Does Harvest Festival and Miners’ Pumpkin Patch admission include access to the museum building?

Unfortunately, no. The Western Museum of Mining & Industry is a separate attraction on our campus. Please come visit us another day!

Are there restrooms onsite?
Yes. Portable restrooms will be available at convenient locations around the property during Miner’s Pumpkin Patch and the Harvest Festival. Indoor restrooms are available for those who wish to tour the museum.

Where do your pumpkins come from?
We are a pre-picked patch. We work with some of the best farms in Colorado to bring in quality pumpkins for the picking. Each admission includes one pumpkin and each additional pumpkin is only $5 so be sure to pick up a few during your visit!

Are any of your events / activities considered “scary”?
Our annual Pumpkin Patch and Harvest Festival events are organized to cater to persons of all ages. We're proud to be considered one of the most family-friendly fall venues in the Pikes Peak Region and therefore do not feature anything scary or frightening as part of our events.

Can we bring food into the Patch?
Yes, you may bring your own food onto the grounds (alcohol is prohibited). We will also have concessions and food trucks available from some of the finest vendors across the Front Range. Plenty of picnic tables and space are available and do not require reservation (unless you wish to hold a private party/group). Space at the picnic table area is available on a first come first serve basis. If picnic tables are full, there is plenty of open ground that can be used for picnic style snacks or lunches. We are anticipating large crowds this year so we recommend bringing a picnic blanket just in case.

Are pets allowed?

Due to liability reasons, we are not able to allow pets on the property however, service animals are welcome with proper documentation.

Are there wheelchair / special needs accommodations?

Yes. Parking for wheelchair access is designated in the gravel space just outside the museum. We also have wheelchair accessible restrooms. Please contact us for any additional accommodations needed. 

Is there a time limit?
You can stay for as long as we are open. Feel free to roam, play, relax, and enjoy your time. Most visitors stay for approximately 2 hours at the minimum. Don’t forget that in addition to the Pumpkin Patch and Harvest Festival, the museum will be open as well. Be sure to make your way over if you’re interested in learning more about the mining history and culture that helped shape our great state into what it is today! If you choose to tour the museum, please allow for approximately 1–1.5 hours.

Is the Pumpkin Patch and Harvest Festival weather depending?

We are open rain or shine! As it is in Colorado, weather is often unpredictable so be sure to bring along an umbrella. October is usually a chilly time of the year around here so remember to dress accordingly. In the event of lighting, gates will close indefinitely and re-open when the weather is deemed safe again. If weather calls for heavy snow, please visit the home page or our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/MinersPatch for cancellations / updates.
