Milk House Farm Market sign

cat cuddled up You know when you wake up chilly and the last thing you want to do is get out of bed? That’s me all throughout the fall season and into winter.

Fall is in the air, all you have to do is look around Bucks County. Scarecrow contests have returned, wine dinners are a-plenty, and restaurants are offering up their seasonal dishes all throughout the month of September and into October.

Speaking of October, you can also get a head start on Oktoberfest this week in Bucks, too! Keep reading for more fun and foodie events.


Wine tasting

Wine tasting dinner. Tired of the same old when it comes to wine? Spend an evening with undiscovered wines, brand new to your palate, at The Washington House Restaurant and Hotel on Tuesday, September 12. It includes a special five course dinner with 10 wine samples for $59 per person. Note these dinners fill up quickly, so reserve your spot by calling 215.257.3000 to book a table.

Are you more of a beer drinker? Learn about and sip Oktoberfest brews from the friends at Great Barn Brewery this week at the Logan Inn. Pair the beers with tasty appetizers and don’t forget to cheers – Prost! The class is Tuesday, September 12 from 7 – 9 pm. Class is also $45.

Friend of a Farmer dinner. Caleb’s American Kitchen continues its Friend of a Farmer dinner through October this year, and this Thursday is the September dinner complete with a four-course prix fixe dinner made with local ingredients. Cost is $50 per person on Thursday. The dinner also continues on Friday, and it’s $54 on Friday, not including tax and gratuity. Reservations are required for the dinners.

Scarecrows in Peddlers Village

Scarecrows are coming! Stroll through Peddler’s Village this fall, watch the leaves change colors, and sample some cheese at a Casa Casale tasting. Don’t forget to meet all the scarecrow friends…there’s a scarecrow display and competition beginning September 11 through October 29. You can visit all of the stores in the village and vote for your favorite.

The actual Scarecrow Festival is September 16 – 17. If you stop by Casa Casale, they will have their own scarecrow. Also, try one of their pumpkin spiced lattes and pumpkin spiced biscotti while you are there.
