Downtown Chicago's Pumpkin Patch Experience
Visiting Jack’s Pumpkin Pop-Up
Author: Ruby Travels
Returning to a two-acre plot of land just west of Goose Island, Jack's Pumpkin Pop-Up saves you a trip to the suburbs by bringing a corn maze, thousands of pumpkins, and plenty of Insta-worthy fall moments to Downtown Chicago. This year’s edition has a different look this year, with safety being their first priority (think mandatory timed reservations, face masks required, cash-less transactions, and no food and beverages onsite), but as Jack said, “the show must go on.”
