Celebrating 10 years this year. With so many intricately-carved pumpkins and dozens of themed sections, you and your family will have a hard time choosing your favorites! Keep tabs on their Facebook page for changes in their scheduling due to weather. If that happens and you have an unused ticket for a day they close due to weather, you can exchange it for any other Sunday-Thursday of the show.

Entering through the Iroquois Amphitheatre, you’ll wander the wide, accessible walking paths through the historic woods, surrounded by thousands of intricately-carved pumpkins, all set among a “spooky-not-scary” backdrop of decorations and light.

New this year, you can purchase tickets to the Pre-lit Bash coming up on Oct 4th from 6:00 – 8:30 pm. There will have drinks, food, and entertainment from CirqueLouis—then front-of-the-line access to the trail on opening night. Don’t miss out! Limited tickets available

Tickets are available now! To avoid sell-out nights, purchasing tickets in advance is suggested. The region’s best Halloween experience is back as a nightly walk-through at Iroquois Park from October 4th-October 31. More than 5,000 carved pumpkins lining a secluded wooded area.
