Pumpkinferno at Fort Henry

Fort Henry will be transformed into the enchanted wonderland that is Pumpkinferno. Guests of all ages will tour the spectacular outdoor experience of glowing pumpkins inside the walls of this historic site.

The Story Behind the Pumpkins
The carved pumpkins you will see at Pumpkinferno are realistic, artificial pumpkins, whose forms have been shaped from molds of real pumpkins. The pumpkins have been designed and carved by a talented group of young artists from the Eastern Ontario region. These designers and carvers were selected based on their penchant for design, whether in their field of study or as a personal hobby. They embark on this monumental project every spring, designing, carving, and constructing the amazing array of pumpkin-carved installations you will discover on your tour. Each spring through summer, a group of new and returning designer/carvers create all that you will see that is new and vibrant, added to our collection of amazing exhibits at Pumpkinferno!
