Great Glass Pumpkin Patch
Saturday October 2, 2021
10am to 2pm
Come to the inaugural Autumn at the Arboretum on Saturday October 2, 2021 and experience the Ottawa Glassblowing Co-op's Great Glass Pumpkin Patch!
Over 200 blown glass pumpkins, collaboratively made by members of the OGC, will be glowing in the natural light, surrounded by the fall colours of the Arboretum. Visitors can purchase the pumpkins to support the expansion of Ottawa’s growing community of glassblowers. Come early to purchase the pick of the patch. Prices range from $20 to $200 and proceeds from the sale will help finance the OGC’s move to a new studio space.
This outdoor event will be held rain or shine, in respect of Ontario’s health and safety guidelines for COVID19. The Great Glass Pumpkin Patch will be on the Arboretum grounds north of Building 72, at the east exit of the roundabout at the intersection of Prince of Wales Drive and the National Capital Commission Scenic Driveway.
This free, family-friendly event is hosted by the Friends of the Central Experimental Farm. More event details can be found at the Friends of the Farm's event page.
