The Magical Glass Pumpkin Patch is a San Francisco Bay Area tradition!
Every year it features hand-blown glass pumpkins from over a dozen local glass artists. The patch is a must whether you're shopping for holiday gifts, preparing the Thanksgiving table, or simply want to enjoy a display of over 2,000 art pieces at once.
A percentage of the proceeds supports the Los Gatos High School art program and other programs in need. We have raised over $135,000 to date!
