Your Guide to Pumpkin Patches Around Boise


In the blink of an eye, fall has embraced Boise and turned refreshing lavender lemonades into warming chai teas, blanketed trees in yellow, red, and everything in between. The weather threatens to bring winter the city, whether you feel ready or not, and a growing layer of snow covers the surrounding mountains.

Luckily, there is no shortage of events in the Treasure Valley to enjoy the last bit of Fall. Ranging from Halloween parties to Oktoberfest celebrations, special screenings of scary movies at the Egyptian Theatre to historic tours of the Idaho Penitentiary, all Idahoans can find something to do during this time of year.

While every event features its own fun experience, pumpkin patches in particular embody the essence of Fall a way that nothing else. With corn mazes, hot chocolate, pumpkin picking, and hay bales, we are spoiled enough to have a variety of pumpkin patches and corn mazes around Boise.


Here’s a list of the Pumpkin Patches in and around the Boise area to go to for harvest fun:
