The Bloomington Creative Glass Center's
9th Annual
Great Glass Pumpkin Patch

October 13, 10:00-3:00

Monroe County Courthouse lawn

Come pick out your very own handmade blown glass pumpkin at the 8th annual Great Glass Pumpkin Patch! We will have over 900 glass pumpkins for display and sale spread out on the Monroe County Courthouse lawn like a real pumpkin patch. All of the pumpkins are made by the members of the Bloomington Creative Glass Center.

Over 40 local artists and non-artists have participated in blowing the pumpkins. Like at a real pumpkin patch, glass pumpkins will be out in the lawn for you to “pick” your very own!

With each purchase of a pumpkin, you are supporting arts education.


Additional Afternoon Activities
1:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m.

face painting • glass fused suncatcher workshop • pumpkin painting • and more!

Get your glass pumpkin in the morning and then come back in the afternoon to make your own art. Hands on workshops are open to anyone ages 5+ (Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult). Space is on a first come first served basis.


Event is rain or shine. Cash, Check, and Credit card accepted.


 Pumpkin Preview, Friday October 12, 4:30-6:30

Place TBA.


What if you find the perfect pumpkin at the Preview on Friday and can't bear that it might get away from you at the Patch on Saturday? (drumroll please)

Now you can buy pumpkins at the preview!

Yes! You could buy the pumpkin that most calls to you on Friday without the nerve-wracking fun of waiting in line at the Patch!
Here's how: any supporter who makes a tax exempt donation of at least $50 may then purchase up to two pumpkins at their marked price at the preview on Friday, October 12, 4:30-6:30.

 Make a weekend of it!
