Park Board To Host Scaled Back Fall Event At Rutledge-Wilson Farm Park


Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, fall festivities will go on at the Springfield-Greene County Park Board’s Rutledge-Wilson Farm Park in Springfield.  But this year’s event will be scaled back.

The Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze will be open Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, September 26, through Sunday, October 25.

The Harvest Fest and Haunted Trail, which are usually offered on weekends during the event are canceled this year due to the pandemic.  The superintendent of special facilities for the Park Board, Matt Coats, said in a news release that those events attract around 80,000 people a year, and it would be impossible to keep people spaced far enough apart.

This fall, admission is free to both the Pumpkin Patch and to the Corn Maze. Pumpkins are sold by weight.
