Visit the lands made out of pumpkins

GTU Featured Guest

Pumpkin Nights is bringing the highly anticipated Most Delightful Halloween Tradition to Utah State Fairpark this year! This will be the first time the event is held in Salt Lake City.

Pumpkin Nights invites visitors 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.

Pumpkin Nights provides a safe and fun environment during the Halloween season. It’s great for date night, grandparents to bring their grandkids, families, girls night out—really for any occasion!

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 feature lands 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 and drink vendors, fire dancers, a hay bale maze, a Strider Adventure Zone, movie showings, 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.
