[ARCHIVED] Halloween in Winooski 2019 and Volunteer Opportunities


The City of Winooski and Downtown Winooski are preparing for another amazing Halloween in Winooski event! This will include music and family-friendly fun at the VSAC building and Downtown Trick-or-Treating (Sat. 10/26), the Festival of Pumpkins in Rotary Park (Fri. 10/25 & Sat. 10/26), and the Haunted Mill (10/25 & 10/26). Stay tuned for the full event announcement here at

As always, the City will be hosting a special pumpkin carving event at the Winooski Senior Center on Saturday, October 19th (9 AM – 5 PM) and Sunday, October 20th (9 AM until all pumpkins are carved). This event is free and open to all – stop by any time, carve as many pumpkins as you wish! All supplies will be provided – there is no need to sign up.

 We also have two vital volunteer opportunities available to continue making this event amazing:

  • Pumpkin Carving Event Support Volunteer

We need volunteers to support the Pumpkin Carving Event and its attendees. Volunteers will help carry pumpkins in and out of the Senior Center, carve the tops off, gut the pumpkins, and ensure a safe and fun event for all. Volunteer for as long as you are able for the entire event (Saturday, October 19th / 9 AM – 5 PM and Sunday, October 20th / 9 AM until all pumpkins are carved).

  • Festival of Pumpkins: Rotary Park Set-Up Crew

Be a part of making Rotary Park come alive! On Friday, October 25th help us load the jack o’ lanterns into Rotary Park, place candles in each jack o’ lantern, and light the candles. We will begin the park set up at 9:30 AM and will start lighting at dusk. 

To sign up for either of these important volunteer opportunities, please contact Olivia Miller, Volunteer Coordinator:  / 802 734 1836
