Glass Pumpkin Patch and Desert Foothills Book Festival Return

The Holland Community Center is excited to usher in the fall season by welcoming back two popular events over the weekend of October 20, 2023: the Annual Glass Pumpkin Patch Fundraiser, and the Desert Foothills Book Festival. With over 1,000 glass pumpkins handmade by acclaimed artist Gregory Tomb available for purchase, the Glass Pumpkin Patch will be held Friday through Sunday, Oct. 20-22 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

Presented in partnership with Desert Foothills Library, the Book Festival will showcase approximately 70 award-winning local authors and will take place on Saturday, Oct. 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free for both events, which will be held at the Holland Community Center, 34250 N. 60th Street, Scottsdale, Ariz. 85266.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Glass Pumpkin Patch will celebrate the spirit of Halloween while raising proceeds for the Holland Community Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to enhancing arts, education and community in the Desert Foothills region.
