This page provides a detailed list of Alberta's pumpkin patches, corn mazes, hay rides and other Halloween farm stuff!! Click here to see the listings of pumpkin patches, corn mazes and farms in Alberta or just scroll down the page! Some are farms, where you take a hay ride out into the field, others are elaborate farm stands with mountains of pumpkins and other activities and some are simple roadside stands. All should have loads of pumpkins to choose from. To really make it fun for your kids, look for those that have the extra activities, like a corn maze, spook house, or hayride. There is usually a small fee for the mazes (of course, the more elaborate mazes tend to charge more. Hayrides are often free. ALWAYS call before you go to confirm all information, they don't always report changes to me!

Alberta Regions / Areas Map
There seems to be no commonly agreed-upon way to organize or subdivide Alberta, so I've roughly adopted the Indian regions map, as it appears to group areas by population centers as well as geography.
Yellow = Edmonton area
Light Orange / Tan = Camrose-Drumheller area
Light blue = Red Deer area
Gray = Calgary area
Blue-purple = Southeast Alberta, including Medicine Hat and Lethbridge
Blue = Northwest Alberta, including Grand Prairie and Athabasca
Green = Northeast Alberta, including Fort McMurray
Orange = Southwest Alberta, including Banff, Jasper and Rocky Mountain House
