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.
