Is there even fall in Dallas? Texans joke that there’s two seasons: blazing hot summer, sprinkled with a few days of winter. Autumn is typically comprised of “mild” days in the 80s.
My Northeast skin still isn’t used to it.
Despite the heat, though, we make it our mission to visit all the orchards, fall festivals, and pumpkin patches in Dallas. Nothing gets me in the mood for “fall” like picking out a pumpkin while noshing on a cider donut. We can still celebrate, right?!
Don’t let the heat stop you from enjoying fall in Dallas. Discover beautiful, artful displays of pumpkins, pumpkin houses, and pumpkins straight off the vine! We’re also rounding up the best local pumpkin patches with fall festivals, hayrides, spooky nights, and kids activities.
Most pumpkin patches open between the second half of September and the first half of October. Make sure to check the pumpkin patch’s website for the most up to date hours and ticketing information.
7 Pumpkin Patches in Dallas You Shouldn’t Miss This Fall
No list of pumpkin patches in Dallas is complete without mentioning one of the city’s premier fall events. The Art of the Pumpkin at the Dallas Arboretum is an absolute must for anyone local or visiting.
With over 150,000 autumn flowers, accented by pumpkins, squash, and gourds, you’ll love meandering through golden colored arboretum. The flowers and pumpkins are arranged in artful displays, leading you down the pathways, and culminating in the Arboretum’s Pumpkin Village.
At Pumpkin Village, find even more massive fall displays, a hay-bale maze, a pumpkin patch (with pumpkins to purchase), food stands, and more.
Admission and Address for The Dallas Arboretum
The Dallas Arboretum is $17 per adult, and $12 per child (2-12). The Art of the Pumpkin is included with general admission or membership. We personally recommend the annual membership for Dallas locals; ours has more than paid for itself.
