The award-winning event Pumpkinferno returns for its 12th season at Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg, starting Friday, September 29th.

This family-friendly attraction involves a captivating luminary installation featuring over 7,000 handcrafted, glowing artificial pumpkins meticulously arranged along a curated self-tour path through the historic village. Attendees of all ages can expect to be immersed in a magical world of light and artistry, making Pumpkinferno an enchanting experience for everyone.

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 dozens of brilliant pumpkin sculpture exhibits installed throughout the one-kilometre village canvas, all ablaze under the night sky.

The pumpkins have been designed and carved by a talented group of young artists from eastern Ontario. These designers and carvers were selected based on their penchant for design, whether in their field of study or as a personal hobby.
