Pumpkin Fest 2022: The Chicagoland Fall Festival Returns for its 32nd Season

Siegel’s Cottonwood Farm Opens Its Annual Pumpkin Fest Sat., Sept. 24th

2022 Corn Maze: Celebrates the iconic “Jurassic Farm” movie series with T-Rex, Triceratops and the Gentle Brontosaurus

Walk into a lost world, and get lost in the hidden prehistoric land of your favorite dinosaurs found only at Siegel’s Cottonwood Farm in Lockport, IL. 

This year’s corn maze displays the larger-than-life entertainment of the “Jurassic Park” movie series, and honors the final film “Jurassic World: Dominion” released in June 2022. 

Siegel’s Cottonwood Farm recreates the fallen Jurassic world with its 10 acre, five-mile long corn maze uniquely designed to include some of the favorite dinosaur characters. Walk around a palm tree and don’t succumb to the volcano. 

The theme is especially fitting because it just happens to coincide with all of the recent dinosaur discoveries that occurred over the summer all over the world.

During Pumpkin Fest 2022, the dinosaurs come alive on the farm through performances of the Triceratops, T-Rex and a Velociraptor. Children can have a DINO-mite experience in the Dino Barn open all day, everyday.

We’ve been going there my whole life. Every few years they add on, which is great to keep people coming back. I spent 4 falls there as an employee and it was an amazing job! If you like to work outside & with people, this is the place. Sue, Paul & the rest of the family are amazing to work for!

Its hard finding a safe fun clean place to bring my two toddlers. But there was so much kid friendly stuff to do my boys had a blast. The weather was a bit rainy but the staff went above and beyond to make sure everything was as dry as could possibly be. I recommend this place for anyone with kiddos. Had blast thank you guys really during crazy times like this its just what me and my family needed
