Hayrides, pumpkin patches, corn mazes, and farm festivals encompass everything good about fall.
When the summer heat fades and leaves begin to change color, you know that it’s time to embrace everything from fall farm festivals to pumpkin patches. There are many evenings spent on hayrides, picking and carving pumpkins, and drinking fresh apple cider with friends and family.
These are some of the best Baltimore pumpkin patches and fall festivals in and around Charm City.

Summers Farm Fall Festival

Summers Farm has hosted their Fall Festival for over 25 years and it’s one of my most anticipated family events because there are over 45 activities – it’s guaranteed fun for visitors of any age!
I suggest getting there early and taking some pictures in the pumpkin patch before the crowds arrive; there’s a pumpkin train that takes guests to and from the pumpkin patch. There are also wagon rides, giant slides, face painting, a corn maze, and so many games.
Spend hours with the barnyard animals, and once it gets dark, cozy around the campfire and enjoy the fireworks display.
