Fall in Maine

Spectacular Foliage - Stunning Views, Crisp Air & Fall Harvest

With crisp air and gorgeous foliage, autumn is ideal for leaf peepers to enjoy the fall foliage. Head up or down the coast or into the Western Mountains for the day or long weekend to view spectacular scenery during the height of foliage season. Visitors will find fall prime time to enjoy the beauty of Casco Bay by taking a fall cruise on the water. Most of the local excursion boats continue their schedules into early October, and Casco Bay Lines provides island-commuting services year-round. 

A Fall Harvest Bounty

Many visitors to the area take in Maine’s fall harvest by visiting an apple orchard during September and October to pick their own, collect pumpkins, enjoy a hayride, or tour an area working farm. Visitors can schedule a trip to coincide with Great Maine Apple Day at the Union Fairgrounds, or many of the county fairs that begin in August and continue through September until the Fryeburg Fair in October ends the season. Harvest on the Harbor, Portland's Premier Food and Wine Festival punctuates the season each year with a full week of scheduled events including the Marketplace with hundreds of vendors, entertainment, demos, and local products.

Cultural Activities & Sporting Events

Fall is ideal for taking in a show, and options are a bounty of their own. Check in with Portland Stage, a professional theatre organization, which starts its season in September. Merrill Auditorium, the home of the Portland Symphony Orchestra, in Portland begins its season in October and runs through the winter and spring. Portland’s nightlife hits its heights in the fall at area hotspots, and local sporting events kick off their seasons as well: enjoy minor league hockey by rooting for the Portland Pirates through the fall and winter, or check out the Maine Red Claws, Portland's NBA development league.
