Maryland Holiday Events and Seasonal Activities for Kids and Families

Article Index


Looking for a pumpkin patch or corn maze in Maryland? Here's a list of places to go near Annapolis, Bowie, Baltimore, D.C. or the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Make an afternoon of selecting a pumpkin or just go grab one for your front porch, there are plenty of home grown pumpkins in the fields around Maryland.

Kids can pick your own pumpkins from the field, enjoy a hayride, and in many cases enjoy cider and fresh produce from the farm stand. And for a fun afternoon try finding your way through a corn maze full of twists and turns. Summers Farm in Frederick even has a Taylor Swift Corn maze this year.
