5th Annual Town of Carefree Enchanted Pumpkin Garden



The Enchanted Pumpkin Garden is a one-of-a-kind fall festival celebrating the magic of the Haloween season! The 2019 event takes place October 18-27, with the incredible artistry of Ray Villafane and Villafane Studios' carvers on display live each day with their carvings found throughout the four-acre Carefree Desert Gardens. On weekends, this annual event boasts magical Halloween activities for both kids and adults, plus culinary delights and autumnal refreshments including a beer garden, a harvest market and live music. 

Halloween invades the town of Carefree in the form of whimsical pumpkin carvings from master sculptor Ray Villafane and the Villafane Studios team for a fourth year.

Voted “Best in the Valley” fall event in 2015 and 2016 by Phoenix Magazine, visitors are invited to experience the many new mischievous pumpkin characters, artfully imagined and frolicking in their enchanted garden home. In addition to the playful pumpkins and holiday vignettes, Villafane and his team will carve 3-D pumpkin faces.
