Stone Mountain Park’s annual Pumpkin Festival has become a family favorite with kids and parents alike!
Take in all of the splendor that autumn provides while you enjoy park attractions, fun-filled games, live shows, and more! New for 2018, a family-friendly nighttime fall event with thousands of carved jack-o-lanterns lighting up each night!
During the daytime check out the Carnival in expo with prizes to delight your little ones. Let the autumn breeze blow across you as you listen to classic and contemporary tales from the one and only Mother Goose. Join Spookley the Square Pumpkin and lift his friends into the air for a Dance-A-Long Party Parade that dances through Crossroads, and then meet him at Spookley’s Pumpkin Patch Meet & Greet. Beat the clock with a tasty treat at the Pie Eating Contest and much more! Then stick around for our NEW family-friendly nighttime fall event. The not-so-spooky festivities include thousands of carved jack-o-lanterns, massive pumpkin displays, costumed characters, glow-in-the-dark mini golf, flashlight tours of Dinosaur Explore, a dance party and much, much more!
Plus, enjoy all of your favorite Stone Mountain Park attractions during Pumpkin Festival. Trek through the treetops on SkyHike®, one of the nation’s largest adventure ropes courses, or soar to the top of the mountain on Summit Skyride and take in the beautiful fall views from more than 825 feet above the ground.
Access to the Pumpkin Festival is included with a daily All-Attractions Pass or annual Mountain Membership! Tickets go on sale this fall.
