16th Annual

pumpkins on the green

We invite you to support Irvine Nature Center’s signature annual fundraiser benefiting our organization’s efforts to connect children and families with nature.
If you are a business leader and want to gain valuable access to the Irvine audience PLUS attend an amazing event, consider a CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP. If you believe in the valuable resource that Irvine provides the community and want to support our efforts, please consider attending. Tickets for the VIP EXPERIENCE will go on sale in July.  A limited number of general admission tickets will be available beginning in September.
Why support Pumpkins on the Green? For 49 years, Irvine has been a leader of environmental education for children and adults through nature-based learning. As the largest independent nature center in the region, Irvine delivers hundreds of programs annually and is the home to over 50 animal ambassadors and the steward of over 211 acres. At Irvine, we inspire people to explore, respect and protect nature.
Why attend Pumpkins on the Green? Year after year, it is said that Pumpkins on the Green is THE BEST FALL PARTY in the region – featuring live music, spectacular food, expertly crafted cocktails, an extraordinary silent auction, animal encounters, and more surprises.
Thank you to our corporate sponsors, underwriters, event committee, volunteers, and vendors for making Pumpkins on the Green a success year after year.
