Updated: Oct 8, 2023

Get ready to dive into the heart of autumn at Ferme Benoit Vernier’s Citrouilleville! This cozy haven is a true celebration of everything that makes fall special – from abundant pumpkins to the whimsy of Halloween.

Nestled just a short 35-minute drive away from Montreal’s West Island, Saint-Zotique's Citrouilleville offers a plethora of delightful activities for families to enjoy. Whether you’re searching for that perfect pumpkin, exploring the enchanting pumpkin houses that seem like they're out of a storybook, or striking a pose in the charming photo booths scattered around, Citrouilleville promises an unforgettable taste of autumn.

Embark on an adventure in the corn maze, a delightful puzzle that will have you weaving through twists and turns. And guess who’s your guide? None other than King Corn himself! As you journey through the maze, you’ll encounter King Pumpkin, King Strawberry, and a cast of characters who will unveil the captivating story of Citrouilleville.

Capture the essence of the season with a family photo against the backdrop of antique carriages, trucks, and tractors – the perfect setting for creating lasting memories. And of course, no visit to Citrouilleville is complete without picking out that perfect pumpkin to be the star of your Halloween décor.

Before you embark on your autumn adventure:

  • If you're bringing little ones, consider bringing a baby carrier or wagon, as it might be easier to navigate than a stroller on the grassy terrain. Leashed dogs are welcome!

  • Citrouilleville tickets can only be purchased online.

  • The site is open October 14th, 15th, 21st and 22nd. Due to rainy conditions, it will be closed this Thanksgiving Monday, October 9th.

  • Rain in the forecast? No worries – Citrouilleville stays open for a bit of drizzle. Check their social media for any updates if the weather takes a turn.

  • Hungry? There’s a food truck on-site, or you're welcome to pack your own snacks and enjoy a cozy picnic.

  • Don’t forget to embrace the spirit of the season by wearing your favorite costumes – all styles are welcome!

But here’s a little extra treat: if you're in Canada and eager to make the most of Halloween with your family, Citrouilleville is your go-to destination. They open up a whopping month and a half before Halloween, giving you ample time to soak in the fall vibes and pick out the perfect pumpkin from their fantastic selection in Saint-Zotique, Quebec.

Embrace the enchantment of autumn as the landscape turns into a warm tapestry of colors and the excitement of Halloween fills the air. Citrouilleville invites you to join in the festivities, creating treasured memories and selecting the finest pumpkins to bring the spirit of the season to life. It’s an open invitation to become a part of the autumn story, to revel in the joy of the season, and to kick off the pumpkin-inspired celebrations! 🎃🍂
