Buckelew Farm Pumpkin Festival closes permanently

A Fall tradition is coming to a close after 30 years.

Tucson’s Buckelew Farm announced that their pumpkin festival and corn maze will be closing permanently due to the retirement of its show-runners, Nick and Laurie.

In a statement on their website, the family said that, “Nick and Laurie have retired after 30 years of helping to make family memories and traditions in the Tucson Community. Thank you to all our loyal customers who have supported us throughout these past three decades.”

For those still seeking chills and thrills, the Buckelew Farm’s Terror in the Corn attraction will return every Friday and Saturday in October, along with the annual Zombie Mud Run!
