Do DC with Kids

Every corn maze, pumpkin patch and fall festival in the Washington DC Metro Area that you could ever want and then some

Day Trip

Every corn maze, pumpkin patch and fall festival in the Washington DC Metro Area that you could ever want and then some

It’s fall y’all! So hear’s a post just for you of THIRTY different places where you can delight in activities from pumpkin picking to hay rides to posing with a giant sponge-bob (super random, right?).

I learned two things putting this post together:

  1. There’s a ton of fall fairs, harvest festivals, pumpkin parties, whatever you want to call them in this area.
  2. Apparently pig racing is a thing.

Below you will find a list of fall activities in the DC Metro Area, if an event isn’t on here it’s not for lack of Googling. Anyway, the list is organized by proximity to Washington DC so I hope you enjoy this season of farm fun. Don’t forget to tag your photos #DCBabyOnTheMove

Picking a pumpkin the easy way at Millers Farms

A few tips

  • At this point I’ve made the trip out to a few farms, you should always stop and use the restroom somewhere before you arrive. Sometimes farms don’t have public bathrooms or having crowded facilities which might just be port-a-potties.
  • Always pack a lunch, snacks and water.
  • Call before you go to make sure they’re open.

This was Ooey last year, so little, checking out the animals at Millers Farms
