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 21-23, 2022). 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!

If carving pumpkins isn't your style, check out our other volunteer need: prepping the gardens and grounds for winter and Spirits!
