Date: Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays in October starting Oct. 12.
Location: Holy Cross Episcopal Church
Holy Cross 12th Annual Pumpkin Patch opens on Friday, October 12, 2018 and is open every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday through the end of October.
Our Pumpkin Patch began in 2007 as a small fundraiser selling a few pumpkins to support the ministries and outreach of Holy Cross. We're kicking off our 12th year and our Patch has grown to be the largest pumpkin patch in Ft. Bend County. We welcome thousands of visitors to our Pumpkin Patch each year, and we believe our big, beautiful pumpkins are unmatched in quality and freshness. That's right - our pumpkins are IN THE FIELD just days before they arrive in our Patch! We get them directly from northern New Mexico, where they are picked, loaded onto a truck, and driven straight to our Pumpkin Patch.
The event begins with "Pumpkin Unloading Day" when the truck and 52' trailer arrives. Our entire church family (from the youngest to the oldest), with help from friends and local high school volunteers, unloads each and every pumpkin by hand (see photos below). Unloading 40,000-50,000 pounds of pumpkins is quite a feat, but it is a day that is greeted with great excitement and anticipation.
We are open on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday throughout October.
Fridays--Open 12 noon until dark (pumpkin sales only--no concessions or activities)
Saturdays--Open 9am until dark (food, concessions & activities)
