Pumpkin Walk 2023

October 1 - October 31

Mon-Sat: 9:00am-5:30pm, Sun: 10:00am-4:00pm

Free Admission

The Pumpkin Walk is a fun, festive, and free family-oriented event hosted by Bainbridge Gardens.

People of all ages come to walk along Bainbridge Gardens' historic Nature Trail, to view hundreds of hand designed pumpkins.  For many families, the Pumpkin Walk has become a Halloween tradition.

Donations are accepted at this popular, non-scary event and benefit the Bainbridge Island Boys and Girls Club.

What to expect at the Pumpkin Walk
  • Trail of Pumpkins - Our historic nature trail is decorated with hundreds of hand-painted pumpkins and our own themed vignettes. Over one hundred pumpkins are decorated by staff members at Bainbridge Gardens and the kids at the Boys and Girls Club. Over the month, customers, neighbors, and community members add their own creations. Last year we ended up with over 400 pumpkins!
  • Photo areas - The nursery is filled with pumpkins and decorations, and there are several photo taking places - geared toward young ones - around the nursery.
  • Mini straw maze - There is a very tiny straw maze for the little ones.
  • Food and drink - Saturdays we have invited food trucks to provide lunch. And Sweet Dahlia will be around on three Sunday mornings to provide coffee. See the schedule below.
  • And yes, there is candy!

We need your creations!
We invite and encourage you to bring in a painted or carved pumpkin for the Pumpkin Walk.  When you bring in your finished creation, you can place your pumpkin in the woods or have us do it for you. Completed pumpkins may be dropped off any time in October. Last year we were blown away by the amazing contributions by the community! Wow! Thank you!

Note: We encourage decorators to leave their pumpkins whole and paint their pumpkins with acrylic paint or permanent markers rather than carve them so they last longer. Carved pumpkins only last for 3-5 days in the woods and watercolors disappear quickly in our blustery October weather.

Pumpkin Walk Safety
Please maintain a safe social distance on the trail and throughout the grounds.
Parents must accompany young children on the trail.
Candy will be distributed by a staff member, but parents should use discretion nonetheless.
The Nature Trail is wide enough for wheelchairs, but the trail is not paved and may be difficult for many wheelchairs. We suggest having someone check out the trail beforehand. Most customers are able to bring strollers on the trail without difficulty.

Again, Port Madison Enterprises is sponsoring the Pumpkin Walk!
