Thank you to everyone who turned out for the 2016 Pumpkin Preview Party.

The weather was perfect, the music was fun, the food was delicious and, most importantly, the pumpkins were amazing. Missed the party this year? Don’t worry. It will come around again next year. Just be sure you don’t miss this year’s aMAZing Pumpkins, on view until October 16. Plan your visit to the aMAZing Pumpkin Carve.

We’re havin’ a party! And everyone is invited!

Get your tickets now! Deadline: Monday, October 3.

Party??! That means good food, drink, music and FUN, right?

So, grab your friends and neighbors and let’s gather at the Farm for a stompin’ good time! We’re calling it a Pumpkin Preview Party because you’ll be among the first to see this year’s crop of aMAZing Pumpkins. You’ll even get to watch the artful carvers of the 2016 Pumpkin Carve put the finishing touches on their creations under the evening’s spooky light.

FOOD AND DRINK: Barbecue, beer, wine, and cider. And did we mention homemade ice cream?

MUSIC: Isn’t that what truly makes a party? So we’re bringing in local bluegrass favorites, The Bluewave Ramblers. Here they are a few years ago at WXPN’s World Cafe Live.


SETTING: The grounds of Howell Farm’s Corn Maze in the heart of the Hopewell Valley countryside, as an October evening falls across the pumpkin patch. (Yeah, it REALLY is that beautiful and picturesque.)

THE CROWD: The best around! You and your friends and neighbors from throughout Mercer, Hunterdon and Bucks Counties (or wherever else fun people hail from!)

MORE SURPRISES? Of course! We’re the Hopewell Valley Arts Council! We’ve always got more fun up our sleeve to delight you!

APC-logo-224x300 So, get your tickets now! Last year the party was a SELL-OUT and one of those perfect, fun nights everyone still talks about.  You don’t want to miss this good time!
