Hunting for that perfect, long stem, “chubby face” pumpkin? Come to Shawn’s Pumpkin Patch, right in the middle of the city! With lots of straw bales, corn stalks, mountains of pumpkins, gourds, and more. Shawn’s Pumpkin Patch is sure to give you a little of the “country” feeling.

Shawn’s Pumpkin Patch will be much different and smaller than in previous years. They are making changes and downsizing this event to ensure the safety of everyone.  When the Pumpkin Patch reaches capacity, as one family/group exits, another family/group will be allowed to enter.

Expect to have lines, so come prepared to wait before entering. It is recommended to visit us during the week or early morning on the weekends to avoid lines.

Face covering will be required to enter, and a lot of rides and attractions will not be available. The train, petting zoo, and some game booths that will be sanitized after every use. Additionally, there will not be field trips or parties.
