What people are saying about the Pumpkin Patch!

"Such a fun family event! 👍👍 - Ronald P.

 

"A nice event, had a plenty of great pumpkins, a petting zoo, food truck, and a few games. A nice casual fall outing for the family." - Ryan F.

 

"Great, well contained, urban pumpkin patch! Small enough to keep track of the kids, with fun simple games and activities for all. Don't need all day to experience a bit of fall weather and Halloween fun." - Linda B.

 

"What an absolute blast this was! Such a lovely pumpkin patch right here in south Minneapolis and there are so many unique pumpkins and gourds. The kids loved the scavenger hunt and goodie bag, along with the hay bail trail to run along. Sensory tables filled with corn and a slide for the little ones." - Bridget V.

 

"Quality pumpkins, great variety of decorative gourds. Fun scavenger hunt and sensory table for the kids! Worth the stop!" - Anne P.

 

"It is so nice not to have to drive all the way out to the suburbs to get pumpkins and do autumn activities 🙂 Plus the pumpkins are reasonably priced." - Elizabeth P.

PARTY AT THE PATCH

Saturday, October 22

11 AM - 7 pm

You're invited to our second annual Party at the Patch on Saturday, October 22!

 

This day will be full of fun and FREE events for children and adults including a petting zoo, music play for children, and more.

 

The Sizzlin' Wagon food truck will return after a hugely successful, and enjoyable, time last year. 

 

A fire truck from the Minneapolis Fire Department will stop by again this year for children to explore; since this is an active duty truck and crew we are unable to know exactly when they will be on site.

 

Also returning, Alissa J Photography offers family photo mini-sessions for $60.

 

This has been one of our most popular offerings at the Pumpkin Patch so sign up soon!

 

New this year, teachers from local music school, Songs with Sarah, will offer a music play session full of songs and movements perfect for children to explore and enjoy.

 

The Kenwood Symphony Orchestra will close our Party at the Patch with a free concert featuring works by Sergei Prokofiev, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, and Gao Hong.
