Neighborhood Spotlight: Didier Farms Pumpkin Festival

  |     |   Lifestyle

Bright orange leaves, carved pumpkins, warm cozy sweatshirts and hayrides are just a few things that might remind you of fall. Nothing can beat the fall weather here in Illinois. The heat and humidity of summer has subsided and the cold air of winter hasn’t arrived yet. There are many events you can enjoy close to your Vernon Hills home.

Fall is the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors before the cold of winter sets in and Pumpkin Fest at Didier Farms will bring that all to you. 

Pumpkin Fest

Didier Farms is located close to home at 16678 W. Aptakisic Rd, Lincolnshire, Illinois and they hold a wonderful family-friendly event called Pumpkin Fest. Pumpkin Fest starts the last week of September and runs until October 31st when it ends for the year at 4:00pm. They are open daily from 9:00 am-6:00 pm.

There is no admission charge to enter but all activities require tickets which are available to purchase when you arrive. Come and check out the hayrides, pony rides, kids crafts, corn maze, burlap bag slide and more.

The Silly String Asylum is open for you to enter and enjoy a fun event with others and a bottle of silly string. You can feed the birds in the Parakeet Exhibit or check out the animals at the Animal Land Zoo. 

The pig races are held weekdays at 11:00am and weekends at 12:30, 2:30 & 4:30 pm. The tractor drawn hayride will take you through cornfields that are lined with friendly scarecrows. Another hit is the gem mining activity where you are able to pan through soil and find hidden treasures. 

If you work up an appetite you won’t need to worry, they have many food options to suit you. Stop by one of their 5 food stands and find things ranging from pizza, hotdogs, corn dogs and brats to homemade taffy apples, pumpkin pie, hot apple cider and much more. 

From pumpkins to hayrides, you will get a taste of the farm that you cannot get anywhere else.  Didier Farms is a family owned and operated farm since 1912.
