Sept. 12, 2022 Update

Welcome to the weekend update from Lynchburg Macaroni Kid! In advance of every weekend, we share the top family-friendly events in the Lynchburg area and beyond. There’s no time like now to make family memories!

With local schools all back in session, weekends offer families an opportunity to recharge from their busy weeks. Fall festival season kicks into high gear this weekend and many of the area’s pumpkin patches and corn mazes are open for the season too!

Lynchburg Art Festival, Summer Sunset Festival Series at the Bedford YMCA, Super Hero Saturday at River Ridge Mall, Sunflower Festival at Beaver Dam Farm, Open Farm Days at Lottie J. Farm, Layman Family Farms Fall Festival, Yoders’ Farm Corn Maze, and National Gymnastics Day at Dynamic Gymnastics are just a few of the great events happening this weekend!

This weekend’s forecast is almost perfect for September, with sunny skies, highs in the 80s and lows in the 50s. So far, there’s no chance of rain this weekend, but that’s always subject to change, so check with venues before heading to outdoor events!

Whatever weather the weekend brings, there’s plenty of chances for family fun!

Whether you’re looking for toddler fun, family events, or date night events, let Lynchburg Macaroni Kid help you Find Your Family Fun® this weekend!

Check with the venue in advance as some events may be canceled or postponed due to weather or other concerns.

We’ll help you plan ahead to Find Your Family Fun® with our FREE Lynchburg Macaroni Kid newsletter and event calendar which publishes weekly on Thursdays at 7 AM.

Some of these events require advance tickets or registration, so check before you go. Click on each link for more details about the event.
