Pumpkin Nights | FAQ's

Austin & Dallas/Fort Worth

When you purchase your tickets, you’ll be asked to select a date and time slot for your visit. You may enter the festival within the thirty minutes window you selected. Once you’re inside, you can stay as long as you’d like.

Tickets must be purchased online in advance. Walk-up ticket sales are not guaranteed as most time slots sell out.

The venue for Pumpkin Nights is a farm. We try to make our village and pumpkin walk accessible to all, but keep in mind the course is made up of grass, loose dirt, gravel, sand, and hills that can be challenging for some. Every year, we see plenty of strollers and some wheelchairs come through the event.

We remain open during minor rainstorms. However, if lightning or excessive rain does occur - we may be forced to close temporarily. If this impacts your scheduled tickets, purchasesers will receive instructions via email to help transfer their reservation to another date and time, free of charge.

If you can no longer make the timeslot of your original purchase, you may transfer each ticket for a $5 fee up until 48-hours BEFORE your scheduled time, after that we will be unable to transfer any tickets. Also note, we are unable to transfer any tickets to soldout timeslots.

To begin this process, please email info@pumpkinnights.com with your order number and the date you'd like to transfer to.

There are real pumpkins throughout the festival--some carved, some painted, and some displayed in their natural beauty. Keep an eye out for one of our artists carving a giant pumpkin on site.

Our larger installations are made using over 5,000 hand-carved artificial pumpkins. Since these pumpkins won’t rot, our artists can design and build taller, even more impressive structures, which you can enjoy throughout the entire month (and without the yucky smell of a real pumpkin).

The path is approximately a half-mile long. You’re welcome to wander through the course as many times as you like!

As you walk through the front gates, you’ll enter The Pumpkin Village, our main festival area. Here, you’ll find food and beverages, photo-ops, The fire show, and more. Each city has a unique lineup of vendors and entertainers. Be sure to check the event calendar on your city-specific page.

If you arrive before sundown, we recommend checking out the festivities in The Pumpkin Village before you enjoy walking through the lands. We’ll have food, drinks, live performances, and pumpkin carvers in action. The displays along our walking path are extra magical once the sun sets, but you're welcome to walk through as soon as you arrive.
