2nd Annual Great Wilton Pumpkin Fest promises fall family fun on Saturday, October 15, 2:00 – 4:00
The 2nd Annual Great Wilton Pumpkin Fest will take place on Saturday, October 15th from 2:00 – 4:00. It’s fun for all ages as with all things pumpkin! Play fall themed lawn games such as cornhole and pumpkin tic-tac-toe, or join costumed colonial docents as they cook over an open hearth, weave and spin flax, or hammer away in the blacksmith’s forge, all while munching on complimentary cider and donuts.
Visitors can also pick up their very own pumpkin to bring home! Browse the pumpkin patch of the Wilton Kiwanis club on the Society’s front lawn and purchase the perfect one. Then head over to the pumpkin decorating station and put your creativity on display. Kiwanis will also have small gourds and mums on sale to help fill out your personal harvest display.
Several exhibitions, including Lives and Landscapes: Art from the Permanent Collection will be open to explore, as well as the Society’s gift shop, the Betts Store. Enjoy a full day of pumpkin fun!
