Join us for the 12th Annual Great Glass Pumpkin Patch!

Saturday, October 16 at 10 AM - 3 PM, 2021

Monroe County Courthouse Lawn

100 W Kirkwood

The Great Glass Pumpkin Patch is back and in person! Come pick out your very own handmade blown glass pumpkin at the 12th annual Great Glass Pumpkin Patch! We will have over 700 glass pumpkins for display and sale spread out on the Monroe County Courthouse lawn like a real pumpkin patch. There is no preregistration required for this event, but we will ask people to socially distance while waiting in line.

Even though this is an outdoor event, MASKS ARE REQUIRED TO ENTER THE GREAT GLASS PUMPKIN PATCH. We will be enforcing this policy and you will not be allowed to enter the patch without a mask, even if you have been waiting in line a long time. If you do not have a mask, we will have some on hand. Thank you for helping us protect our visitors, volunteers and staff.

All of the pumpkins are made by the members of the Bloomington Creative Glass Center. Rain or shine! Cash, check and credit card accepted.


Great Glass Pumpkin Patch Preview

October 2, 5:30-8:00

Bloomington Creative Glass Center

229 W Grimes Ln

Come for a sneak peak of the pumpkins that will be featured at the Great Glass Pumpkin Patch October. If you are wanting to do more than just look, any supporter who makes a tax exempt donation of at least $50 may purchase up to two pumpkins at their marked price at the preview. Come check out the pumpkins before the crowds!

To limit the size of the crowds in the building, you must sign up for a time slot for the preview. Entrance is free, but advanced registration is required.
