Pumpkin Tricks & Pumpkin Treats
Pumpkinferno returns in 2024!
Pumpkinferno has returned to Kingston to create another spectacularly spooky pumpkin wonderland to explore. Guests of all ages are welcome to tour the spectacular Fall-themed experience of glowing pumpkin art and sculptures inside the historic Kingston Pen.
The pumpkins have been designed and carved by a talented group of young artists from the Eastern Ontario region. Every spring a new batch of artists begin, designing, carving, and constructing the amazing array of pumpkin-carved installations you will discover on your tour. The pieces are created with realistic, artificial pumpkins, whose forms have been shaped from molds of real pumpkins.
A full month of pumpkin fun will run from September 29th until October 31st.
Don’t miss this limited-time opportunity to explore one of Kingston’s most iconic landmarks in a whole new light at 560 King Street West.
