We had so much fun during our Marana Pumpkin Patch and Farm Festival adventure last year that of course we headed back again this year!
This year my brother and sister-in-law joined us and of course our first stop was picking out pumpkins!
We didn’t go pick out pumpkins last year because the boys were having so much fun with the other activities. This year we decided to hit the pumpkin patch first, so we didn’t miss out again. The boys really enjoyed the wagon ride out to the pumpkin patch and getting to pick their very own pumpkin off the vine!
Admission is $10 for everyone over 30 inches. Admission includes 1 orange pumpkin, corn mazes, wagon ride to the pumpkin patch, petting zoo, straw mountain, children’s play area and pig races.
Kids under 30 inches are free but will have to purchase a pumpkin. When we went opening day, orange pumpkins were $5 and all other pumpkins were $10.
You can also purchase admission for $7 if you don’t want a pumpkin. Peter and I opted for the $7 admission because we didn’t need 4 pumpkins.

Straw Mountain at the Marana Pumpkin Patch & Farm Festival
They updated the facility and added a few additional attractions, my favorite addition is the Straw Mountain. The boys loved climbing it and we snapped a few great pictures. It’s really tall, so it was a little nerve racking following the boys up to the top but they LOVED it!
