Night of 1,000 Pumpkins, Folsom CA


Night of 1,000 Pumpkins is a yearly event where we attempt to light 1,000 jack-o-lanterns in Historic Sutter Street, California. Thousands of residents and visitors of Folsom visit this yearly event which consists of trick-or-treating, outdoor movies, and of course, pumpkins! Kids are encouraged to come in costume and enjoy the festivities. Jack-o-lanterns are provided by attendees of the event - so if you visit, please bring a few carved pumpkins!

The event is always Friday before Halloween.
This year's event will be Friday, October 25, 2013.

We are currently seeking sponsors!
If you would like to donate an item for the raffle or pledge to donate "per pumpkin" for the school pumpkin drive, please email John Gladding at

"Night" 2013: October 25, 2013

Pumpkin raffle:  

All carved pumpins will be entered in to the pumpkin raffle, where we will be giving away great prizes from local merchants.

You do not need to be present to win! The raffle will take place after the event and the winners can pick up prizes after the event.


"It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" will play during the early part of the event, and a break at around 7:00 for the costume parade. Afterwards, a full-feature movie will play in the amphitheater.

This year's movie will be Goonies (PG, 1985), a pirate-themed action-fantasy. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy the show!

Costume Parade:  

No Halloween event is complete without ghosts and goblins!! Young and old are encouraged to get their costumes on for Night of 1,000 Pumpkins.

There's a costume contest for the best outfits of the evening, all ages are encouraged!

Group Entries:  

Entering your jack-o-lantern is as easy as dropping off to your local elementary school! Participating schools and groups will give you a raffle ticket, and we'll bring the pumpkins to Sutter Street. At 9pm, you can even get your pumpkin back if you want it!

Schools and organizations interested in participating can email John Gladding at if you'd like to lead a drive for your organization.
