Celebrating its 18th anniversary, the Great Glass Pumpkin Patch® is the largest glass pumpkin patch in California. Featuring over 8,000 hand-blown glass pumpkins crafted by 24 prominent glass artisans, this beloved fall event returns to the newly renovated Palo Alto Art Center. Wander through a dazzling array of one-of-a kind glass pumpkins and other unique glass art objects designed to reflect nature’s brilliance in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. From bold, contemporary designs, to earthy tones, to delicate and ornate with iridescent accents, these glass art pumpkins are perfect for Halloween or Thanksgiving, yet beautiful enough to display year-round.
The public sale runs Saturday through Sunday, September 28th and 29th, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Proceeds support the three presenting organizations: the Bay Area Glass Institute (BAGI), Palo Alto Art Center (PAAC), Palo Alto Art Center Foundation (PAACF), as well as participating artists. Both BAGI and PAACF are 501(c)(3) nonprofit art education organizations. This year's event is sponsored by Go Daddy.
