Each fall the Queens County Farm Museum runs a series of family-friendly, harvest-themed events. First up is the Queens County Fair (September 23–24), with blue-ribbon competitions in livestock, produce and arts and crafts, not to mention pie-eating contests, hayrides and live music. On weekends through the end of October, enjoy the Amazing Maize Maze, pick pumpkins and sample New York apples. The harvest fun finishes with the Children’s Fall Festival (October 29), featuring kids’ games, bounce houses, pig races and a petting zoo.
