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.

Pumpkin Carving Rules


All pumpkins can only be carved, please do not paint, staple, pin or place beads on your pumpkins- as the pumpkins will be donated to several local farms for pigs and goats to enjoy after the event. Enter as many pumpkins as you like.
