Pumpkin Carving Contest

Local chefs and designers square off and put their pumpkin-carving prowess to the test during Fest-of-Ale. The participants have 25 minutes to carve an award-winning masterpiece out of a giant pumpkin, and audience applause declares the winner. May the most ghoulish gourd win!

  • Chef Ed Harris, Chef Life Consulting & Food Network Chopped Seasoned Four Winner
  • James Hurley. James Hurley Designs

Following the competition, the carved pumpkins are sold in a silent auction benefiting the Garden. Also, don't miss the wacky Scarecrows in the Garden!
