Award-winning Pumpkinferno is returning this fall for its 11th season, where Upper Canada Village is reviving some of its most popular exhibits plus showcasing 7 brand new themes – the most in any show since its inaugural year!
Take a tour through this spectacular outdoor art exhibit of over 7,000 hand-carved pumpkins all lit at night along a kilometre long path in a picturesque 19th-century backdrop. Open nightly from late September through October, you won’t want to miss this chance to walk in a world of pumpkins.
The carved pumpkins you will see at Pumpkinferno are realistic, artificial pumpkins, whose forms have been shaped from molds of real pumpkins.
The pumpkins have been designed and carved by a talented group of young artists from the Eastern Ontario region. These designers and carvers were selected based on their penchant for design, whether in their field of study or as a personal hobby. They embark on this monumental project every spring, designing, carving, and constructing the amazing array of pumpkin-carved installations you will discover on your tour. Each spring through summer, a group of new and returning designer/carvers create all that you will see that is new and vibrant, added to our collection of amazing exhibits at Pumpkinferno!
Pumpkinferno is a family event, and all are welcome.
