Fall Weddings

Available Friday, Sept. 16th through October 31st

A Fall wedding at Vala’s means that Vala’s Pumpkin Patch is open to the public. The Pavilion or Wooden Picnic Shelter is a private area for your guests but keep in mind that other customers of Vala’s will be on the property. Your event may be for a rehearsal dinner, a reception or a wedding ceremony with a reception. Closing time for the farm on Friday and Saturday is 10pm.

A fall wedding event at Vala’s Pumpkin Patch can be a magical, beautiful experience. Our Pavilion makes the perfect venue for a rehearsal dinner, reception or even a small wedding ceremony with reception.

For all events September 16th through October 31, Vala's Pumpkin Patch is open to the public and all of our fall festival activities are in full swing. That means that, while your guests will have a private area to gather, there will be other people on the farm enjoying Vala’s Pumpkin Patch at the time of your event. But, it also means that your guests will be able to enjoy all the festival activities themselves (try swinging by the Bouncing Pillows as a group!).
