Consistently voted as the No. 1 best fall festival in the Valley, the Schnepf Farms annual Pumpkin and Chili Party is back again in Queen Creek. On the agenda, pumpkin party-goers will find endless rides, a stunt dog show, bonfires and marshmallow roasting, train rides, a petting zoo, a four-acre corn maze and so much more.
New this year, adventure-seekers can get their thrills on the Hyper-Loop, a blood-pumping ride that swings back and forth until you go full circle while 75 feet in the air. Your visit wouldn’t be complete without trying some world-class chili or succotash and plucking a pumpkin from the patch.
The Pumpkin and Chili Party takes place every Thursday through Sunday through Oct. 27. Tickets are $22, though a variety of discount days and tickets are available.
