Greater Fennville Chamber of Commerce announces Fall Activities
Posted: Oct 18, 2012

Fall in Fennville is certainly the place you and your family want to be! With explosive autumn colors quickly finding their way to the tips of treetops, take a day or weekend to meander through our winding country roads, walk through our shops, restaurants, and mosey through our orchards.

While visiting Fennville, stay at any one of our bed and breakfasts, including the Kingsley House, J. Paule’s Fenn Inn (which is dog friendly!), Hidden Pond B&B, or Spruce Cutter’s Cottage. Cottage rental listings are also available through Lakeshore Lodging. Enjoy many dining opportunities as well. Come to Salt of the Earth for a rustic farm-to-fork experience, enjoy a fresh board menu on the weekends and house concerts on a Sundays. If you’re looking for a white linen experience dine at Fennville Station and Dining Coach for authentic Italian Cuisine and live music on Wednesdays. For more casual fare bring the family to

Hop ‘N for pizza, grinders, salads, ice cream, and a round of pool or try the  historic Steven’s Hotel where the menu includes  burgers, pizza and a variety of entrees and get the historical scoop from the knowledgeable staff. If jazz is your passion, head on over to the What Not Inn for live music Saturdays and Sundays and enjoy a fantastic entree, or try your hand at Open Mic Night Jazz Jam Mondays. Don’t forget to visit Crane’s Pie Pantry and Restaurant for a slice of pie, apple cider doughnuts and a glass of cider!If you’re in a hurry, grab a meal from Subway and visit one of our Allegan county parks.  A must when visiting the area is a stop at Fenn Valley Vineyards for a taste of our locally grown and produced wines.

Looking for art? Visit the local art venues downtown and in the area. 89 Art Scene hosts a collective of artists right downtown Fennville, with thirteen artists to peruse.  Stop by on the weekends and find unique and handmade art then meander to the west and find Dawn Stafford’s work at Peachbelt Studio and Gallery on M-89.  A visit Khnemu Studio on Fernwood Farm provides the opportunity to visit a potter’s studio and a working  farm complete with livestock. Not sure where to start? Join the Blue Coast Artists in their fall tour the first weekend of October and visit a diverse group of art studios all within the Fennville Area.

Despite the poor apple crop this year Crane’s U-Pick is open for pumpkin and fall raspberries (while they last) then head a bit further west to Earl’s Farm Market and take home jars of homemade jam, jellies, sauces and salsas plus there’s always room for ice cream! While you’re on the way to Earl’s, check out Huntree Nursery and pick up your spring bulbs for fall planting and check out their Saturday morning gardening class offerings. Think ahead to the holidays? Check out Barager Pines Farm.

Worried about inclement weather? Fennville offers activities for the entire family as well. Check out the Children’s Museum of Fennville during their Not So Spooky Spectacular October 27th, or look and see what the Fennville District Library has to offer for activities. Also our newest Chamber member; Transitions Fennville offers a variety of educational seminars and hand on skill building classes.

Spend the second weekend of October at the Goose Festival! Filled with parade, music competition, goose calling competition, carnival rides, a classic car show, craft shows, a 5K for both adults and children, and more. Be a part of Fennville’s very own tradition!

Should anything come up during your stay, you can find medical services, veterinary services, a grocery store, drug store, hardware store, hair care, banks, churches, auto repair services, construction, plumbing, or electrical services, fitness centers, insurance, and much more.
