SCarowinds and The Great Pumpkin Fest kick off this weekend

Kick off the fall season this weekend at Carowinds! With The Great Pumpkin Fest filled with family-friendly activities and SCarowinds geared toward children ages 13 and above, there's some seasonally themed fun for everyone!

Saturdays and Sundays, September 16 to October 29

Attention, ghosts and ghouls of all ages! Wear your favorite costume, go trick-or-treating and enjoy all things fall at Carowinds’ Great Pumpkin Fest, open on Saturdays and Sundays from September 16 through October 9. All new for 2023 is their Tricks and Treats Parade, a roving Halloween celebration with spectacularly decorated floats and fanciful characters.

Silly and cooky with just a speck of spooky, The Great Pumpkin Fest within Camp Snoopy offers family-friendly Halloween activities and entertainment throughout the park. Around every hay bale, you’ll find lively music to dance to, or you can grab a comfy seat to kick back and take it all in. Trick-or-treating, games, play zones, a costume contest, dance parties, and selfies with the PEANUTS Gang ensure everyone has a blast. Learn more.

Select Nights, September 15 - October 29, 2023

SCarowinds, the Carolinas’ premier Halloween event, is back with a vengeance. Among this year’s new attractions is the Procession of Nightmares parade, where all of your deepest, darkest dreams have come to life on the park’s midways.

You’ll sleep with the lights on after experiencing this new season of SCarowinds with nothing but pure fear straddling the North Carolina-South Carolina state line. Every corner has a fresh coat of fright with horrifying haunted mazes, spine-tingling scare zones, and live entertainment.

Hordes of hungry zombies and blood-thirsty vampires eagerly wait to make you their next meal. Wicked, desperate screams ring throughout the park. Add Carowinds’ world-class thrill rides ravaging through the dark of night, and you’ve got the perfect storm for Halloween fun. Learn more.

We recommend all guests be 13 years or older due to the nature of the event.
