Are you on the lookout for pumpkin patches near Wichita, KS? Are you looking for corn mazes, gourds, hay-rack rides, and other fall activities in or around the Air Capital? Well you have come to the right website, my friend!
Every year we want to show you where to find great pumpkin patches in Wichita KS and the surrounding area of our river city. Scroll down to see Our Pumpkin Patch Party List!
Whether you only want pumpkin patches in Wichita or just one of the big corn mazes the great ICT is known for. We have some awesome choices in this post! Many of these patches have a wide variety of pumpkins to select from as you’d expect.
For experiences and traditions that make it more fun for you and the kiddos, you’ll of course want to find a place that has those additional activities; such as a corn maze, hay rack ride, or maybe even a haunted hay rack ride for you and the older kids.
If you are on a tight budget, there are great options to save you money and still have a fun experience picking out a pumpkin and making those great memories. After all, a pumpkin from a farm is much cooler and more exciting than picking one up from Dillions or Walmart.
Many pumpkin patches and corn mazes generally open in mid-September. Some opened a bit sooner, but if you are reading after this update, you only have a couple weeks left to hit a patch!
So get started planning fun memories with those little bundles of joy! Trust me when I opine that kids love a hay rack ride and yours like spending time with you! Also, picking their own pumpkin at harvest time can be a neat experience for them!
The pumpkin patches presented below offer similar features and activities. This list is not in any particular order. They are all good choices!
• Applejack Pumpkin Patch-
10007 SW. Indianola Rd • Augusta, KS 67010
Less than 25 minutes away from the East side of Wichita
Tuesdays-Fridays 9:00-3:00 (closed Mondays) Saturdays 10:00-6:00 PM Sundays 12:00-6:00 PM
Just outside the East Wichita border, The Applejack Pumpkin Patch kicks off our list because they seem to have all the goods!
They have train rides, corn and milo mazes, tractor-pulled hay rack rides, previously picked produce, refreshment stand, picnic area, petting zoo, and too many more fun things to list. After all, this is a blog not a book!
I will have a link to their website and all the other great pumpkin patches as well, so you can get more information and look at more pictures if you’d like!
The fields at Applejack are filled with those pumpkin treasures! The petting zoo has goats, rabbits, chickens, and fish. You can feed the goats and the fish so be sure to bring some quarters to buy the chum!
Have some refreshments like funnel cakes, slushies, and shaved ice. Families are encouraged to play together in this impressive outdoor, low-tech, farm oriented setting.
Whether you’re interested in a conventional outing in order to find your very own pumpkin or just wanting a local family adventure, this patch has you covered. Have a blast on their zip-line, rat racer, hay forts, tire swings, and paintball shooting!
Be sure to check out The Gourdinator! Launch their pumpkin cannon, pumpkin guns, and slingshots (all of them safe). There’s plenty of fun for the whole group! We could probably do a whole post on each of these great pumpkin farms.

Cedar Creek Farm and Pumpkin Patch

Maize, Kansas 67101
(Northwest side of Wichita, just off of K96 and 119th St. West.)
Starting September 21st-October 31st
We welcome the Smith family as the newest local pumpkin patch to the ICT area! Explore seven acres of hand-planted pumpkins. They offer what they describe as a wholesome family environment for you to unplug and reconnect with your loved ones.
One thing that immediately stood out to me was that they have a wheel chair accessible hay-rack for your friend or family members to easily join the fun.
I then read somewhere that they’re the only patch in town that has a lift. They are certainly the first one I have seen and I think that is awesome of them!
Aside from the unique variety and and great selection of pumpkins, they have plenty of other fun things you would expect for all ages to enjoy. They have a corn maze, petting zoo, barrel train, pony rides, hay bale climbing, and playgrounds for all the little ones.
They even have fire pits to rent as well.

Technically they are not a real pumpkin farm, but they will have a descent selection of those orange treasures. They celebrate with kid friendly activities, characters, inflatables, waterfall light show, a 3-D maze, Fire Performers, and last but not least, animals.
All with a bit more spooky theme than the farms. If the Halloween atmosphere is more of what you are looking for this might be for you then.
Guests of all ages will like watching their performers twirl, throw, and yes, even breathe fire.
Kids of all ages can visit their pumpkin patch to find the perfect pumpkin (pumpkins are an additional charge).
Warm snacks, warm drinks, tricks, treats, and even free hay-rack rides. Plenty of creepy and ghoulish scenery if that’s your thing.
There is plenty to do at Tanganyika!
