Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, Dallas, Texas“It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” is the theme for this year’s Autumn at the Arboretum fest, set for September 21 through October 31, 2019, in the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, 8525 Garland Road, Dallas, Texas.

For the 14th year, the centerpiece will be a Pumpkin Village featuring pumpkin houses and creative displays utilizing more than 90,000 pumpkins, gourds and squash.

The festival features a ‘Great Pumpkin’ filled with marigolds; Linus, Sally and Franklin looking through the pumpkin patch; Snoopy and Woodstock sitting atop his dog house; Lucy giving garden advice at her advice booth; and Schroeder standing near his giant topiary piano.

Guests can snap selfies with Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty, and Marcie behind the iconic brick wall, get lost with Pig Pen in the hay bale maze, and see the Peanuts Gang at their school house along with their multi-gourd decorated house for their autumn carnival. Named one of “America’s Best Pumpkin Festivals” by Fodor’s Travel, the festival features all the colors of fall including 150,000 autumn flowers accented by pumpkins, gourds and squash.
