The Pumpkin House: How this small town home became a national attraction

What once began with only 5 carved pumpkins in 1978 has now grown into a one-of-a-kind event complete with over 3,000 glowing jack-o’-lanterns. The Pumpkin House in Kenova has become a nationwide sensation and welcomes more than 30,000 visitors each season!

Each year, more and more guests flock to The Pumpkin House to see all of the uniquely hand-carved creations that line every inch of this Victorian-style home. Catch this spectacular display for yourself from October 27-November 2, 2023. Attend the Ceredo-Kenova AutumnFest to find the Pumpkin House at the center of the festivities. Celebrate the Halloween season with a parade, arts and craft fair, food trucks, live music, pageants, car show, face painting, petting zoo and the list goes on!
