Autumn is a season of splendid color. Northeast Ohioans enjoy indulging in seasonal fun by going to pumpkin patches and apple orchards, and corn mazes and hayrides are also at the top of the mind as soon as the season rolls around. The unsung hero of the fall is the chrysanthemum, however, as it decorates the entryways of homes but is often forgotten when it comes to the seasonal festivity. That is unless you visit Barberton, Ohio. This quaint community is less than an hour away from Cleveland, and it throws the very finest mum festival in Northeast Ohio each fall. Pack some candy corn and caramel apples for a road trip snack, because the trip to this mum festival is sure to get you in the fall spirit.

September is a beautiful month in Ohio, but nothing quite compares to the beauty of 17,000 plants blooming in brilliant warm shades. Have you visited this event in the past? We’d love to hear about your experience at the loveliest mum festival in Northeast Ohio and see photos from your visit!

If you’re longing for more fall fun, a trip to the Holden Arboretum is an incredible way to immerse yourself in Greater Cleveland’s fall foliage.
