Corn Maze & Pumpkin Festival at the Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield

Thousands of pumpkins will be ripe for the picking from our 8.5-acre pumpkin patch.  Search for the perfect jack o’ lantern or pumpkin pie gourd for all your Halloween and fall festivities! Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield will be filled with exciting children’s activities and vendors selling handcrafted gifts.  Experience ghost tours of the 1860s historical homestead located on the Chatfield grounds. The homestead includes a working farm complete with goats, chickens and sheep. Also be sure to stop by Deer Creek Discovery, a new children’s play area that features a whimsical tree house and water feature.  After you buy your pumpkins, take them to the free Pumpkin Daycare, so you can walk around and enjoy the rest of the festival.

The Corn Maze at Chatfield is one of the most attended in the nation!  Navigate through 12 feet tall corn on 8 acres of twists and turns ~ don’t worry about getting lost because there are people along the way to help you find your way out. The maze is for all ages and includes activities for the whole family, even a haunted house for the adults & older kiddos.  Visit http://www.botanicgardens.org for more details.
