27 Best Pumpkin Patches to Visit in Dallas & DFW (2023 Update!)

It’s fall, y’all! And with that comes all of the fall-themed things: pumpkin spice lattes, scented candles, cooler weather (a bit), and best of all, pumpkin patches and fall photoshoots! Well, here I’m going to share exactly where to find the best pumpkin patches in Dallas and the DFW area!

I should mention that most pumpkin patches are in DFW and the greater Dallas area. They’ll require some driving, but it’s worth it!

I’ve found these spots after going on my own hunt for pumpkin patches in Dallas. There is a good number in the greater DFW area, but I’ve got to say that some are better than others.

First, you’ll find a map of all pumpkin patches in DFW. Then, I’ve divided this post into three sections:

  1. The Best Pumpkin Patches Near Dallas– these are spots that I’ve deemed “the best of the best” due to their photo-worthy natures! That means lots of pumpkins, good photo ops, and a fun environment.
  2. Other Pumpkin Patches in DFW– here you’ll find a full list of all the other pumpkin patches in the DFW area.
  3. Fall Photo Spots in Dallas– here are three more Dallas-specific fall photo spots where you can grab a quick fall photo! What do I mean by fall photos? You’ll find great places for fall colors (this doesn’t happen until November), pumpkin vignettes, and more.

This post has been updated with hours, pricing, and dates for the 2023 season!

(And if you need some ideas for a cute fall photoshoot, check out this post!)

Let’s get to it!

Map of Pumpkin Patches & Photo Spots Around Dallas

Here’s a map of all of the pumpkin patches and photo spots mentioned on my list!

It is color-coded by category:

  • Burnt Orange: The best pumpkin patches in my book!
  • Blue: All of the other pumpkin patches in DFW
  • Yellow: My Dallas fall photo spots

The Best Pumpkin Patches in Dallas Fort Worth

Alright, here are my favorite pumpkin patches near Dallas! Some are in Dallas, some are a bit further away. You can check the map at the bottom of this post to see where each is located!

Also, I should note: I say pumpkin patch because that’s the closest term to what you’ll find, but these pumpkins aren’t growing out of the ground, farm-style. They’re already picked and placed in perfect photo locations.

I know there are a lot of other pumpkin patches out there but these are my favorites for photos!

1. Hall’s Pumpkin Farm

2023 dates: September 29th – October 31st

Halls Pumpkin Farm is my favorite because it has it all! In short, it has:

  • A pumpkin patch area where pumpkins are positioned for photo ops
  • The best corn maze in Dallas (to me, at least!)
  • Hayrides
  • A petting zoo area that is great for kids and families

It’s located in Grapevine so it’s a bit of a drive from Dallas, but I think it’s definitely worth the drive!

You can read my full review on what to expect at Halls Pumpkin Farm here!

I talk about admission, the best times to visit, and more in that blog post!

2. The Dallas Farmer’s Market

2023 dates: open until October 31st

This isn’t your classic pumpkin patch, but it’s hard to create a pumpkin patch in Dallas when you’re in the middle of the city.

The Dallas Farmer’s Market does the best it can, and the results are awesome!

They’ve got rows of pumpkins lining the center of the market and the perfect photo op at the entrance!

You’ll find pumpkins galore, with a bunch of different pumpkin varieties!

It’s free to enter and you can buy all sorts of pumpkins here!

Tip: Their pumpkin display stays up during the week when there are no vendors (or people!) around in The Shed.

That means if you can swing a weekday visit, you’ll basically have the whole place to yourself!

Yup- basically a pumpkin patch in Dallas all to yourself!


  • Monday – Sunday from 10am – 5pm

3. Ruibals Plants of Texas

Right next to the Dallas Farmers Market is another great pumpkin patch in Dallas!

Ruibals is a large garden shop just a block away and they have pumpkins all over their large sidewalk area.

With cute photo spots like a red truck and a little shed in the middle of the pumpkins, Ruibals is another great pumpkin patch in Dallas.

You’ll also get a neat city vibe to your pumpkin photos here since you can see the Dallas skyline!

It is also free to enter, and you’ll want to check out their many plants while you’re here!

4. The Dallas Arboretum

2023 dates: open until November 5th

The Dallas Arboretum has what most would consider the best pumpkin patch in Dallas. (Directly in the city, at least!).

With over 100,000 pumpkins, squash, and gourds, you know this place is special!

The Dallas Arboretum has a themed pumpkin village every year. This year’s is “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”! My favorite is the 2022 theme, “A Fall Fairy Tale,” though I also loved when they did A Wizard of Oz a few years ago.

It costs $12-20 to enter, but trust me, this spot is worth it! You have to get online tickets in advance to reserve your time, which you can do here.

Tip: if you and your photographer/significant other/friend plan to visit the Dallas Arboretum at least twice this year (like for the Dallas Arboretum Christmas Market!), it’s actually cheaper to get an individual membership which allows you to also bring a guest!

With the membership, you can also sign up for “member morning walks” which allow you to arrive before the garden opens at 9 (though professional photography isn’t allowed until 9). Arriving early at least gives you time to find photo spots and take videos, though! And you’ll be ready before crowds show up!

PS. I’m wearing this dress from Amazon in the above photos!

5. St. James Episcopal Pumpkin Patch

2023 dates: from September 30th – October 31st

This church makes for the coolest backdrop to your pumpkin photos! Definitely is one of the coolest pumpkin patches in Dallas.

The pumpkin scene here is simple and classy- great for photo ops. With rows of pumpkins scattered across their lawn and the church steeple in the background, it makes for very neat photos!

It’s free to enter and you can buy pumpkins using a credit card!

5.5. Flowermound Pumpkin Patch (Closed in 2023)

These pictures were taken at Flower Mound Pumpkin Patch, TX 75028. Sadly it’s not open in 2023, but they hope to reopen next year.

Let’s hope they do! My favorite photo spot is the adorable pumpkin house pictured above!

The downside: it’s only open on Saturdays and Sundays, and 4 weekdays (10/6, 10/9, 10/13, 10/16).

Other pumpkin patches in DFW

The patches I listed above are what I’d consider to be the best of the best pumpkin patches near Dallas.

But there are so many more! And depending on where you’re located, I figured you’d want to have a list of all the pumpkin patches in the area.

I haven’t visited these, so I can’t say for sure if they’re worthy of being in my “best” pumpkin patches category.

But based on what I’ve seen on Instagram and web searches, I’ve categorized these here. However, my opinion can be changed! Definitely comment below if you’ve visited and think they’re photo-worthy spots that deserve to be moved up into my “Best Pumpkin Patches in Dallas” category!

Fall Photo Spots in Dallas

Here are some additional photo spots for your fall-themed photos in Dallas!

These spots aren’t really stay-and-linger or full fall-photoshoot spots… more like “let’s grab a quick photo here” spots!

(I got the photo above at Ruibals in 2019!)

23. Highland Park Town Hall

This has to be one of the prettiest town halls in America! And with their epic pumpkin display, they’re a must for a quick photo come fall!

24. La La Land Kind Cafe

This trendy coffee shop has its cute yellow truck on-site year-round. But come fall, the truck is filled with pumpkins!

So grab your coffee and their signature toast and grab a pic here!

The photo above is at the Greenville location (which is cuter!), but the Oak Lawn location also has a truck filled with pumpkins!

25. Fall leaves in the Park Cities

Our leaves don’t change until November, but when they do, it can be really beautiful!

I love driving through the Park Cities when the leaves change, scouring for good fall photo spots.

We snapped the photo above right by Highland Park Presbyterian Church. It required a zoom lens- this was shot at 120mm.

26. The red trees in The Village Dallas

We lived in The Village Dallas for five years! And each year, come fall, two trees by the bridge across the lakes always turn the prettiest red color!

To get there, park in a non-reserved spot near The Village Lakes office and walk on the path around the lake until you reach the “Kiss Me Here” bridge.

27. The Shops of Highland Park

This last spot we just stumbled upon the other day! It’s located on the steps leading from the parking lot to The Shops of Highland Park (right behind Merit Coffee).

The pumpkins and pretty blue tiles make for a quick and easy pumpkin photo!

In conclusion…

I hope I’ve inspired you to get out there and take some fall photos!

  1. Hi Jasmine!
    Wanted to see if we could be considered to be listed as part of your extinguished list of Pumpkin Patches in the DFW area!

    We have been contracted with the City of Irving to provide a pumpkin patch at one of their city parks every weekend in October.

    This is very unique in the fact that Fritz Park actually has a fully operational petting farm in their park! We have managed it the past two summers and this is the first year we have introduced a Pumpkin Patch!

    I myself have been in the children’s animal entertainment business for 18 years, and have worked events all over the state of Texas, so this is second nature to my company.

    Our admission combo package includes pony ride, petting zoo feed cup along with a Magic Pumpkin Seed for the child to plant and grow their own baby pumpkin!

    We opened this past weekend and the support we received from not only the community, but surrounding areas, was overwhelming. I encourage you to check out our link and also our FB page.


    Thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing from you!
