After a sweltering summer, we are looking forward to the fall events and festivals in Miami County.
Our entire county has so much to offer year-round, but autumn is where Miami County really shines! The leaves begin to change, there’s a crisp coolness in the air, and there are plenty of events to entertain the entire family.
As you make plans to enjoy fall break with the kids or schedule a quick weekend trip, be sure to check out our upcoming events in September and October. From music aficionados, history buffs, and autumn lovers, there’s something for everyone on this list.
Originating in Ithaca, New York, the PorchFest has made its way to our community. On September 11, stroll through the historic neighborhoods of Troy, Ohio, and hear the talents of our very own neighbors in the Southwest Historic District.
With more than 40 bands, attendees will experience a hodgepodge of styles and genres echoing through the Southwest Historic District on porches, in side-yards, lots, and patios.
Enjoy food and additional activities at the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center and Troy-Miami County Public Library.
