Lansdale's top fairs, festivals and events

ASHER'S CHOCOLATES ANNUAL FALL FEST
For 20 years, the Asher's family has welcomed guests to its fall celebration, held on the front lawn of the candy maker's Souderton factory. This free event has live music, face-painting clowns, a strolling magician, moon bounce, raffles and free hot dogs and drinks. The Asher's Chocolates mascots - Twist and Mr. Jelly Belly - are available for meet-and-greets and selfies.
Morgan Log House
The 300-year-old Morgan Log House is always an incredible sight to see, but there is nothing like seeing it by candlelight. Each December, the historic home celebrates the holidays with an evening tour by candlelight.
