The Best Pumpkin Patches In and Around San Antonio

Pumpkin Patches in San Antonio

It's officially the 'ber months in San Antonio and that means all things autumn have started making their debut (and by autumn, we don't actually mean cooler temps or leaves turning pretty colors because, hey, this is South Texas). Friday night lights football, spooky Halloween decorations, and of course, pumpkin spice EVERYTHING are popping up left and right. If the sights and smells of Fall got you feeling all the seasonal feels and you are ready to dive right into the action, choosing to head to one of the best San Antonio pumpkin patches with the family is the next step for you. 

While it may be in the high 90s and the leaves are green, you can still celebrate the season and grab those lovely instagrammable photos of your kids picking a beautiful, bright orange pumpkin that you can later carve into the perfect Halloween jack-o-lantern. So, load up your kids, your camera, and your sunscreen because it isn’t sweater weather just yet, and check out one of the many local pumpkin patches that start opening up at the end of September or beginning of October.
