The 17th annual Autumn at the Arboretum: A Fall Fairy Tale runs September 17–October 31 at the Dallas Arboretum. The fall festival, presented by Reliant, features more than 100,000 pumpkins, gourds and squash from THE Pumpkin Capital of Texas, Floydada.

A Fall Fairy Tale showcases the return of Cinderella’s carriage, along with themed pumpkin houses that make up the acclaimed Pumpkin Village. Other “gourd-eous” displays showcase classic tales of Jack and The Beanstalk, The Three Little Pigs and The Sword in the Stone and even a magic carpet ride selfie experience from One Thousand and One Nights.

Autumn at the Arboretum showcases breathtaking colors of fall including 150,000 autumn flowers accented by pumpkins, gourds and squash. The event includes the popular Mommy and Me Mondays and Tiny Tot Tuesdays, a hay bale maze, a pumpkin patch with pumpkins for purchase, live music and more. The Dallas Arboretum’s popular festival is one “the Best Fall Festivals to Celebrate the Season” by Country Living Magazine.
