2017 Season: Sept. 10 - Oct. 21. Celebrate the season at Papa's Pumpkin Patch, just 1.5 miles north of Bismarck, North Dakota. Since 1983, thousands of people have made it tradition to come to Papa's! Let the kids run on the pumpkin-lined paths while you visit with friends over a slice of fresh pumpkin pie with whipped cream. There are dozens of photo opportunities, including the Great Pumpkin's Chair, zip lines, pedal carts, the famous Bale Mazes, pony rides, obstacle courses, Sebastian's train ride, hay rides, a pumpkin trebuchet and pumpkin cannon and more! We look forward to greeting you at Papa's. Want to know what's going on at Papa's right now?
