First City Art Center’s 15th annual Glass and Ceramic Pumpkin Patch takes place on Saturday, Oct. 9th from 2 PM to 6 PM at Blue Wahoos Stadium. The event is free for the public to attend, and attendees will have thousands of hand-blown glass and hand-thrown clay pumpkins created by local artists and members of First City Art Center's glass and pottery guilds to browse and pick from!
Prices for pumpkins begin at $20. This event supports FCAC as a non-profit center for the arts offering affordable art education and outreach programs, and your pumpkin purchases also support over 40 local artists!
Manna Food Pantries will also be at the Pumpkin Patch accepting non-perishable donations to support the community. Guests who bring a full bag of donations will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win an FCAC swag bag.
Blue Wahoos concessions and bar will be open during the event. The ECUA water truck will be present to provide free water to guests. Carts, strollers, or wagons will not be allowed on the field where the pumpkins will be displayed for sale. No outside food or drink or dogs are permitted in the stadium.
For the safety of all attendees, face masks are strongly encouraged. Staff and volunteers will have masks and hand sanitizer available. First City Art Center is following current CDC guidelines and local mandates regarding Covid-19 for the safety of our community.
