We love fall on Baton Rouge Moms! We get a taste of cooler days (hopefully on the horizon) pumpkins, cute costumes and plenty of fun events. There is plenty to do in and around Baton Rouge during the fall season and we have compiled our list of fun fall pumpkin patch & corn mazes! Don’t miss our favorite spots around the Red Stick to find your perfect pumpkin, create some fall family memories and take a hayride or two. As with previous years, we have included events and activities taking place in Baton Rouge and beyond.
While every effort has been made to ensure this information is accurate, we encourage you to contact the patch directly to verify that all details are correct and have not changed. If you have information on a Pumpkin Patch or corn maze that we missed, please let us know!
Baton Rouge Moms will always bring you the best in Family Friendly events in Baton Rouge and beyond. We have gathered the latest list of Family Friendly events for fall festivities, thanks to our sponsor, Smith Shanklin Sosa!

The Pumpkin Patch is the largest mission project at JUMC. All net proceeds are distributed to local missions, plus help fund our youth mission trip. Last year we were able to donate thousands of dollars – all because of the volunteers willing to work the patch. Plus, with the Kick-Off event, new people can experience JUMC.
