1. Apple Harvest Celebration & Half Term Activities at Erddig

2. Llangollen Food Festival - 14th & 15th October

For more than twenty five years, Llangollen Food Festival has been a beacon for food producers across North Wales and Border region. From the start, we have introduced great food producers to a hungry audience. Over one weekend every October, we've welcomed cheese makers, pork pie producers, vintners, chocolatiers and much, much more, which may be why we were voted one of the Top 10 Food Festivals in the UK by The Guardian. Run entirely by volunteers, we are passionate about food, particularly when it's made by our fantastic local producers.

3. Pumpkin Fest Nights at Manorafon Farm Park

Pumpkin picking, spooky Haloween Trail, live music and lots of yummy food options! There's lots to enjoy this October at Manorafon Farm Park.

4. Chirk Castle Halloween Trail

National Trust property Chirk Castle is holding a Halloween trail every day from October 21 to November 5. Help to protect the castle from the mischievous spirits, elves and goblins that lurk around. Grab a trail sheet and complete a task at each checkpoint to find the ingredients to make a special potion, before casting a spell.

5. Harvest and Hibernation Trail at Penrhyn Castle

Celebrate the harvest at Penrhyn Castle as the season of pumpkin and gourds approaches. Step into the world of folklore as you take part in some magical local traditions. Discover the harvest feast in the walled garden, find our bonfire and place your name in it for good luck, and spot the witches in the ivy. As you explore the gardens and grounds find out how the animals prepare for winter as the seasons change.
