Celebrate fall and support glass arts education at the Pumpkin Fiesta, an annual October event featuring hundreds of handmade glassblown pumpkins on display, live furnace glassblowing, and Make Your Own activities…all in support of Sonoran Glass School.

  • Browse colorful glass pumpkins, gourds, acorns, and other fall-themed glass art of all styles and prices on display throughout our gallery and sculpture garden.
  • Watch glassblowing artists create pumpkins live in our Hot Shop and tour our studios.
  • Create a glass pumpkin alongside a professional through a Make Your Own Pumpkin Experience for $85
    (a popular activity that takes about 30 minutes offered on a first come, first served basis
    …so come earlier if you want to create a unique pumpkin).

Admission is free and all proceeds from pumpkin sales and experiences support the 501(c) 3 non-profit Sonoran Glass School and it’s mission and community programs.

The event also features a fall arts-and-crafts table for younger kids, cookies, beverages, and more.

All proceeds from pumpkin patch sales and experiences benefit the non-profit 501(c)3 Sonoran Glass School, and its educational programs. Sonoran Glass School is located at 633 w. 18th St near the Historic Barrio Viejo in Tucson, Arizona. (view map)
