SUISUN – Each Saturday and Sunday from October 7th-22nd, the Western Railway Museum presents its annual Pumpkin Patch Festival. This classic harvest festival is a highlight of autumn, and a family tradition for many.

The Museum opens at 9:30am. The first express train leaves the Museum at 10am, with departures every half-hour until 4pm. The ride on a historic life-sized electrical-powered train takes visitors back in time 100 years on a scenic five-mile trip to Gum Grove Station, a wooded glen far from the trappings of modern life.

At Gum Grove, guests can experience the huge hay bale fort, delicious food, tractor rides, music, games, and of course pumpkins for sale—just in time for Halloween.

It’s a real community effort, with three individual Rotary Clubs (Fairfield-Suisun, Cordelia, and Dixon), and 100 Museum volunteers all rallying together to make the event a success.

All proceeds from ticket sales benefit the Western Railway Museum (a nonprofit educational institution) and the local Rotary Clubs who re-grant thousands of dollars to our community and youth activities each year.

Advance tickets sales are available at wrm.org, or cash only is accepted at the Pumpkin Patch Festival. Ticket includes entrance to the Western Railway Museum, Pumpkin Patch Festival, unlimited train rides, use of the Museum’s spacious and shaded picnic grounds, and free parking. Please note that there are no advanced reservations.

Ride the Train to the Pumpkin Patch
Weekends, October 7th – 22nd.
