Welcome fall with some outdoor activity where you can see the changing leaves and feel the crisp air. Here’s a list of popular Kansas City pumpkin patches, corn mazes and hayrides we know are happening, along with any discounts we could find.
This year, many fall activities in Kansas City are being done a bit different but can still be fun for all ages.
Some events may require reservations and the number of tickets could be limited to ensure everyone is spaced out as needed. Fortunately, a lot of local fun centering around pumpkin patches, corn mazes and hayrides are outdoors so it’s a little easier to spread out. If you are indoors, you’ll likely need to wear a mask depending upon what the rules are at that time.
Be sure to follow the links for more information. We strive to keep everything current, but things change rapidly, or events get cancelled. If you have questions about safety measures or requirements that aren’t addressed here, please contact the venue or organizer directly.
Check back often as we’ll be adding new venues and details to this list as the information is available.
Also, be sure to subscribe to Kansas City on the Cheap daily emails (just one a day and we don’t sell your information). That way you’ll know about local free and cheap events and activities happening all year long.
