Autumn at the Arboretum is finally back
The most beautiful time of the year has arrived, and no we are not talking about winter!
Each year the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens hosts a pumpkin festival called Autumn at the Arboretum with a different annual theme. This year’s theme is “Bugtopia” and marks the 16th annual festival.
This year’s signature exhibit will come to life with larger-than-life insect topiaries, fascinating pumpkin houses, and even a maze for young visitors. You can visit the festival from September 18 to October 31, 2021. Tickets are available for buy by following this link.
Besides seeing these amazing works of art, there are also several different activities to participate in during the season. Event activities include:
- Exclusive tours of the gardens
- Jewelery demonstrations
- Wild bird flight shows
- Composting course
- Hands on insect demonstrations
- Autumn Vendor Market

- Face painting and more!
The festival also features over 150,000 fall flowers adorned with fun fall accents like pumpkins, squash and squash, all from Floydada, Texas.
Autumn at the Arboretum is home to the Pumpkin Village, which features four ornate 20-foot-tall pumpkin houses and creative displays made from over 90,000 pumpkins, gourds and squash. The large 1 acre pumpkin patch village takes 35 workers about 21 days to build.
It is literally a pumpkin wonderland.
Of course, it’s Halloween weekend where things really get hot! October 30 and 31, Autumn at the Arboretum will feature garden-wide treats, pumpkin decorations, body art paintings, a petting zoo and live music on the Martin Rutchik concert stage and lawn.
Don’t forget to wear your fancy dress so you can participate in the Dress Like a Bug contest on Saturday and Sunday for a chance to win tickets to Holidays at the Arboretum, which is the winter edition of Autumn at the Arboretum.
