PUMPKIN CARVER INFORMATION

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST in being an Amazing Pumpkin Carver!

Since safety is our first concern – for our carvers, our visitors and our staff – this year’s event will be held as a beautifully illuminated drive-thru once again this year. Visitors will view your awesome creations from the safety and comfort of their cars.

Important information:

  • Carving day is Wednesday, October 6, 2021.
  • Each carver will be provided with a giant pumpkin positioned on haybales, a 10×10 tent, and electricity as in previous years. Carvers may arrive at 9:30am and may come and go all day.
    • Tent areas must be cleaned up by 6pm.
    • Last minute tweaking to adjust for evening lighting must be completed by 6:45pm since cars will begin entering at 7pm.
  • Each carver or carving team will receive a $150 honorarium.
  • Carvers must be at least 12 years of age.  Any carver between the ages of 12 and 18 must be on a team with a parent or guardian. Due to social distancing, the maximum team size is two carvers. No other visitors will be permitted on-site during carving day.
  • Masks will be required when walking outside of your tent. If you carve as a team, it is your responsibility to select a partner from your social safety circle or be sure to quarantine prior to working together in close proximity.
  • The Carve will be open to the public during evening hours and viewed from 10 feet away; so ILLUMINATION and lighting is more important than ever!

Once your application has been reviewed, you will receive an email letting you know if you have been accepted.  Please contact us at hello@hvartscouncil.org or 609-281-5887, with any questions.
