Fall Events in our Region
As the seasons move from summer to fall, you’ll find a wide range of fall events in Western Wayne County to delight you and your family—and some of them offer opportunities to promote your business as well.
Come experience some Erie Canal history at the 50th annual Canaltown Days in Palmyra, one of our favorite fall events. You’ll find everything from a historical canal walk to an art show; horsedrawn wagon rides to beef on weck sandwiches. There’ll be a parade (with emcee Scott Hetsko) and music throughout the festival’s two days: Saturday, Sept. 16, 10 am to 6 pm, and Sunday, Sept. 17, 10 am to 4 pm. Events will take place on and around Main Street in Palmyra, and most are free. You’ll also find free parking at the Wayne County Fairgrounds on W. Jackson St., with shuttles to take you to the festival area.
Spooktacular Specials in Palmyra
Get in the mood for Halloween with an Historical Ghost Walk Tour on September 15 from 8 to 10 pm in Palmyra, sponsored by the museums of Historic Palmyra. Park at the Alling Coverlet Museum on 122 William St. for a tour of the darkened streets that will bring on the chills. The tour is $10 and you won’t want to miss this opportunity to explore one of the most haunted towns in upstate New York. Can’t get enough of Palmyra’s poltergeists? Mark your calendar for October 14, at 6, 7:30, or 9 pm to join a walk through Palmyra’s cemetery. Tickets are $15, second one for half off; and children for $8.
