2020 Guide to the Best Pumpkin Patches in AZ

0

This year is definitely going to look different than previous Falls, but we all should celebrate the cooler temperatures after making it through the hottest summer ever. Time to pack up the family (plus masks!) and get all those fabulous instagram pics posted.

One of our favorite Fall traditions is visiting pumpkin patches located all over AZ. Whether you are looking to get out of town and enjoy “real” Fall weather, or just wanting to make a day out of it, here is everything you need to know about the best pumpkin patches in Arizona!

Please visit each Pumpkin Patch website before planning your trip, because after the last 6 months we all know “things” can change quickly.pumpkin patches
