Pumpkin Patches and Apple Orchards with Fall Fun (with Map!)

FallOutdoor Activities

Halloween weekend marks the end of jack-o-lantern season, and most of these Chicagoland pumpkin patches are gearing up for one last big weekend of fall fun. There are so many spots to visit, from little pumpkin patches where you head to the field and pick your own pumpkin to wash off afterwards to big farm destinations with corn mazes, jumping pillows, and more. We’ve updated our list with even more pumpkin patches in northern Illinois!

Rain can make the fields muddy, so be sure to wear boots or bring a change of shoes for the car. This article is sponsored by Siegel’s Cottonwood Farm.
