Chicago Pumpkin Patch Guide

It’s pumpkin time! The weather hasn’t been very autumn-y lately, but the leaves are changing and Halloween is approaching. Grab those sweaters (or maybe sunscreen) and spend the day at a Chicago pumpkin patch choosing the perfect pumpkin for your family and enjoying some autumn farm activities.

Admission prices do NOT include the cost of pumpkins. I do my best to be sure the information is current, accurate information, but it’s always a good idea to double check the website or call before you go.
