"Shades of Autumn" is the annual fall festival at Stade's Farm & Market. Located in McHenry County, it's is a great place to bring the whole family to enjoy nature's bounty, plus great entertainment, during the most beautiful time of the year. During Shades of Autumn, you can experience a day on the farm filled with family fun and forever memories.
Stade's Farm & Market has been hosting this fall festival for 20 years! Not only are pumpkins waiting to be picked out in the patch, the hayride back and forth is fun too! In the petting zoo, you can play with some of their four-legged friends, including goats, a pony, a turtle, bunnies, Mama Llama and an alpaca. Corn mazes will test your skills, and the pumpkin barrel train is a big hit with the little ones. There are plenty of children's activities to enjoy at Stade's. The pumpkin cannon demonstrations are a "blast" to watch while enjoying some of your favorite festival foods from local vendors. At Shades of Autumn, the farm is fully stocked with in-season fresh-picked produce and all the fall decorations you might be looking for!
