Pumpkin Nights was founded just two years at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. It now runs through the month of October in four different cities across the U.S.: Salt Lake City, Los Angeles, Denver, and Auburn.
The festival's mission is clear. It's a magnificent celebration of one of the most magical times of the year, complete with spooks, scares, and a showcase of local artists. There's something for the entire family at this one-of-a-kind festival. Both children and adults will be utterly mesmerized.
The festival is a wonderland of over 3,000 handcarved pumpkins. It's a spectacle that's sure to blow you away! On top of that, you'll discover a variety of entertainment and games awaiting you at the main festival area called "Pumpkin Central".
The half-mile walking path through the festival is simply awe-inspiring. Prepare to be bombarded by a multitude of larger-than-life displays and mult-sensory experiences.
Be sure to take a walk down the fan-favorite attraction known as "Pumpkin Passage". The delightful smell of pumpkins in the air, a mysterious foggy atmosphere, and enchanting music will lure you in. As you look up, you'll notice hundreds of magical jack-o-lanterns hanging right above your head.
