Corn Mazes and Fall Festivals in Polk County + Central Florida

Fall Festival Corn Maze Near Me

Are you looking for a corn maze, a working farm, or just want to get outside for a fall afternoon? Interested in a pumpkin festival or pumpkin patch? What about a haunted corn maze?

We’ve got a list of the best fall festivals and corn mazes in Polk County and across Central Florida. Below you’ll find corn mazes near Lakeland, Plant City, Tampa, and Orlando. Be sure to check directly with the farms on the day you plan to visit – they are all subject to last-minute closures due to weather.

Interested in visiting a farm or petting zoo this fall? We also have a separate article on Kid-Friendly Farms and Petting Zoos in Central Florida that are open year-round.

Editor’s Note: Here in Central Florida, there is some confusion around the term “Pumpkin Patch.” While up north and in the midwest this usually means a visit to a farm to pick out a pumpkin and enjoy fall activities, pumpkin patches in Central Florida are typically just pumpkins on the front lawn of a church because pumpkins aren’t traditionally grown in Florida.

Are you looking for:

A few tips for visiting a Halloween corn maze in Florida: Remember that all of the farms and fall festivals listed below are outdoors. Wear closed-toe shoes, apply sunscreen, bring cash and water. Activities are weather-dependent and heavy rain can close a farm for multiple days, so check their website or Facebook the day you plan to visit. This post includes affiliate links.

Please check directly with event organizers for specific dates, discounts, current ticket prices, advance registration, and any last-minute changes. While we do our best to provide accurate information, we include an outside link so you can verify the details for all events and activities.
