Tickets on sale to members on September 9. Tickets on sale to the public September 15. Make lasting memories with family and friends. Get your tickets early!

We made changes this year, with the health and safety of our visitors and Garden staff in mind. The trail is one way, with separate entrance and exit, and there is extra space between pumpkins to allow for social distancing. Face coverings are required for anyone 2 years and older.

SEE AMAZINGLY INTRICATE CARVED PUMPKINS
More than 1,000 hand-carved pumpkins—some as large as 150 pounds—will light up the night at our Halloween event. Night of 1,000 Jack-o’-Lanterns takes advantage of the Garden's glorious fall setting, and features only real pumpkins. It's an unforgettable experience.

BOO-TANICAL GARDEN TRAIL
Using scalpels, knives, gouges, and power tools, artists for the New York-based company Rise of the Jack O’Lanterns spend up to 15 hours sculpting a single pumpkin. The LED-lit jack-o’-lanterns will be staged along a festive, paved pathway.

GHOULISH DRINKS & EATS
Seasonal drinks and snacks such as spiked cider and ale will be available.

COVID-19 NOTICE
The health and safety of our staff and our visitors is our top priority. This year, we've made modifications to allow for social distancing, and we continue to monitor state guidelines in response to the COVID-19 health crisis.

New procedures include:

Face coverings are required for anyone 2 years and older
Limited capacity
Longer, one-way trail
Separate entrance and exit
Keeping the entire event outdoors
No interactive elements

The Garden will close each day at 5 p.m. and will reopen at 6 p.m. for ticketed guests only. This event will take place rain or shine. Tripods and monopods are not allowed during event hours.
