A Guide to Some of the Best Venues in New England for Your Fall Event

A Guide to Some of the Best Venues in New England for Your Fall Event

Was there anyone who described an autumn in New England better than Henry David Thoreau? Born in Massachusetts, Thoreau was most famously known for his essays on nature, civil disobedience, and minimalism. His final major literary work was an essay on fall leaves called "October, or Autumnal Tints." In this piece, Thoreau wrote about the bold and vibrant colors that make New England in autumn the idyllic setting for conferences, weddings, business meetings, and more.

We highly encourage you to read “October, or Autumnal Tints” if you want to learn why fall in New England is perfect. Or better yet! Experience it yourself at one of these venues below. You can also use our venue finder tool to find a venue in a New England city or town near you.
