Stenciling & Carving Pumpkins at Reiman Gardens

Reiman Gardens is gearing up for our annual pumpkin stenciling and carving event this October. Every year, hundreds of jack o' lanterns are featured throughout the Gardens during our annual Spirits in the Gardens community event (October 15-17, 2021). Volunteers from around the community make this event so special by stenciling and carving pumpkins with unique designs and creations. Join the fun this year!

Stenciling Pumpkins, October 8-10: Draw designs on pumpkins with stencils

Carving Pumpkins, October 13-15: Carve pumpkins that have been stenciled

  • If you would like to participate, but do not have interest in carving, volunteers are needed to gut pumpkins October 13 and 14.

Individuals and groups are welcome to volunteer! Stenciling materials, carving tools, and pumpkins provided by Reiman Gardens. All pumpkins must stay onsite. Volunteers must be 13+ years old to carve. Space is limited!

Volunteers must pre-register for this event - Sorry, we cannot accommodate any walk-ins.
