Texas Pumpkin Fest is a family-owned pumpkin patch that has been entertaining families since the early 1990s. Not only do they provide Texas-grown, food-grade pumpkins, the Patch includes family-friendly activities, games, face and pumpkin painting, rides, and vendors. Perfect for a family outing or a field trip, they are open every day until Halloween, and provide free and handicap parking. 

SO MUCH TO DO

A variety of pumpkins and gourds are available for sale, beginning at $2 each, as well as corn stalks, hay bales, and more. There will also be several food trucks onsite, and many fall-inspired retail and craft vendors. 

Families will have the opportunity to explore five acres of pumpkins and gourds, play a variety of Halloween-themed games and get lost in a maze. There are also selfie stations and photo ops all around the patch. 

The Patch also hosts school field trips every day, which provides students an opportunity to experience the festivities of the season. Field trips may be scheduled for one-hour visits 9am-2pm on weekdays; everyone can enjoy their lunch on the Terrace. Student tickets are $7, parents & teachers are free, and everyone gets a pumpkin to take home. Get your trip on the calendar at 512-247-8978.

WHEN YOU GO

Organizers request visitors bring no pets or coolers. They also ask everyone to respect the pumpkins; no sitting on, kicking, or throwing the little guys, and treat all people with kindness. 

The Patch is also observing the Governor’s COVID-19 guidelines, so social distancing will be observed as much as is reasonable, and sanitizing stations should be utilized. Visitors must self-screen with regard to symptoms, and masks should be worn when visitors are not able to maintain 6-feet of distance.
