Fall for Your Favorites: PA Chamber Celebrates Autumn in Pennsylvania with “Best of Fall” Competition

32 of PA’s Treasured Fall Traditions Face-Off in Bracket Contest Beginning Tuesday, Oct. 3


In excitement for the start of the Keystone State’s premier season, the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry announced that it is launching a social media-based competition in which the public will vote among 32 of Pennsylvania’s best-loved traditions, experiences, and treats to determine the Pennsylvania’s “Best of Fall” champion. The “Best of Fall” nominees included in the tournament will face-off in a single-elimination bracket format, with winners chosen through public voting over the next three weeks on the PA Chamber’s X (formerly known as Twitter) and Instagram pages.


“The PA Chamber knows that the commonwealth has a lot to offer, not only in our natural beauty but in what’s made here that people know and love. And at no other time of year is that truer than now, when the leaves are at their peak and there’s a festival, football game, or signature food item around every corner. When it comes to fall, Pennsylvania simply does it better than any other state – and we’re ready to celebrate it!” said PA Chamber President and CEO Luke Bernstein.


According to a new study, Pennsylvania is among the five best places in the United States to enjoy the fall season.  From the colorful leaves dotting our landscape (FACT – we have the longest autumn foliage season in the world!); to the camaraderie felt across hundreds of community festivals (FACT – we have the most fall festivals planned in the nation!); to the fall brands made here but loved nationwide; fall in Pennsylvania is a time of celebration, culture, and fun.


Voting will begin Tuesday, October 3, at Noon.
