Group Scheduling

We welcome groups and parties at Papa’s! All group visits must be scheduled in advance.

Field trips are the most popular way for groups to visit Papa’s Pumpkin Patch. In fact, we’ll welcome over 8,000 children (mostly students) this fall so please plan early!

Available times: Group visits are scheduled Mondays-Thursdays 12 – 3:30 pm. Reservations are every half hour and must be made in advance.  Group visits are typically 90 minutes.

Cost: $3/person, including all children, teachers, and chaperones. This pricing is unique to weekday group reservations only and not compatible with any other passes or discounts. For those who wish it, for an additional fee we include a small pumpkin ($1, already bagged for each person and ready to go at the end of your group visit), and one of Papa’s famous pumpkin cookies for every member of the group (50 cents).

The reservation fee must be paid in advance to hold your reservation.

You can choose to have each guest pay their own admission or you can pay all guests admission.
