Great Pumpkin Nights

The biggest Halloween celebration for families in Central Massachusetts!

Great Pumpkin Nights - October 19-22, 26-29

For 13 years the EcoTarium has hosted "Great Pumpkin Fest." This year, the fun is going to be even bigger as we launch "Great Pumpkin Nights" - eight nights of Halloween at the museum! 

Join us for an all ages Halloween spectacular with more than 3,000 carved pumpkins lit up in stunning displays of dinosaurs, safari animals, and beautifully carved Jack O'Lanterns. 

Friendly Halloween costumes are encouraged! Bring a flashlight to light your way at night and be sure to dress for the weather. This event takes place rain or shine.​
