MIT Great Glass Pumpkin Patch

Saturday 9/28/19, 10am - 3pm, MIT Kresge Oval

The MIT Great Glass Pumpkin Patch is an annual sale of more than 2,000 handblown glass pumpkins -- lovingly created by students and instructors at the MIT Glass Lab. Prices start at $35 and go up to over $350 for the fancier ones. Most pumpkins are in the range of $50 to $100. Every pumpkin is unique. Arrive early for a good selection. Proceeds from this event benefit The MIT Glass Lab, where the MIT community can learn and practice the art of glassblowing. The sale takes place on Kresge Oval on the MIT campus.

If you'd like to scope out your favorite pumpkins and hang out with some glass blowers ahead of the sale, there will be a preview opening on Friday, September 27th from 5-8PM. All 2,000+ pumpkins (with prices) will be on display. THERE ARE NO SALES AT THE PREVIEW EVENT.
