Oxtober Pumpkin Festival

OxtoberFall is Oxbow’s most bountiful and beautiful season. Celebrate with us at our month-long Oxtober Pumpkin Festival, every Saturday and Sunday from 10am-5pm from October 2nd-30th. Our farm stand and pumpkin patch are also open on Thursdays and Fridays from 10-5, and our kids’ farm is open for browsing; full festival activities are on weekends only. We are open rain or shine, but will post updates here and on our Facebook Page if weather conditions impact our hours.

Oxbow offers U-pick pumpkins of all shapes and sizes, along with fun activities for kids and adults. There is no fee to visit the festival! Some activities require magic beans to participate. Magic beans are available for purchase in several places around the festival. Read on for a list of the month’s activities!

We are using our West Entrance to the pumpkin patch this season. Please follow these directions to the farm (Google Maps will mislead you!)

You can reach us with questions about the pumpkin patch at thedirt@oxbow.org or by calling 425-788-1134.

NOTE: Dogs are NOT permitted on Oxbow’s grounds, so please leave your furry friends at home. Thank you!

School Field Trips

Oxbow Farm is busy all Oxtober with visitors from local preschools and elementary schools. Our Fall Farm Adventures take kids on interactive educational tours of the Kids’ Farm. Kids search for and eat six plant parts, learn about the animals that help us farm, and take home a sugar pie pumpkin. To read more about tours or to register, click here.
