Knoxville Area Pumpkin Patches and Corn Mazes

Fall means cooler weather. When the hot days turn cool there's nothing better to do than visit a pumpkin patch or corn maze. The Knoxville area has several to choose from. You won't have to drive far. Whether you are simply choosing the perfect pumpkin or seeking out an all day corn maze experience there are several to choose from within a 45 minute drive.

If you are looking for a pumpkin, stop by Messiah Lutheran Church on Kingston Pike. Their front parking lot becomes awash in shades of orange in middle October. You are sure to find the right pumpkin to take home. All proceeds go to benefit the church and its various ministries.

For outdoor fun head on over to the Corn Maze in Corryton. This is about a 45 minute drive. There you will find a pumpkin patch and corn maze. It's lots of fun and adventure.

Or head on over to Jefferson City and visit the Echo Valley Corn Maze. It too is about 45 minutes from Knoxville but lots of fun!

There's lots of fun to be had this fall. For more information please see the following links:
