Whether you stick close to home or make a day or weekend trip out of it, going to a pumpkin festival or visiting a glowing jack-o'-lantern display is a family-friendly way to get into the spirit of the season. New England is brimming with fall festivals, but kids are particularly enamored with events celebrating the humble pumpkin: the symbol of autumn and Halloween. Here's our short list of 2021 pumpkin festivals, displays, and events that are happening in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island beginning this month and going through October.

Pick a destination, then be inspired by our easy pumpkin carving ideas and go find your perfect jack-o'-lantern (or two) at these Boston pumpkin patches, Fairfield pumpkin patches, or Hartford pumpkin patches
