Pumpkin Days at Tyler Arboretum is a long standing local tradition, and this year the celebration is better than ever. This annual fundraising event benefits the Arboretum and is the quintessential fall festival, held in a beautiful natural setting!

Pumpkin Days Celebration

Sing along with Makin’ Music: Rockin’ Rhythms Band. New this year, Native American Performers, Toni Seaflower & Bart Standing Elk, accompanied by We Dubi Cung Drummers. Local favorite, Penncrest High School Band (on Saturday), Go Pound Sand! Say these words and Master Sand Sculptor, Chuck Feld, and he will do just that as he creates a Tyler masterpiece. Get spooked in our always-popular Haunted Barn-a teenage favorite; tour the Arboretum in our Hay Wagon and have your cheek painted. Bounce around all day in our Wizard’s Castle Moon Bounce and Bungee Trampoline. Paint your favorite Pumpkin Patch pumpkin; enjoy ongoing pumpkin contests, games and activities. Plus: Roving stilt walking juggler, clowns, Wally Goose, Stubby the Helicopter and more!
