Countdown begins for the Grove Pumpkin Patch

October is here and pumpkin-flavor aficionados will revel in all that is Fall when the Coconut Grove Pumpkin Patch Festival comes back to Peacock Park, 2820 McFarlane Road, on October 26 and 27, from 10 am to 6 pm each day.

The festival will include a Pumpkin Food Court to include such treats as:

Pumpkin Curry Chicken Shish Kebabs 
Pumpkin Arugula Flatbread 
Fresh Cut Sweet Potato Fries with Pumpkin Spice and Variety of Toppings 
Tacos with Roasted Pumpkin - Pulled Pork or Grilled Chicken 
Pumpkin Pie 

In addition to the full Pumpkin Beer Bars featuring Samuel Adams OctoberFest, Angry Orchard Hard Ciders and the Truly Spiked and Sparkling lineup, the festival will offer two specialty cocktails for the occasion:

Angry Bomb – Angry Orchard with Fire Whisky
Pumpkin Pie – Pumpkin Spiced Rum with Cinnamon Schnapps & Cream

This much anticipated seasonal event features a variety of fun activities for the whole family, including a giant pumpkin patch in the center of all the action with more than 2,500 pumpkins and carnival rides for all ages. 

Admission is $20 per person for those ages 2 and up, and includes unlimited carnival rides, a kiddie cornstalk maze, multiple fall photo vignettes, a scarecrow dress-up village, face painting and sponsor giveaways.  Admission is free for children under 24 months old (does not include access to carnival rides).  For an additional cost, attendees can also enjoy picking the perfect pumpkin in the patch (prices vary based on size) and decorating pumpkins in the Pumpkin Decorating tent.

The Coconut Grove Pumpkin Patch Festival was recently lauded as one of the top 20 Best Fall Harvest Festivals & Events by O, The Oprah Magazine, #2 among the top 29 Best Fall Festivals & Fairs in the U.S. by Country Living, and the Best Fall Festival in the state of Florida by Travel+Leisure in 2017.
