Pumpkin Patch, Pig Races, Mazes & More!
October 7-31, 2017
French Prairie Gardens, St. Paul, OR

The crisp fall air means it is time for some family fun at our pumpkin patch. Fall on the farm is much more than just pumpkins, we have animal feeding, giant slides, a corn maze, a hay maze, and a farm ninja challenge! There is so much to do for all in the family it’s hard to believe there could be a favorite, but the event everyone talks about is our Pigtucky Derby. The derby is our famous pig races!

The pumpkin patch event runs for 4 weeks in October from the 7th to the 31st. Unlimited event wristbands are available for purchase and cover most of the things to experience.
