Pumpkin Fest is a great community event. It is great fun for people of all ages.
Christine M. · October 29, 2012
The kids and us had a wonderful time there! People are friendly and the prices are reasonable. The only thing that was expensive were the carnival rides but there is still loads more to do. The perfect way to celebrate fall. Highly recommended!

What You'll Get


The harvest season conjures up countless memories—the crunch of fallen leaves, the smell of pumpkin pie, and the melodious sound of a scarecrow belting out the blues. Summon seasonal feelings with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $10 for unlimited pumpkin carving for one (a $20 value)
  • $38 for unlimited pumpkin carving for four (an $80 value)<p>

Each guest receives a wristband that can be used every day of the festival, which runs from Thursday, October 18, to Saturday, October 20. Carving stations provide patrons with as many prescooped, ready-to-carve pumpkins as they like, and each decorated pumpkin is then contributed to the festival’s wall of jack-o’-lanterns in hopes of setting a new Guinness world record.

About Great Highwood Pumpkin Festival


The soft glow of 30,919 carved pumpkins lit up the night sky on Saturday, October 22, 2011—the night the town of Highwood set the Guinness world record for most jack-o’-lanterns lit in one location. And this year should be no different. The three-day Great Highwood Pumpkin Festival, which has gained coverage from The Rosie Show and Trib Local, invites guests from all over the country to contribute to its wall of carved pumpkins, an experience that will be captured by HGTV’s “Pumpkin Wars”.

Patrons can decorate prescooped pumpkins at the designated carving stations (or bring their own precarved candidate) as they enjoy a weekend of live music on multiple stages, treats from local vendors, a gourmet farmers’ market on Saturday, hayrides, and a New Orleans–inspired night parade. Participants can even test out their newly carved pumpkin sneakers during the festival’s 5K run, which raises funds and awareness for the Leukemia Research Foundation. The festival culminates with the lighting of the wall of jack-o’-lanterns at 7 p.m. on Saturday, and, when all is said and done, pumpkins won’t be left in the dark as their owners are encouraged to take their record-breaking masterpieces home with them.
