The 6 Pumpkin Patches & Corn Mazes in Greater Victoria

Published Aug 21, 2019 | Updated Sep 12, 2019

The best places to pick your own pumpkin in Greater Victoria. Between pumpkin patches and corn mazes, get the perfect fall photo-op with your kids.

As fall approaches, the question looming is: "Where to get the perfect pumpkin in our fine city?" Many of the local farms start to sell their U-Pick pumpkins towards the beginning of October, but it varies each season.

Sure you could go to Thrifty Foods and pick a few out of the bin, OR you could have a slightly more authentic and exciting experience by visiting one of the local pumpkin patches Victoria has to offer! Here’s a few of our faves to get you started on your hunt.

Pumpkin Patches In and Around Victoria, the Peninsula, and Westshore:


1. Galey Farms

Galey Farms Pumpkinfest is a great time for the whole family and a perfect time to pick your pumpkin! Featuring live entertainment, face painting, kids games, hay rides, U-Pick pumpkins, train rides, a corn maze, playground, petting farm, children’s haunted house, and fantastic seasonal displays, Galey Farms and fall basically go hand-in-hand for locals.

2. Michell Brother’s Farm

At the Michell Bros Farm on Island View Road, you can pick your own pumpkin and load up on lots of other fresh local eats like blackberries, blueberries, and local eggs. If you are picking up someone from the airport or ferry, we suggest going a few hours early and making an event out of the commute! The market’s open 8:30-5:30, 7 days a week. Read More.


3. Pendray Farms Corn Maze

Known for their gigantic corn maze, Pendray Farms also has a pumpkin patch filled with pumpkins perfect for carving, or gnarly warty ones that are fun decor. Your kids will love the scavenger hunt through the maze, the tasty popcorn they make fresh, and the "corn box" kids can play in (sand boxes are so last year). Located in North Saanich at 9537 West Saanich Rd and open Thursdays and Fridays 2pm- 9pm and Saturdays & Sundays 10am- 9pm. Read More.



4. Dan's Farm and Country Market

Also located on the Peninsula, Dan's Farm has a wonderful selection of a variety of pumpkin types. They have also set up some fun signs and scarecrows to make for a fall-y and halloween-y feel. Read More.



5. Silver Rill Corn

No mazes and hay rides here, but if you are in Central Saanich we highly suggest stopping by Silver Rill Corn to get pickin’. On top of tons of bright orange pumpkins the market is also loaded with corn and other awesome produce. Arguably, this is the best corn in town. Silver Rill is located at 7117 Central Saanich Road and are open from 9am - 5pm every day of the week!


6. McNab's Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch (South Nanaimo)

If you are up for a drive, this family-friendly farm has a 7-acre corn maze, huge pumpkin patch, and hayrides about 90 minutes from Victoria. Make a day of it by stopping along the way, and then once you're there you can hop on the hay wagon for a ride to the pumpkin patch and take your time selecting the perfect pumpkin. McNab's Farm is open 7 days a week from 10am till dusk and located at 4613 Yellow Point Road. Read More.
