Fall is here! That’s right, it’s time for pumpkin decorating, Halloween costumes, trick-or-treating and outdoor games. The Great Pumpkin Fest, located in and around the new Camp Snoopy, has you covered for all these things and more - think of it as a “pumpkin patch 2.0.”

Special Attractions

In addition to all your favorite Camp Snoopy rides, The Great Pumpkin Fest features three limited-time attractions. Charlie Brown’s Tractor Tour lets kids hop onto a miniature pedal powered tractor and enjoy the views. Lucy’s Mummy Pit is a sudsy and bubbly pyramid of good clean fun. Linus’ Pumpkin Patch and Bale Maze weaves you through a twisting path of hay bales and cornstalks, all while dodging dead ends as you make your way towards the Pumpkin Patch. Kids 12 and under can choose their own mini pumpkin from the Pumpkin Patch to decorate and take home (at no additional charge)!

All Fun and No Fear

The Great Pumpkin Fest is the perfect kid-friendly complement to its scary big brother, SCarowinds. Kids are welcome to wear their Halloween costumes here, and if you leave yours at home, Sally’s Craft Corner has you covered with masks that kids can decorate and wear. Franklin’s Game Corner is a mini-midway set up just for The Great Pumpkin Fest with special games like Haunted Hoops, Phantom Duck Pluck, Pumpkin Pitch and more. Winner every time! Last but not least, what’s Halloween without trick-or-treating? We offer a trick-or-treating experience for kids at 3:00 each day. 

Scary Good Entertainment

After all these activities, you'll want a break. We have four live shows to keep the fun going while you take a breather. Come sail the seven seas with Captain Charlie Brown and the crew of the Lost & Found with Charlie Brown's Pirate Adventure, located in the Camp Snoopy Theatre and showing at 11AM, 1:30PM, 3:30PM or show off your Halloween costume at Count Snooptacula's Costume Party at 12:30 and 2:30 PM.

Feeling hungry for some Fall food? Stop by Harmony Hall, where you can join a cast of teenage dead heads as they perform a retro rock revue for you and your ghoul friends in Haunted Homecoming. Don’t go running for your life when it’s done, because it’s showing back-to-back with It's The Great Pumpkin Picture Show, a screening of the family classic It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown on the big screen. It’s The Great Pumpkin Picture Show screens at 12:30PM, 1:30PM, 2:30PM and 3:30PM; back-to-back with Haunted Homecoming at 12PM, 1PM, 2PM, 3PM and 4PM.

 

 

All Shows run on Saturdays and Sundays from September 22 to October 28.

If you’re looking for a one-stop destination for every must-do autumn activity, The Great Pumpkin Fest is the place for you. The festival runs in Camp Snoopy every Saturday and Sunday from September 22 to October 28. Tickets can be purchased here. We can’t wait to see y’all!
