Stone Wall Pumpkin Festival in Rochester Hills

Another great Michigan fall festival to get you in the seasonal spirit! Find a new love for pumpkins, Oct. 10-11, 2020, at the Rochester Hills Museum.

Ready for a little Halloween fun? The annual Stone Wall Pumpkin Festival at Rochester Hills Museum returns in 2020 with pumpkin carving and a beautifully-lit pumpkin display, Oct. 10-11, 2020.

With registration, which is $30/members and $35/non-members, families can score two pumpkins to carve while at the event (additional pumpkins can be purchased for just $5/each). Use the carving tools and patterns provided to create the craziest pumpkin that you can dream up!

Then, in the evening (7-9 p.m.), drive thru the museum’s grounds to see all of the pumpkin creations lined up on the stone walls on the grounds and a cool scarecrow display put on by local organizations.

For safety reasons, there will be no games or additional events at this year’s event. The tables where families carve only seat six and are sanitized between each use.

The Stone Wall Pumpkin Festival happens at the Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm, which is located at 1005 Van Hoosen Road in Rochester. Advance registration for a ticketed time slot is required. Time slots are as follows:

  • 9-11 a.m., noon-2 and 3-5 p.m. Saturday
  • 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Sunday and 2-4 p.m. Sunday
