Every autumn the Desert Botanical Garden’s Great Pumpkin Festival is one of the Valley’s favorite places to find that special pumpkin. Take a hayride to the Garden’s pumpkin patch, where children 12 and under can choose their own free pumpkin. Get lost in the Amazing Hay Bale Maze, visit with adorable farm animals in the petting zoo, enjoy lively Country and Western entertainment and carnival-style games in our spacious Events Plaza, and much more!

  • Carnival games, crafts, and hayride are included with paid Garden admission.
  • Food concessions and Harvest Market items are an additional charge. Programming subject to change.

Special thanks to the Pearson Family and Pearson & Company. Sponsored by Chipotle.  Additional support from The Ferry Family Foundation in memory of Ernest S. and Virginia D. Ferry.
