Pumpkin Nights


Ready for some spooktacular fun in Salt Lake City? This October, Pumpkin Nights, will launch in Salt Lake City—inviting the community to experience the essence of Halloween while walking through ten immersive lands created with over 3,000 hand-carved pumpkins. The outdoor, family friendly Halloween walkthrough will be open for 17 days—kicking off on Friday, October 13 through Sunday, October 29 at the Utah State Fairpark.

 

Pumpkin Nights captivated Halloween-lovers with its exceptional 2016 launch in Twin Cities, attracting over 20,000 visitors in 18 days, selling out multiple dates. The Salt Lake City location will be home to several of the iconic installations of Twin Cities, such as Pumpkin Passage—a nod to Harry Potter’s Great Hall, Rum River Pirates—the tropical island land where pirates protect the pumpkin treasure, Dia de los Muertos—where a pumpkin mariachi band serenades visitors, and sugar skulls hang overhead, and The Great Pumpkin Reef—an underwater pumpkin marvel, filled with bubbles, mermaids, and coral.

 

In addition to the immersive lands, the Festival of Pumpkin Nights offers a variety of food, seasonal beverages, movie screenings, and activities for the whole family. Visitors are highly encouraged to come dressed in their Halloween costumes; masks are permitted, but props and weapons should be kept at home.

 

Tickets will be available for purchase online starting on Tuesday, September 5at 9:00 a.m. MDT at www.PumpkinNights.com.

 

Tickets are sold for specific dates and times. Children three and under are free, kids (4-12) and seniors (60+) are $16, and adults are $20. Family Packs, includes two adult and two kid tickets, are available for $64.
