I am looking for ideas on how to do a psalm reading as an activity at a church fall festival.

Hi Barbara, what a nice idea.
Some thoughts: simple costume either from the time of Christ: robe, sandles, belt and have the psalms written on scrolls. Or from midieval times:tunic, leggings, cap, etc. Or maybe from the Puritan times, you'll have to go looking for a preacher or town crier type costume. With appropriate simple background built for the reader to stand by
Find psalms of thanksgiving to read: Psl.34,Psl.30,Psl.66,Psl, Psl.92, Psalms 145,146,147,148,149,150 to name a few.
Schedule three or four volunteers to read at certain times throughout your festival
Always give opportunity at end of each reading segment for prayer and salvation... people are really going through it right now and will appreciate the opportunity for someone to pray with them.
Be sure you have an experienced and caring prayer team ready to support the invitation
Hope it goes well and that you'll post pictures of what you did!
How about Psalm 96 because the last several verses talk about a rejoicing earth. Fall with all of its beauty is praising God. You could have participants find fall leaves to add to an outdoor altar area and read the psalm every so often when people gather or have it on a piece of paper to take home. Folks can give specific thanks for the beauty they see in prayer or out loud.
