This year’s event is expected to be the biggest yet, offering something for everyone in the family to enjoy. With 26 market vendors, it’s the biggest Painted Prairie market of the year. Fun activities for the whole family abound, including free treats (apple cider, popcorn, candied apples, and pumpkin doughnuts) a pumpkin patch, horse-drawn hayrides, face painting, pumpkin decorating, and a family-friendly scavenger hunt featuring roaming themed characters.

Don’t forget to come dressed in your best fall costume – you don’t want to miss our costume contest! Think you have the best costume? We have some incredible prizes up for grabs, including three overnight stays and family four-packs to the Gaylord Rockies Resort’s ICE! Holiday programming. And, for our furry friends, dress them up for a chance to win a $125 Chewy gift card, courtesy of Painted Prairie. See the Painted Prairie website for contest details.
