The Charming Pumpkin Festival In Iowa That Will Make Your Fall Complete

Halloween is fast-approaching here in Iowa, and if you haven’t visited a local pumpkin patch yet, you should. While you will find pumpkin patches across our beautiful state ablaze with fall foliage, there is a little-known pumpkin patch nestled just an hour southeast of Des Moines that’s calling your name. And while this charming destination is worth a visit anytime this fall, mark your calendar for October 13 and 14 to visit during the Annual Pumpkin Festival.

Pierce’s Pumpkin Patch is located at 2491 IA-14, Chariton, IA 50049, and is open daily from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. through the month of October. The annual pumpkin festival, however, is held only October 13th and 14th. Visit their website to learn more.

If you prefer apples to pumpkins, you’ll want to visit one of Iowa’s best apple orchards. You might also be interested in discovering the best places to check out Iowa’s fall foliage this year.
