Live Professional Pumpkin Carving

There’s only one Fall festival in Michigan where you’ll see eight professional pumpkin carvers in action! We’re so excited to welcome Greg Butauski (world champion ice carver), Chad Hartson (featured on the Food Network’s Halloween Wars), and Maryse Swanson (winner of Foodtastic on Disney+) to this year’s Holland Fall Fest! They’ll be joined this year by returning pro carvers Jason Bartlett, Greg Demaline, Lauren Klapec, Jay Leahy, and Ryan Roth.

You can watch the professional pumpkin carvers at work on 8th Street in Downtown Holland on Friday, October 7 from 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm and on Saturday, October 8 from 12:00 pm – 7:00 pm. The carvers will also be at the Holland Farmers Market on Saturday, October 8 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm! All carvings will remain on display through Monday.

Pre-Carved Pumpkins Displays

Be sure to check out the professionally-carved custom pumpkins commissioned by our Downtown Holland shops and restaurants too! They will be on display throughout all of Downtown Holland on Friday, October 7 and Saturday, October 8, both on 8th Street and inside the shops and restaurants. Check them out as you’re strolling through Downtown Holland. You’ll want to have your camera ready!.
