For a full weekend of traditional fall fun, jaunt to northeast Alabama for the Boaz Harvest Festival, the longest-running small-town harvest festival in Alabama. The 2023 event marks the festival’s 59th year and is set for Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 5-7.
While you might opt for a day trip based on how the timing of events matches your interests, I recommend you book a stay so you can have three days to take in the full experience of all a small-town harvest festival in Alabama has to offer. There’s nothing else quite like it.
