The Cal Poly Pomona Farm Store will host its twenty-first annual Pumpkin Festival on Saturday October and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The event will provide activities for the whole family, including a petting zoo, horse rides, a corn maze, live entertainment, and food and craft vendors. You may want to bring a wagon to haul your pumpkins and wear comfortable shoes as you search through the patch for the perfect pumpkin.
Enjoy a stack of pancakes and some delicious Cal Poly Pomona orange juice at our Pancake Breakfast from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Adults are $5 and children 12 and under are $4. If you miss the pancake breakfast there will be plenty of other food choices such as pizza, subs, hot dogs, tacos, barbeque, and much more.
Admission to the festival and parking is free, but prices vary for certain activities once inside. The Farm Store is located at 4102 S. University Drive, Pomona.
