About the Pumpkins: They are native pumpkins, grown by SIW vegetables of Chadds Ford. They weigh between 150 and 400 pounds. Most of them are of the variety “Prize-Winner,” a drought resistant pumpkin that tends to be bright orange. There are also a few “Atlantic Giants” which tend to be paler and sometimes a less regular shape.

The Great Pumpkin Carve Event is co-sponsored by the Historical Society & Concordville- Chadds Ford Rotary.


This annual tradition is a three day event in October with over 60 local artists carve huge pumpkins. The pumpkins will be lit after the carving is completed and then displayed all three nights-Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Treat yourself to great food provided by Concordville-Chadds Ford Rotary, live music, hayrides, haunted trail, and a chance to win a raffle item.


Location: on the grounds of the Chadds Ford Historical Society 1736 North Creek Rd in Chadds Ford.
