INSTAGRAM-WORTHY PUMPKIN PATCHES IN TAMPA BAY – 2023

The ultimate Insta-worthy pumpkin patch is of course Gallaghers. There’s a vintage truck with fall florals, a wall of pumpkins in crates, adorable chairs, farm animals — literally everything you need for the perfect shot for the ‘gram.
Located in St. Pete for more than 30 years, this family-owned business is great to capture super cute photos of your little pumpkins while you select the best of the ‘patch’ for your home! Check out the patch’s Instagram page for photo inspiration. As an added bonus, this lot is dog-friendly!
FREE Admission; pumpkin prices vary

Another picture-perfect patch is located at Hyde Park Village. Abundant pumpkins, cute signs and seats and the quaint Hyde Park Village backdrop make for a great pumpkin photo op. As a bonus, proceeds benefit the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. The patch will be located by the fountain near Pottery Barn.
“Adoptable Puppies from The Humane Society of Tampa Bay” event also returns. This aspect of the Pumpkin Patch provides an avenue for attendees to bond with and adopt pups, while also fostering a deeper understanding of The Humane Society’s mission and efforts. This will take place on September 30, October 7, and October 21 from 10am-12pm.
