An Old-Fashioned Family Fun EventLogo for the Pumpkin Junction Event

Mark your calendars and gather up the entire family to ride the train to Pumpkin Junction! It’s more than just a place to purchase a pumpkin… the Junction is a place for outdoor family fun, food vendors, a hayride and more!

Spend Some Time at the Junction

Welcome to our big ‘backyard’ at the Junction. Enjoy a variety of free, family-friendly activities, games and seasonal crafts. Figure out the puzzle as you wander the pallet maze. And be sure to enjoy a delicious lunch and scrumptious snacks from the food truck and sweets vendors on the grounds throughout your stay.Pumpkins in a field near a tree.

This festive fall experience lasts approximately 75 minutes, including the time on the train and at the Junction. So bring your sunglasses, a smile and the whole family! This event is a quality pumpkin patch alternative for children with sensorial needs.
