Family fun pumpkin patch, corn maze, hayrides, farm animals and more!
Recommended by: Kari the Art Teacher
I never knew a farm could be so fun! We went to pick out a pumpkin, but we ended up doing so much more. They have this canon they use to launch pumpkins. It was wicked! I never saw a pumpkin splat like that before. And the Barnyard 500 was awesome! I raced my Dad around the track in a go kart and won!
Anderson Farms is the best pumpkin patch and fall activity venue in the Denver area. The most popular events are held in the fall, but many events occur during the spring and summer. Field trips can be booked in the spring, summer, and fall. The farm can be rented out year-round for birthdays and weddings. Onsite catering is even available for reserved events.
Fall Fest is one of the highlights of Anderson Farms. It starts in September and runs through Halloween. It’s the perfect family adventure for the season. It’s packed full of small town charm and community fun. Admission to Fall Fest includes twelve awesome events with entertainment that will capture the entire family. The longest running corn maze in Colorado is located on the farm. It spans 30 acres. You can make it a day trip or bring your flashlight to explore the maze after dark. It is noteworthy to mention the maze is never haunted.
While pumpkins are an additional cost, an old-fashioned hayride to the pumpkin patch is included in Fall Fest admission. Anderson Farms has 30 acres of patch with over 26 selections of pumpkins. You’re sure to find the pumpkin of your dreams!
Pumpkin launching is a highlight for the kids. A pressurized canon is used to hurl small pumpkins. They can go as far as a quarter of a mile. The Barnyard 500 is a fun way to burn off energy as you race man powered go karts around a dirt track.
Two special events arrive on the farm to celebrate Halloween: Terror in the Corn, a haunted hayride and ghost town; and Zombie Paintball Hunt. The farm’s website is a must-see when planning a trip. They keep you updated on the weather, their time schedule, and event line-up.

|Jacob Tip: Halloween festivities date back to the Celts and their ancient festival of Samhain. Samhain signified the end of the Celtic year and ushered in a new beginning. Today we celebrate Halloween with spooky figures, pumpkin carving, and trick-or-treating.|
