Autumn in the Upper Arkansas Valley is a wonderful time to celebrate the region and its abundant harvest. One great event for children and families is Guidestone’s Annual Pumpkin Patch & Harvest Festival at the Hutchinson Ranch in Salida, Colorado. This beloved community event provides 3 days of family fun for hundreds of festival-goers from Chaffee County and surrounding communities with horse-drawn wagon rides to the pumpkin patch, pony rides, field games, crafts, face painting, food, music and more!
The event is Guidestone’s largest fundraiser of the year, and proceeds from the Pumpkin Patch support the delivery of education programs, continued preservation efforts, and general operations of the Hutchinson Homestead and Learning Center, Guidestone’s home base of operations.
Pumpkin Patch is a rain, snow or shine event. In the event of inclement weather, the Hutchinson Ranch provides plenty of indoor space for foods, games, crafts and music. No refunds provided. And since this is a working ranch, please keep dogs at home. Thanks!
Event activities provide fun for all ages and include:
Horse-drawn wagon rides to a pumpkin patch
Tractor-drawn wagon rides
Straw Bale Maze
Farm Yard Area
The beautiful Hutchinson Ranch is located along the banks of the South Arkansas River, half way between Salida & Poncha Springs.
