SAVE THE DATE!

Mark your calendars and plan to join us for our annual Pumpkin Patch Fall Festival. We’ll have plenty of pumpkins, fun festival games, crafts and activities, scrumptious foods, family photo ops, meet the animals, and more! Outside exhibitors and vendors will also be on hand with everything from live animals and biofacts to examine to decorated pumpkin centerpieces, lemonade, and goat milk ice pops for sale.

With the support of 2021 Pumpkin Sponsor H-E-B, we’ll have over 12,000 pounds of pumpkins this year, including heirloom varieties! But please note that we only sell pumpkins during our fall festival weekend, October 16 and 17.

New this year! We’ll have no-carve pumpkin decorating kits you can purchase to decorate your pumpkins at home.

Keep a look out for details of our VIP Early Admission. As a VIP you’ll be invited to arrive early to grab the best parking spot, get your professional family portrait, and get first choice of pumpkins. This ticketed, limited-capacity event will also feature light bites and an exclusive animal encounter. Stay tuned to our email list for more info or contact Kat White to be notified when tickets become available! 2021 Food

Truck Line-Up:

In light of the COVID-19 surge in our region, NDC reserves the right to alter event details up until the event date, which could include implementing timed and/or paid admission to ensure social distancing.

Russ Pittman Park and Henshaw House are City of Bellaire public properties. As such, Nature Discovery Center complies with guidance from the City of Bellaire and the State of Texas. We strongly encourage our visitors to mask up and maintain their distance to protect themselves from COVID during this and any other public outdoor gathering.

Can’t come that weekend? Still avoiding public gatherings? We are pleased to offer a Pumpkin Patch To-Go option that offers a taste of the festival and will be available for pickup starting Monday after the festival. Check back here for more information about pre-ordering your PP2Go box.

Volunteering at Pumpkin Patch is a great way for teens and adults to get in on the fun. Groups welcome. To sign up to volunteer, contact DeAndra Ramsey.

Sponsors can get their logo in front of up to 4,000 attendees (not to mention NDC’s email and social media audience)! Click here to learn about Pumpkin Patch sponsorship opportunities and contact Kat White to become a sponsor.
