weather eventually caused the event to be moved into September & the name was changed to the Beaverdale Fall Festival. 

    In the meantime, Holy Trinity Church had been hosting an annual event each September featuring a raffle, carnival rides, food, talent show, beer tent & a road run.  During the late 1970s, the Beaverdale merchants & Holy Trinity decided to combine their efforts, leading to an expanded, single weekend of neighborhood fun.  From there, the parade became a joint effort of the two groups and served as a rallying point, as they began to unify their resources, advertising and planning efforts into what the Beaverdale Fall Festival is today.
