Fall Farm Fest

Saturday, October 14th from 12 - 7 p.m. & Sunday, October 15th from 12 - 5 p.m.

Lost Creek Reserve & Knoop Agricultural Heritage Center

Amidst the tree-lined lanes and colorful foliage at Lost Creek Reserve, we will host our biggest event of the year, Fall Farm Fest. On October 14th and 15th the historic Knoop homestead at the Reserve will be transformed into a hub of activity. Over the two-day festival, thousands of people will join in on the fun to celebrate Miami County’s agricultural heritage.


Are you ready to have some Home. Grown. Fun? A weekend spent at the Fall Farm Fest is always filled with activities for all ages. A full list of activities will be available in September, but you can be sure that favorites like the pumpkin patch, wagon rides, corn maze and farm animals and demonstrations will be back in 2017. Please check back in September for a map and schedule of events.   

Scarecrow Contest

Every year, our Scarecrow Lane is a highlight of the Fall Farm Fest. Most visitors at the Fall Farm Fest take the wagon ride or walk down this charming lane which is lined with scarecrows. The visitors then get to vote on their favorite!

These creations are put together by local businesses, organizations and families! By creating a scarecrow, these groups are able to capitalize on FREE advertising to over 12,000 community members from the region! To enter your group in the 9th Annual Scarecrow Contest fill out this form - available in August.
