October 13, 2023 - October 15, 2023
The 13th Annual Glass Pumpkin Patch opens on Friday, October 13, 2023, and runs through Sunday, October 15, 2023. It will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily and will take place on the West Lawn and Staff Lot of the Arboretum grounds. Entrance to the event is included with admission to the Arboretum. Please note that this is a ‘rain or shine’ event.
Guests are invited to stop by and watch daily demonstrations by featured glassblower, Shannon Jane Morgan, along with many other artists, as they dramatically turn bits of glass into stunning molten pumpkin masterpieces (see times above). Narrators will take them step-by-step through the process as these talented artists demonstrate this ancient art form, explaining the processes and tools used to create these stunning autumnal beauties.
This year, guests can also visit the new Halloween tent to find enchanting and frightful works of art to decorate both home and garden this “spook-tacular” season!
