Pumpkinferno comes to life at Upper Canada Village

September 12, 2022

Make a night of it – save on an overnight stay at select Cornwall accommodations!


Upper Canada Village is excited to bring back the fan-favourite, family-friendly Pumpkinferno for its 11th season, beginning September 30, 2022. This festive fall event will feature multiple brand-new exhibits of hand-carved artificial pumpkins along with many fan favourites from years past.

When the sun goes down, the daily toil of 19th century village life fades away and Upper Canada Village is transformed into an enchanted wonderland with 21 brilliant pumpkin sculpture exhibits installed throughout the one-kilometre village canvas, all ablaze under the night sky.

This year’s show will showcase seven brand new exhibits, the most in any year since its inaugural year. New exhibits include Lovers’ Lane, featuring famous couples; fantastic beasts and mythical creatures in Legendary Lore; The Great Outdoors, an homage to camping; The Child Within Us featuring vignettes of children at play; a tropical oasis in Flamingo Fiesta; a drool-worthy ode to snacks in Mega Munchies; and P15 K19 F9 N7 Mad Lab cooked up by Pumpkinferno’s mad scientists.
