Bandy's Pumpkin Patch

Mon, Sep 16 – Thu, Oct 31, 2024 • 9:00am - 8:00pm

15020 Pumpkin Patch Road, Johnston City, IL 62951

Bandy's Pumpkin Patch features mazes, inflatable games, face painting, hayrides and other great activities for the family.

Open annually from mid-September through October 31st, this fun fall destination is host to many family fun activities. Walk the corn maze, ride the hayride, slide down the slides, or play in the corn pile in the barn. If you think you're a sure shot, take aim with the corn cannon, or just sit back by the fire and drink a hot chocolate. Grab a snack from the concession stand (try the sweet rock candy) before heading home with the perfect Southern Illinois-grown pumpkin!

The play barn offers a 20'x30' bounce pad, a giant corn pit, dual slides, and a variety of games to play! Suited for children 12 and under.

They have carved a new hayride route out at the patch that winds through a decorated forest before heading out to the pumpkin patch! Our hayrides have an ADA wheelchair ramp that leads straight into our modified wagons to allow everyone to go on the hayride! They have had accessible hayrides since 2021!

Shoot the corn cannon! These air-powered cannons fire an ear of corn at over 200mph at a target. It is a simple squeeze trigger, but smaller children will need adult supervision and interaction for aiming as the cannons themselves are heavy. There will be a Bandy's employee there to operate these cannons for your group.

There is also a fire pit for Smore's and hotdogs. They can supply an area for roasting hot dogs, marshmallows, or S'mores over a fire that we will keep burning for you.
