Welcome!

October 14, 2017 The Waimea Pumpkin Patch Fall Festival was created to become an annual celebration of Waimeaʻs Autumn Harvest and season. Itʻs purpose is to support and promote the agrarian community and lifestyle of Waimea and itʻs rural neighbors. It is also an opportunity for us to share our Waimea District Park Complex in the heart of Parker Ranch. This is our story. Thank you for joining us for the inaugural Waimea Pumpkin Patch Fall Festival. We are making history together on this day and celebrating what it means to “do” community together. May you and your families enjoy themselves. And thank you to all community members that have made this event possible and a reality through their encouragement and support.

As residents we love it too. However, this seemingly sleepy town is teeming with energy. It is like a dragonfly – lighting about industriously – almost imperceptible but very productive. The heartbeat of the town can be heard through the thundering of horses and cattle hooves. Feel the plowing of the earth beneath your feet as you walk and see the fine dust dancing in the air above the farmerʻs head. Experience the pelting of wind and rain on a rather sunshiny day.
