Autumn at the Arboretum, presented by Rogers-O’Brien Construction, returns for the 14th year with their nationally acclaimed Pumpkin Village. This year’s festival, “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” runs September 21-October 31. The festival features pumpkin houses and creative displays that use over 90,000 pumpkins, gourds, and squash. The Dallas Arboretum’s favorite fall festival features a Great Pumpkin covered in marigolds and topiary characters such as Linus, Sally and Franklin looking through the pumpkin patch. Snoopy and Woodstock topiaries top his dog house; Lucy gives garden advice at her advice booth; and Schroeder stands near his giant topiary piano.

They experience the garden in its fall glory, walk in the pumpkin houses, and enjoy the programming throughout the garden.”
