Pumpkinland Harvest Festival

The Pumkinland Harvest Festival at Linvilla Orchards, a 300-acre, working family farm, is celebration of the region’s harvest season. Located just 20 minutes outside Philadelphia, Pumpkinland is tailor-made for kids. They’ll love everything from the 100-ton pumpkin patch that greets you at the driveway to the huge, oversized scarecrows they’ll see from the road as you pull up — don’t worry, they’re not too scary! You can hop on a hayride to go apple-picking, or just stay on the ride and tour the farm. There are farm animals to greet, a corn maze to get lost in, and straw bales to climb on — not to mention the mouth-watering smell of hot apple pie. You’ll also enjoy live music, pony rides, a jack-o-lantern display, face-painting, food and more. Pumpkinland lasts throughout the picking season, from early fall until just after Halloween.
