Stone Wall Pumpkin Festival Returns

The Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm’s signature event — the Stone Wall Pumpkin Festival — returns on Saturday, October 9. The event runs from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. and from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. Admission price includes one pumpkin. The Museum provides stencils and carving tools, but guests are encouraged to bring their own carving tools from home.

Daytime activities include food, pumpkin bowling, live entertainment, crafts, a Rochester Hills Fire Truck, and more. Guests are invited to carve a pumpkin and place it on the stone walls surrounding the Museum property and return in the evening to see all the pumpkins lit up. Scarecrows made by local organizations will also be on display.

Evening lighting of the pumpkins runs from 7:00-9:00 p.m. and a financial donation in any amount is requested to support the Rochester Area Neighborhood House so we can all be good neighbors.

The Rochester Hills Museum is located at 1005 Van Hoosen Road, off Tienken Road between Rochester and Dequindre Roads. The cost is $5 for museum members and $10 for non-members (children under 2-years of age are free). No pre-registration, day of sales only.
