Live in Lake Stevens and go to Brew Fest.Fall is a wonderful time to live in Lake Stevens. The crispness of the air paves the way to numerous activities throughout the region. Carleton Farms will be a busy place the whole season and the festivities will kick off on Saturday, September 30th with Brewfest 2017. Take this opportunity to sample the best brews from a large number of local breweries while enjoying the lovely farm scenery, listening to good music, and munching on a yummy pumpkin donut.

The beer tasting area will be in the barn and only open to those 21 and over. Children can come too as long as they stay in Carleton’s Pumpkinland. Choose from a 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. time slot or a 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. time slot. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. The net proceeds of this event will go to Grow Washington, which is a non-profit whose goal is to help small businesses. Visit Carleton Farms to purchase tickets. While you are at the Carleton Farms website, be sure to check out all of the other fall festivities going on this year.

Make lasting memories with the whole family by coming out to the pumpkin patch. Explore Carleton Farms to choose the perfect pumpkin and find a long list of other fun things to do. Get lost in the corn maze, jump on the new giant pumpkin jump pad, let the kids run around in the outdoor play area or if the weather is poor, hang out in the kids barn. Go for a hayride and watch the joy on your children’s faces as they ride on the bucket train. Find farm animals, food and snacks, a zip line/swing, and yes, even a pumpkin cannon. Shop at the Farm Market to grab some fresh produce to take home. All who live in Lake Stevens and the surrounding areas are also invited to Carleton Farms at night. Try out Zombie Paintball, Haunted Swamp, Dark Maze, and Zombie Farm. The pumpkin patch and corn maze is open every day from September 30th through October 31st and the nighttime activities occur on the weekends starting October 6th.
