Pumpkinferno at Upper Canada Village Enters its Second Decade

Pumpkinferno at Upper Canada Village runs nightly from Friday, September 30 until Sunday, October 30.

Morrisburg, ON — Upper Canada Village is excited to bring back fan-favourite, family-friendly Pumpkinferno for its 11th season in Morrisburg, beginning September 30, 2022. This festive fall event will feature multiple brand-new exhibits of hand-carved artificial pumpkins and 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 1-km Village canvas, all ablaze across under the night sky.

This year’s show will showcase 7 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.

About Pumpkinferno

Since originating the Pumpkinferno experience more than 10 years ago, Upper Canada Village has become Ontario’s pre-eminent expert on pumpkin events and artificial pumpkin carving, assembling a talented group of artists who spend four months each year designing and carving thousands of pumpkins to bring this artful exhibit to life.

Pumpkinferno’s 10th season was a sell-out success, welcoming more than 43,000 guests to the Village, representing $6.6 million in visitor spending in the Morrisburg area.
