Friday Night Pumpkin Patch Preview Party

October 11 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Guests will have the first glance at over 5,500 hand-blown glass and hand-thrown clay pumpkins, and the chance to meet the artists! Sales will be limited at this exclusive event.

The Preview Party includes complimentary hors d’oeuvres, drinks, live music, art demonstrations, raffles, and the opportunity to be the first to purchase a pumpkin!

FCAC Annual Pumpkin Patch is a signature event for Pensacola, and is the only Pumpkin Patch benefiting non-profit First City Art Center as an important cultural asset for the community.

~ Meet and Greet the Artists
The event not only supports FCAC as a nonprofit center for the arts offering affordable education and outreach programs, pumpkin purchases also support over 50 local artists.

Artists will join us for the event to meet and talk to guests. Look for the artist lanyards!

~The Pumpkin Crop
These unique hand-made pumpkins made by members of FCAC’s glass and pottery guilds come in all shapes, colors and sizes. Prices for glass and ceramic pumpkins begin at $20.
