Fall brings about all the best things in life: great temperatures, pleasant scents, and of course, pumpkin patches. Some great family memories can be made by visiting these fall festivals every year, so I’ve put together a quick guide of the best pumpkin patches in Colorado!

Pumpkin Patches in Denver and North of Denver
Anderson Farms – Best Pumpkin Patch in Colorado
6728 County Road 3-1/4, Erie
Anderson Farms is a big deal in the world of pumpkin patches. Its sheer size is impressive, with the corn maze alone being 25 acres.
Anderson Farms created the first corn maze in Colorado in 1999. What was once just hayrides and a pumpkin patch now offers so much more.
Activities include slides, tractor tires, pumpkin canons, wagon rides, corn maze, pedal carts, jump pads, and more!
Additional activities for purchase include gem mining, henna tattoos, pumpkin painting, mini escape rooms, and more.
Tickets start at $17 for weekdays, $27 for weekends. Kids 3 & under are free. Fire pits can be reserved for $75

Rocky Mountain Pumpkin Ranch
9059 Ute Highway/CO-66, Longmont
Rocky Mountain Pumpkin Ranch is a great place to pick pumpkins and has plenty of fall entertainment all month long.
On Saturdays and Sundays:
The great thing is admission is FREE. After you’re inside, you can pay for exactly what you want (and not for what you don’t!) Purchase tickets for $1 each. Each attraction is between 1-10 tickets and may include a train ride, petting zoo, pony ride, slides, pumpkin painting, corn maze, and more.
If you visit on a weekday, you may get a little more bang for your buck. Weekday visitors purchase a wristband ($12.50) which gets them unlimited activities. These include a few choices of mazes, an obstacle course, visiting the animals, and visiting the pumpkin patch (visit to the pumpkin patch is free, costs $ to purchase).
Maize in the City
10451 McKay Road, Thornton
Maize in the City is another great pumpkin patch in Colorado. Like the patch above, admission is free and the visitor only pays for each activity they enjoy.
The schedule is a little random. It’s open weekends in October and also some weekdays here and there, so make sure to check the schedule before your visit.
Maize in the City has a large corn maze (over 20 acres!), a mini maze for younger kids, hay bale maze, playground, pumpkin patch, corn kernel box (my kids favorite when they were toddlers!), train, pony ride, bounce pads, and much more!
Many of the basic activities are free (corn kernel box, playground, Jenga, photo ops…) and others have a cost.
Rock Creek Farm
2005 South 112th Street, Broomfield
Rock Creek Farm is the perfect pumpkin patch if you’re looking for something a little more simple.
It doesn’t have 100 activities like many patches these days. But it does have over 6 miles of corn field mazes. Pick from one of the 3 corn mazes or try out the hay bale maze for younger ones.
When you’ve navigated your way out of the maze, check out the large pumpkin patch and pick the perfect pumpkin. You can also stop by and visit the animals on the farm.
General admission is $6. Pumpkins are $7. Corn Maze is $7-$10. Kids 3 & under are free!

Mile High Farms
11 Cavanaugh Rd, Bennett
Mile High Farms is open on Saturdays and Sundays during the month of October. It’s located near Denver just to the east.
This place is a great pumpkin patch in Colorado for all ages. Try out one of the two corn mazes, visit the petting zoo, take a hayride, ride in the barrel cart, play at the playground, and have plenty of photo ops in front of the little surrounding buildings.
Admission will also give you access to the pumpkin patch where each person can pick the pumpkin just right! (Pumpkins are an additional cost.)
Admission is $12-$17 with kids 4 & under being free.

Four Mile Historic Park
715 S Forest St, Denver
Four Mile Historic Park is a great, family-friendly pumpkin patch in Denver. The activities are a little more history-focused (plus some modern fun as well.)
This unique farm offers activities other pumpkin patches don’t. Try your hand at some prairie games from back in the day. Join in an arts and crafts activity. Check out live demonstrations from blacksmiths. Take a tractor ride, pan for gold, and enjoy a face-painting.
An upgraded ticket will also give you access to axe-throwing, a pumpkin to take home, and free parking.
Save a few dollars by purchasing tickets ahead of time online!
Pumpkin Patches South of Denver
Flat Acres Farm
11321 Dransfeldt Rd, Parker
Flat Acres Farm has actually ended their pumpkin patch. I’m including this in case anyone typically makes the trek down to what was an awesome place in fall.
Last year, there was a fire (arson) at the patch. They finished out the season, but this year they are not re-opening. To clarify, the website says they are not reopening because of the amount of time and effort to “facilitate these life changing events.” (So the reason they are closed may or may not have anything to do with the fire last year.)
With the pumpkin festival gone, they do still offer an air soft course and local honey for sale.
Lone Creek Farms
Lone Creek Farms
3879 N State highway 83, Franktown
Lone Creek Farms has quickly climbed up the ladder of best pumpkin patches in Colorado.
Each year, more and more work goes in to adding to this great fall festival.
The amount of activities here are nearly endless, which makes it great for all ages.
Enjoy the huge shark slide, jump pads, pig races, tire swings, farm animals, duck derby, corn kernel box, tire mountain, pedal karts, candy cannon, and so much more.
You can buy extra tickets for additional activities such as axe throwing, the sling shot, a giant zip line, and more.
Oh, and of course there’s a big corn maze.
The pumpkin patch is well run, includes parking, and open Thursday – Sunday beginning in late September.
It is one of the more expensive pumpkin patch admissions in the area.
$21.95- $25.95. No charge for ages 3 & under.
