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 huge corn maze, thousands of pumpkins, ax throwing, carnival games, food trucks, twinkling orange light displays and more fall fun to the city. A general admission ticket nets you access to the pop-up, but you can also opt for add-ons that let you take home a pumpkin, grab a drink at one of three bars or go axe-throwing.
