The Dripping Springs Pumpkin Festival is held at the Dr. Pound Historical Farmstead, a Texas State Historical Landmark, which is also included on the National Register of Historic Places. Originally settled in 1854, the farmstead is nestled on five beautifully shaded, oak-filled acres, making it the perfect setting for a fall celebration.

Dripping Springs Pumpkin Patch

Bring out the family and experience 6 uniquely-themed weekends of unlimited fun with over 50 fall-inspired games, activities, and attractions. Enjoy live music presented by iHeart's KASE 101 and Anne Hudson, a courtyard marketplace featuring family-friendly products, and an incredible selection of seasonal foods and beverages for children and adults alike.
