A fall staple returns to Reston Farm Garden Market later this month.

Owners Lowell and Bonita Weinstein announced today (Tuesday) that the annual Fall Festival will return from September 24 to October 30, bringing activities like a petting zoo, a train, moon bounces and seasonal produce at the farm.

“We love the annual Fall Festival tradition and invite families to experience the joy and bring home favorite pumpkins, plants or apple cider donuts,” Weinstein said. “We continue to provide a safe and clean experience for all of our customers.”

Local food trucks will be part of the event for the weekend, along with seasonal produce like pansies, natural jams, organic honey, pumpkins, seasonal decor, apple cider and ciders from apple tonight.

Although the festival was not interrupted last year due to the pandemic, this year has different time slots, says Diane Murphy, spokeswoman for the garden.

The festival will be open Friday through Sunday with five paid 90-minute online sessions, beginning at 10 a.m. and ending at 6:30 p.m. Admission is $28 per child and $7 per parent, although children 2 years and under can enter for free.

Other activities not included in the ticket include face painting, balloons, animal feeding, donuts and apple cider.

Staff will clean the bouncy houses and surrounding areas for the 30 minutes between sessions. Tickets are available online for purchase.

The farm is located at 10800 Baron Cameron Avenue in Reston.
