5 Reasons to add Charm Days to your Fall 2023 Bucket List


It’s no question that autumn in Amish Country is a crowd favorite! Locals and visitors alike would agree that the crisp air, beautiful foliage, and local events make October a great time to enjoy the peaceful Ohio countryside.

October in Amish Country brings more than moderate weather and pretty leaves! Every year since 1982, Charm Days has become a tradition for residents of the area and an attraction for visitors.

Here’s why you should add this event to your fall “bucket list”!


1. Community Building

In a tight-knit community like ours, there is a great emphasis placed on helping one another and looking out for those in need. During Charm Days weekend, there are many opportunities to contribute to local fundraisers and causes! Some food stands are by donation and benefits like auctions and raffles take place all weekend. These funds raised go to local causes or families who can use financial support.


2. Unique Events and Family Friendly Activities

Charm Days is home to events you might not see anywhere else! Don’t miss the Wooly Worm Derby, Flea Markets, Equine shows and more. Live Entertainment, parades and a Field & Trail Challenge are also part of the weekend's activities. 


3. Delicious Food

What could be better than hot, buttered noodles, BBQ chicken and fresh baked goods? Delicious comfort food is not in short supply during Charm Days. 

4. Merchant Sales and Prizes

Local Charm Merchants are known to have great deals and prizes to celebrate the weekend! Shop during Charm Days for great savings on a wide variety of products.


5. Colorful Scenery

Mid-October is prime season for “leaf peeping” in Northeast Ohio! The rolling hills of this area will feature gorgeous colors on your road trip to Charm, Ohio. What’s better than celebrating friends and community against the beautiful backdrop of a fall color palate?


We invite you to celebrate a 40 year history of community and tradition with us during Charm Days, October 12-13!
