Mission Statement

The mission of the Newtown Pumpkin Festival is to celebrate Halloween in magical way, bringing the community together to enjoy this spectacle of light, along with food, games, music, and craft and merchandise tents.


Ticket information

It is our goal this year for the festival to be free to the public, so your contributions will help us achieve that goal. Sponsors are needed to defray the cost of safety and security personnel, sanitation, display and communications. To become a sponsor and receive a sponsorship form, please send an email to traci@abeadofroses.com. Car pooling is suggested. Enter as many pumpkins as you can carve! Food and craft vendors, games, music and the lighting of the pumpkins at 6 p.m.
