Join us Oct. 29 for the PumpkinMania Festival!

Transylvania University’s PumpkinMania returns to downtown Lexington with a family-friendly pumpkin carving event Sunday, Oct. 29, and a jack-o’-lantern display each night from Oct. 29‑Nov. 2.

The return of PumpkinMania is made possible this year by the generous support of our sponsors.

The Transylvania and Lexington communities are invited to carve pumpkins Oct. 29 from 11 a.m.‑4 p.m. All pumpkins and carving supplies will be provided.


The carving will be in front of Transylvania’s Old Morrison administration building off Third Street.


Parking will be available in the Transylvania lots and on streets surrounding campus. Please read all signs and abide by parking limitations posted by the city.

The PumpkinMania display will be lit for five nights — rain or shine — Oct. 29‑Nov 2.

On Friday, Nov. 3, the pumpkins will be collected by local farmers and used to feed farm animals — meeting our university’s sustainability goals.
