Pumpkin Patch Preview Party


Friday, October 5th, 2018    6 – 9 p.m.


First City Art Center’s Pumpkin Patch is the center’s largest fundraiser of the year. The event not only supports FCAC as a nonprofit center for the arts offering affordable education and outreach programs, pumpkin purchases also support over 50 local artists. FCAC’s 12th Annual Pumpkin Patch has become a signature event for Pensacola, and is the only Pumpkin Patch benefiting First City Art Center as an important cultural asset for the community.

The Pumpkin Patch Preview Party on Friday night includes complimentary hors d’oeuvres, drinks, live music, art demonstrations, raffles and the Pensacola Quilter’s Guild will be displaying their beautiful pumpkin-inspired quilts at this fun event!

This year, FCAC Pumpkin Patch attendees will have over 4,500 hand-blown glass and hand-thrown clay pumpkins to choose from. The pumpkins are created by members of First City Art Center’s glass and pottery guilds. These unique hand-made pumpkins come in all shapes, colors and sizes.

Prices for glass and ceramic pumpkins begin at $20. and attendees may purchase one pumpkin or fall item on the night of the Preview Party. One additional pumpkin ticket (per person) may be purchased for $10. to be redeemed at the Preview Party for the opportunity to purchase one more pumpkin! Although sales are limited at the Preview Party, please return the following morning to enjoy unlimited sales.

Ticket does not include a pumpkin. Pumpkins are purchased separately.
