2022 Fall Colors Festival
Saturday, October 22, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Bring the family out to McCloud Nature Park and celebrate the brilliant colors of autumn with us!
Autumn is a beautiful time of year, and McCloud Nature Park bursts into colorful splendor in October and November every year. Because of the multitude of tree species found within the park, the wide variety of autumn colors lead McCloud Nature Park to be voted by the public through Visit Indiana as one of the best places for fall foliage in the state every year. The park was also cited by The Points Guy as one of the best places in the world to see beautiful fall foliage without the crowds.
As such, we celebrate the fabulous fall foliage every October with our fun, FREE, family-friendly Fall Colors Festival. We have 232 acres of natural beauty to explore while you’re here, including 6½ miles of trails, our historic truss bridge, the wetland boardwalk and observation deck, the McCloud Nature Center, and our fish-themed 2022 McCloud Prairie Maze.
We have hands-on activities for everyone to enjoy at the Fall Colors Festival!
- Throw an atlatl (an ancient hunting weapon)
- Test your archery skills
- Go on a hayride (cash only; $5/person; $20 per family up to 6 people)
- Play some yard games
