Boerne's Annual Pumpkin Patch Has A New Location

No matter what age you are, there’s something that never really gets old about going to the pumpkin patch to pick out the perfect pumpkin! The local First United Methodist Church has been faithful in bringing their pumpkin patch to Boerne every year for more than 20 years. Over the years, The Patch has called several locations around town “home”, and this year they have a new and exciting location – The AgriCultural Museum! The AgriCultural Museum, formerly known as the Ag Heritage Museum, has been undergoing some changes in the recent months. New ideas, events, and branding have surfaced for this beloved Boerne museum. The pumpkins were delivered last weekend and are settled into their new digs with lots of October fun in the works!

Pumpkin Patch –

From big to small, come and pick your favorite pumpkin out of hundreds to choose from! The AgriCultural Museum is located at 102 City Park Road, and The Patch will be open every day from 11AM-7PM.  This location also makes for a picture-perfect pumpkin patch experience! The antique tractors at the museum make for fabulous photo-ops, and what kid doesn’t want to climb up into the seat and pretend to drive around in a huge old tractor?

Donations are welcomed, and all proceeds will benefit the Family Ministry program to help fund mission trips, retreats, camps and more for local students. It is free to visit the Pumpkin Patch on any given day of the month!

KurbisFest (PumpkinFest) and Antique Tractor Pull–

On October 13th from 10:00AM to 4:00PM, the KurbisFest (German for PumpkinFest) will take place for the first time. There will be so much to do! Take a tour through the museum, take the kids to have their faces painted, meander through a pumpkin maze, carve and paint pumpkins and play carnival games on the grounds. Awards and prizes will be given in a special pumpkin carving/decorating contest. There will also be a pumpkin-inspired food and bake sale (YUM)! Some events will require additional fees, and the entry fee is $5 per adult - kids 12 and under get in free!

Antique Tractor Pull –

In addition to all of the fun that the KurbisFest will offer on October 13th, the annual “Key to the Hills” Antique Tractor Pull will continue in its tradition. Place your bets and watch the antique tractors compete to see which tractor can carry the heaviest load the farthest distance! Spectators can expect to see about 50 Farmall and John Deere tractors participating in the event.
