Fall Fun in Sudbury

Fall Fun in Sudbury

Fall is a beautiful time to visit Sudbury: the iconic maple trees are changing colour on the hiking trails; local farms and ranches are collecting their harvest, popular festivals kick off, and the most notorious haunted houses are back in action!

Here are a few activities to enjoy while visiting Sudbury in the fall:

Halloween at Dynamic Earth

From the first Saturday of October until the last Monday of October take part in the many activities hosted by Dynamic Earth! Pumpkinferno is back again—this outdoor exhibit made of thousands of illuminated, decorative pumpkins will leave you in awe. Also at Dynamic Earth is one of the best haunted houses you’ve ever seen. The Tunnel of Terror is set deep underground where ghouls and monsters frighten visitors every step of the way.

Terror Train 6077 at the Northern Ontario Railroad Museum

The scare factor is always high during Halloween at NORMHC and even the bravest visitors will find themselves feeling frightful on the Terror Train 6077! The tours begin at sundown and continue until 10:00 p.m. every Friday through Sunday in October including Devil's Night.

Fall Harvest at Wagon Wheel Ranch

Enjoy the bounty of nature at Wagon Wheel Ranch! This family run ranch has an event for every season, and in the fall they celebrate with the Fall Harvest. From the last week of September all through October, you can stop by the ranch and enjoy pumpkin picking, wagon rides, pony rides, and the Pumpkin Cannon. On the weekends, you can enjoy a tasty fall barbecue. It’s a great way to spend the day!

Hiking the Trails

The colours are amazing in autumn, and you can immerse yourself in the feelings of fall on a hiking trip to Onaping High Falls, Laurentian Conservation Area, and many other trails. Not only is a hike a great way to experience the majestic beauty of our natural surroundings, but it also makes for a cute day, family day trip, or photo opportunity for all your social media needs.


The fall is a busy time for festivals in Sudbury. One of the biggest events, Cinéfest, takes place over ten days in September. Enjoy approximately 135 first-class films, including full-length features, shorts, documentaries and animation throughout the week while supporting Canadian and International artists. 

Also in September, The New Music Fest offers a great lineup of musicians ready to put on a great show at this all ages event. Stay tuned to their website for notice of the upcoming line up for this year's show!
