Dallas Arboretum’s Pumpkin Patch “The Art of the Pumpkin” is open for 2020 with over 90,000 pumpkins!
This is an updated post for 2020 exhibition. We visited the pumpkin patch festival at the Dallas Arboretum and also the First Hispanic Heritage Festival where there was a Quinceañeras parade.
As each Fall, pumpkins and gourds arrive for the thirteen consecutive year for the long-awaited pumpkin garden or Pumpkin Patch with more than 90,000 pumpkins of all kinds, sizes and colors.
Be sure to bring your battery-powered camera or Smartphone because it’s so colorful and spectacular that you’ll want to take photos in every corner!
Pumpkins are everywhere in the Arboretum, but when you reach the Pumpkin Patch you’ll join Neverland or “The Adventures in Neverland” where you’ll see figures of well-known story characters, with Peter, Wendy and Tinkerbell.
There is a small fairy garden, pirates, the hiding place of the lost boys, a crocodile and even a mermaid!

Hispanic Heritage day at Dallas Arboretum
For the first time the Dallas Arboretum celebrated Hispanics on Hispanic Heritage Day. The garden is one of the favorite places to take photos of girls who turn fifteen, as there are many beautiful natural scenarios for all kinds of sessions.
The festival was very fun and complete, there was Quinceañeras parade, where the girls showed off their spectacular dresses.
If you have Quinceañera next year, you can register and participate in this event!
There were also folk dances, cadet dancing (fifteen-year-old parties), cooking demonstration for tamales, handicraft sales and other activities.
There’s a lot to do at the Dallas Arboretum. For more information visit DallasArboretum.org
