Pumpkinfest at Tollgate Farm

Come, take a wagon ride to the pumpkin patch to pick your perfect pumpkin. Food, music, farm animals, educational exhibits, and children’s activities all make for a fun fall outing for all ages. The Novi and Walled Lake Public Libraries will participate in this special fundraiser for educational programming at the farm with story times throughout the day and children’s authors reading their stories. In addition to a children’s straw maze and pumpkin bowling, we’ll have antique tractors and the MSU Bug House. Jeff Pavlik returns to the farm with a foodways reenactment near the pumpkin patch. Entry, educational exhibits, children’s Strawland and music are free of charge. Tickets sold for cash or credit for pumpkins, food, and select children’s activities. Parking is $5.
