Fall Festival Set to Return at Reston Farm Garden Market

As fall descends on the area, the Reston Farm Garden Market is set to bring its annual Fall Festival back to the community.

The festival will be held each Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and is planned to begin on Friday, Sept. 25, and run through Nov. 1 at the Reston Farm Garden Market (10800 Baron Cameron Avenue)..

The hours for the festival will run from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. daily. The festival days will be broken into five 90-minute ticketed sessions with a 30-minute period between each to allow for staff to clean and sanitize the area.

Tickets are $20 per child, which includes the entry for one adult. An additional ticket for one more parent or guardian will cost $5. Siblings or children age 2 and under are free with a paid child’s ticket. All tickets must be purchased in advance online at the garden market’s website.

The festival will include a variety of activities, including several moon bounces, an inflatable corn maze, a petting zoo and train rides. Additionally, local food trucks will be a part of the event during the weekends.

“We are so excited to have been able to pivot successfully during the pandemic and equally excited to be able to offer the Fall Festival to our supportive community,” a statement read from Lowell and Bonita Weinstein, owners of the Reston Farm Garden Market.

In addition to disinfecting play areas between sessions, COVID-19 safety practices will include a limited number of guests per timed session, as well as temperature checks prior to entry. Face masks will be required for all guests 10 years of age or older.

The Garden Market will remain open for full-service business during the festival, and will not require a ticket.
