Pumpkin Carving Festival with Funky Pumpkins at Cortlandt Farm
October 16 @ 12:00 pm - October 30 @ 6:00 pmFree
Funky Pumpkins, a group of Hudson Valley’s professional pumpkin artists, will be at Cortlandt Farm everyday October 16 – 31, carving Halloween “art” pumpkins: Farm fresh pumpkins that are carved and sculpted by hand, with realistic figures, original designs and intricate details. They’re truly the best Jack o’ Lanterns you’ve ever seen!
• Take part in free, socially distanced pumpkin carving demonstrations! See how our artists carve, sculpt and illustrate pumpkins as an art form. New designs will be created every day, on the spot and available for purchase. No advanced registration or ordering required.
• Have Funky Pumpkins carve a Jack o’ Lantern just for you! Choose from 12+ designs (including Batman, Elsa, Dracula, Frankenstein, Elmo and others), or have us do a custom portrait of a pet or person! (Orders for custom-carved pumpkins take a few days to do so orders need to be placed in advance, in store at Cortlandt Farm or online at funkypumpkins.com. Last day to order is October 27.)
• Get what you need for your own Pumpkin Show and Backyard Halloween Party! For a true Halloween spectacular at home (that also makes for easy social distancing!), scatter several custom-carved pumpkins around lawn, and cluster a few of the 3D sculpted pumpkins on a table. Decorate with ears of maize corn and fall flowers, and invite friends and neighbors to come BYOC. (Bring Your Own Candy). Cortlandt Farm has everything you need to make Halloween extra-special, all in one place!
Don’t miss the best Jack o’ Lanterns you’ve ever seen!
