All About Holland 2023

If touring brilliant colors isn’t enough to inspire a Holland autumn adventure, let yourself be drawn by our annual events. Big rigs rumble through our historic downtown for the Labor Day Truck and Fire Truck parades. Cannons and muskets boom during our Civil War Muster. Live music celebrates the winners of the Art on the Island competition. And that’s not all. Chefs and performers from across the globe beckon guests to eat and dance their way around the world at the International Festival. Arguably, the highlight of the season is Fall Fest. Join the community in planting many of the bulbs that bloom into millions of tulips each springtime in Holland. Watch professional carvers turn 1,000-pound pumpkins into giant jack-o-lanterns, ask a downtown street performer to make a balloon creature, and browse the artisan market at the windmill. Plus, many of the vendors at the Holland Farmers Market will be right in the midst of a harvest! For more fall fun, come downtown on Halloween weekend for family-friendly trick-or-treating and our Día de Los Muertos celebration. Find all the fall festivities (and the seasonal fun to come) at

Surrounded by vineyards and orchards , Holland offers the best of autumn.

Imagine winding through canopies of glorious crimson, burnt orange, and gold to arrive at Virtue Cider’s rustic tasting room. Envision lifting your child toward a Honeycrisp apple at Crane’s Orchard. Picture hunting through a pumpkin patch or navigating a corn maze, a warm cinnamon-spiced donut in hand. Whatever option you choose, there’s a lifetime of memories to harvest in Holland. For the most intense leaf peeping experience, climb to the top of Mt. Pisgah. Sandwiched between the vast expanse of Lake Michigan and the dark blue waters of Lake Macatawa, this towering sand dune is a spectacular viewing spot over 150 feet high! A motorized quest for color could take you through blazing backroads to Saugatuck Dunes State Park with its miles of breathtaking Great Lakes shoreline. (Psst... the Holland Visitors Bureau has maps of the best fall foliage routes).
