Halloween is just over a month away, and we are officially into pumpkin season. Places to get pumpkins around the Denver metro area aren’t hard to find, but if you want to take your pumpkin hunting to the next level, a short drive from Denver to Erie, Colorado may be necessary this year! 

Anderson Farms in Erie not only has the biggest pumpkin patch in Colorado, but the farm also has a bunch of other attractions and fun activities that the whole family can enjoy.  

The farm covers over 25 acres and you’ll find 70 different varieties of pumpkins, squash, and gourds in it! They give you a ride to the pumpkin patch in a wagon pulled by an antique Oliver tractor. You can pick your pumpkins then you can re-enter the Fall Festival to enjoy the rest of the attractions.

If you don’t want to attend the Fall Festival, but just want some pumpkins, you can pick up a pumpkin for yourself at “Pumpkinland” instead. “Pumpkinland” is an area set up near the parking lot to shop for prepicked pumpkins without entering the festival.

But the Fall Festival is spectacular, there’s a cornfield maze that you can walk through during the day or night and there’s another maze on the property called Terror in the Corn that is haunted. 
There are farm animals that you can pet, pedal go-karts a barrel train your kiddos can ride on, and tons of other kid and family friendly attractions as well. 

The Fall Festival usually sells out, so book your tickets for it here.
