Saturday, October 2

Kick-off the fall festivities at the Lake Nona Town Harvest on Saturday, October 2 from 4 – 10 p.m. in Lake Nona Town Center. Grab a gourd-geous pumpkin for your holiday porch decor, try your luck at the pie making contest, spend time crafting with the kids, or take a fall photo shoot with an oversized tractor and bales of hay. Arrive with an appetite because seasonal food and beverages will also be available.

Saturday, October 23

Join us for the first-ever Graveyard Smash in Lake Nona Town Center from 5 – 10 p.m. Bring out the entire family for a creepy candy crawl, grave rave dance party, and an interactive display on The Beacon. You might even run into some spooky spirits throughout the night.


Sunday, October 10

The 12th annual Ride for Ronald event is back! Join the Ride/5K in-person on Sunday, October 10 or you can participate virtually and ride anywhere to support Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida.

All race routes will begin and end in Lake Nona Town Center. Walkers and runners will hit the pavement along Lake Nona Blvd. passing the all-new Lake Nona Performance Club and UCF Lake Nona Hospital before circling back to the Town Center. Bikers can choose from 3.5-mile family fun ride along Tavistock Lakes Blvd. through Laureate Park, a 10-mile ride down to Narcoossee Rd., or challenge themselves with a 30-mile or 60-mile route that ventures south into Osceola County.

Each participant will be provided with a personal fundraising page to benefit the thousands of families Ronald McDonald House supports across Central Florida each year including our local location at Nemours Children’s Hospital.


Thursday, November 11

The fall events season will culminate on Thursday, November 11, with an honored tradition as the community gathers for a Veterans Day celebration to pay tribute to the local veteran community.

While there’s a lot to look forward to this fall, the fun will continue through the end of the year with the return of Lake Nona’s one-of-a-kind annual holiday celebration, Oh What Fun! We’ll share more details as the holiday season approaches.
