The third annual Jack Pine Glass Pumpkin Festival is an outdoor art show experience featuring local artists and food vendors selling their craft.

Join us any day between Friday, September 23 through Sunday, September 25, 2022 as Jack Pine Studio hosts the Glass Pumpkin Festival. We will have hundreds of one of a kind, blown glass pumpkins for sale arranged in front of the studio. There will be many other fine craft vendors and artists selling an array of works from disciplines like metal, fabric, wood, and painting Jack Pine has curated and is featuring a collection of very fine craftsmen and craftswomen from the region and beyond.

Something for Everyone

Though pumpkins are the main attraction, there are other things to enjoy. With the backdrop of the beautiful Hocking Hills during autumn, the journey and setting are part of the whole experience. We are featuring local food vendors and artisan crafts of all sorts, in addition to the broad display of Jack Pine’s signature, hand-blown glass pumpkins. This may be the perfect time to find that unique Christmas gift for that special someone on your Christmas list.

Jack Pine Studio is a hand blown glass studio and gallery located in the heart of Hocking Hills. Jack has been blowing glass for over 20 years and his work has been featured in galleries and museums throughout the country.
