Jerry Smith Farm

Enjoy the Halloween season in the Kenosha Area!

As you participate in all of the fun events, take photos! Submit your favorite ones to our annual Picture Your Kenosha Photo Contest. At the conclusion of each year, we select three winners who are awarded bragging rights and a dining experience for two at a local restaurant.

Jerry Smith Farm


Jerry Smith Farm is a must see stop during October! It’s free to view the artistic hand-painted pumpkin displays. There are also pumpkins to purchase, a giant bounce pad to jump on, hayrides, a petting zoo, a corn maze, a haunted attraction, and much more! There are delicious frosted fresh-baked cookies, caramel apples, and hot cider to enjoy - as well as adult and coffee beverages.

Fall Into Fun


The Fall Into Fun Festival happens on October 14 at Veterans Memorial Park. Among the many activities are a Pumpkin Decorating Contest (register by October 9) and a Costume Contest (register at event) – both are for all ages. You can also stroll through Downtown Kenosha to check out the decorated storefront window displays and vote for your favorite! More Fall & Halloween Events>
