Save the Dates! The 2020 Pumpkin Patch & Harvest Festival is on!

October 9-11 and October 16-18
9 am-12 pm and 1-4 pm (each day)

We are thrilled to announce that the Pumpkin Patch & Harvest Festival is on! It will look a bit different this year, so here are some of the changes you can expect:

Pumpkin Patch will be held at the Hutchinson Homestead (across the street from the usual Ranch location), over two weekends, with many of the same activities, including crafts, animals, wagon rides, and a free pumpkin with each child’s ticket, while supplies last.

Pumpkin Patch tickets will go on sale October 1st. To accommodate smaller group sizes, tickets will be by advance purchase only, with a maximum of 100 people attending during each 3-hour time period. This is a rain, snow, or shine event, and we regret that weather-related refunds will not be available.

Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are available. For more information, please email info@guidestonecolorado.org.

We hope you’ll be able to join us!


2020 Event Details

Second and third weekends in October
9am-12pm and 1-4pm (each day)
Hutchinson Ranch, Salida

Autumn in the Upper Arkansas Valley is a wonderful time to celebrate the region and its abundant harvest. One great event for children and families is Guidestone’s Annual Pumpkin Patch & Harvest Festival. This beloved community event provides family fun for hundreds of festival-goers from Chaffee County and surrounding communities with wagon rides to the pumpkin patch, crafts, a straw bale maze, hot beverages and yummy baked goods, music, and more!

The event is Guidestone’s largest fundraiser of the year, and proceeds from the Pumpkin Patch support the delivery of education programs, continued preservation efforts, and general operations of the Hutchinson Homestead and Learning Center, Guidestone’s home base of operations.

Tickets
Pumpkin Patch tickets will go on sale October 1st. To accommodate smaller group sizes, tickets will be by advance purchase only, with a maximum of 100 people attending during each 3-hour time period. Children 2 & under are always free, and a free pumpkin comes with every child’s entrance ticket while supplies last. This is a rain, snow, or shine event, and we regret that weather-related refunds will not be available.

Location
The beautiful historic Hutchinson Homestead is located on US Highway 50, half way between Salida & Poncha Springs.
Since this is a working ranch, please keep dogs at home. Thank you!
