Craft Show

Spread throughout the campus will be over 150 craft booths selling original country crafts, wood working, clothing, glass works, and much more.

Kids Zone

One entire area of the campus is transformed into the Kids Zone, complete with LaSertoma’s Pumpkin Patch.


Fallfest visitors can sit under the Winter Haven campus’s shady canopy of ancient oaks and listen to many talented musical groups. They can also stroll to the Fine Arts Gallery in the WFA building and admire the decorative quilt show and watch a quilt being made.

Police & EMS Demonstrations

In another area, Polk State College’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS) program will stage their Team Day. Paramedic students will encounter a simulated crash scene and be tested on their emergency response skills. Other vehicles and demos from various fire and EMS agencies will also be featured at this area of Fallfest. Nearby, various police agencies will perform a variety of captivating demonstrations.

Pumpkin Patch

Many student organizations also participate and raise funds from the sale of food or other items. The proceeds of LaSertoma’s Pumpkin Patch sales go to many of their charitable endeavors.


Polk State College’s various athletic teams and clubs will sell hot dogs, hamburgers, other goodies, and soft drinks. Tables will be set up in the center of the Winter Haven campus.

Haunted House

A big hit every year is the Haunted House. Once again, the Physical Therapist Assistant students will be converting their classroom into a spooky place full of ghosts and goblins!
