It’s decorative gourd season, y’all—pumpkin spice is wafting through the air, and pumpkins are dotted all over farm fields. Celebrate the autumn harvest by meandering through a corn maze, eating some seasonal treats, and admiring nature’s changing colors. For more ideas on how to lean into the season, check out our complete guide to fall events.


Bauman's Harvest Festival
List Among the various activities at Bauman's annual harvest festival, you can find your way through winding mazes, shoot some apples through a cannon and watch them explode, or climb to the top of pumpkin hill. If enjoying apple season is your main objective, indulge in seasonal treats like Bauman's famous apple cider donuts, take a tour of the Bauman cidery, and sample some fresh-pressed cider.
Bauman’s Farm and Garden, Gervais (Through Oct 29)

Frog Pond Farm Pumpkin Patch
List Get up close and personal with over 80 animals of 15 different species at this Wilsonville farm, starting at the pumpkin patch, where you’ll find free-roaming llamas(!) There's over 20 different fun farm activities for the autumn season to enjoy, with donuts and donut holes from Deliciosa to keep the family fueled. Sadly, the spooky farm walk is not happening this year, as the trail is undergoing maintenance and improvements, but they promise it’ll be back in 2024, scarier than ever.
Frog Pond Farm, Wilsonville (Through Oct 29)

Lee Farms Fall Harvest Festival
List Embrace autumn at the seventh-generation farm's harvest festival, which includes hayrides, a corn maze and hay maze, animal viewing pens, and access to the farm grounds. Lee Farms also boasts over 27 different varieties of pumpkins in their patches and a selection of scratch-made treats, including their famous apple cider donuts.
Lee Farms, Tualatin (Through Oct 29)

Packer Orchards Fall Festival
List This family farm has been around since 1920 and is known for packing their fresh fruit into baked goods of all sorts. Visit the farm for an activity-rich fall festival featuring a corn maze, pumpkin patch, giant corn pit, giant hay slide, farm animals, autumnal treats like caramel apples and apple cider donuts, and more.
Packer Orchards, Hood River (Through Oct 29)

Plumper Pumpkin Patch Fall Festival
List Listen, we already love this Plumper Pumpkin Patch for the name alone (say it three times fast!), but the fact that it was once named one of the top 10 pumpkin patches in the nation by MSN sweetens the deal. And, in addition to all the usual suspect fall farm activities, they have a hobbit house (!) for kiddos to explore.
Plumper Pumpkin Patch and Tree Farm, Rock Creek (Through Oct 29)

Roloff Farms Pumpkin Festival
List Roloff Farms, as seen on TLC's Little People, Big World, only opens to the public once a year—during pumpkin season. As you explore the grounds, don't miss the country store (located in a 100-year old restored barn), train rides and wagon tour rides, a scenic trail walk, and of course, pumpkins of every shape and size.
Roloff Farms, Hillsboro (Through Oct 29)

Bella Organic Farm Pumpkin Patch & Corn Maze
List Every fall, Bella Organic Farms makes a statement with their corn maze, and this year they're targeting gun violence with "a simple message of love from a simple farmer.” Enjoy a hot cup of apple cider over a game of trivia about the maze, and compete with your family and friends inside the maze to win a Clue-inspired puzzle. Starting October 1, you can hitch a free hayride over to the pumpkin patch to pick out your own gourd for carving, painting, or simply placing on your porch for max autumnal vibes. If you're a thrill seeker, stop by after dark on Fridays and Saturdays to experience their haunted corn maze.
Bella Organic Farm, Sauvie Island (Through Oct 31)

Fall Harvest Celebration
List Topaz Farm is busting out all of the autumnal and pastoral vibes for its annual celebration of the fall harvest. Weekdays are free, but on weekends, the farm is reducing crowds by charging $10 per person (if you buy in advance online, otherwise it’s $15–which will grant you access to sunflower mazes in early October, sorghum mazes (a more sustainable option than corn), hayrides and a hay pyramid, pumpkin patches, and more.
Topaz Farm, Sauvie Island (Through Oct 31)

Liepold Farms Fall Festival
List Though this farm is located in Boring, their fall festival is anything but! With this year's theme of "Under The Sea," there's loads to do: a corn maze with a dead end challenge, an apple slingshot, a scenic hayride where you'll take in some farm history and views of Mt. Hood, a festival-wide scavenger hunt, and much more.
Liepold Farms, Boring (Through Oct 31)

The MAiZE at the Pumpkin Patch
List Shout "It's corn!!!" while exploring almost two miles of pathways through the famous MAiZE on Sauvie Island. This premier destination for fall enthusiasts pays homage to its quarter century of business with this year's "25 years" design. The maze has two parts: warm up with the "easy" section before tackling the more difficult part, and don't forget your boots—it can get muddy out there.
The Pumpkin Patch, Sauvie Island (Through Oct 31)

Oregon Heritage Farms Fall Season
List Apples are king at this fourth generation-owned and operated orchard, but there are also pumpkins ripe for the picking at a "less mess" pumpkin patch run by the Hillsboro High School Spartan baseball team as part of their fall fundraiser. Pick up some apples by the pound and don't miss the farm's succulent apple treats, including mini apple cider donuts, apple cider slushies, and caramel apples.
Oregon Heritage Farms, Hillsboro (Through Nov 12)
