PUMPKIN FESTIVAL

October 15 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Pumpkin Festival is set to return to the Arboretum after a one-year hiatus. Please mark your calendars for the pumpkin giveaway on Sunday, October 10 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. and for the festival itself, scheduled on Friday, October 15 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. and on Saturday, October 16 from 3:00 to 9:00 p.m. We look forward to seeing you there!

Our Pumpkin Festival takes place in mid-October and features a pumpkin giveaway, jack-o’-lantern carving contest, lighted nighttime displays, and family activities. Volunteers help with event set-up, contest registration, jack-o’-lantern illumination, games and crafts, refreshments, and more. Many thanks to the Vargo family who has sponsored the Pumpkin Festival for nine years.

The creativity and variety of the entries delight festival-goers! You can see some of the jack-o’-lanterns that were entered in the 2019 contest in Penn State News.
