Please note hours vary by season

Fall season is Harvest Season at Sonny Acres. It's our families time to celebrate with the rest of Chicagoland.

From mid-September through October 31, Sonny Acres is host to family fun and activities. Hay rides, haunted houses, amusement rides, cotton candy, roasted corn, and much more. We also stock a wide variety costumes from traditional to hot seasonal items and accessories for your costume.

The largest part of the Harvest Season Festival are the pumpkins, gords, and dried corn stalks. In the year 2010 over 400 tons of pumpkins were sold. We'd like to share our celebration with you, see you here!
