Celebrating over 50 Years of Fall Family Fun, Darien’s Tokeneke School Pumpkin Carnival Returns Saturday, October 14th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Rain Date: Sunday, October 15th
For over 50 years, the Tokeneke Pumpkin Carnival at Tokeneke School in Darien has been a fall-favorite activity for Fairfield County families, offering something spooky and fun for children both big and small. The 2017 Tokeneke Pumpkin Carnival will be a celebration of traditions like old-fashioned fair games and new experiences, including all-new rides and food options.
Originally called “Big Pumpkin”, the Tokeneke Pumpkin Carnival is one of Darien’s most cherished traditions. Every October for the past five decades, the Pumpkin Carnival has transformed the Tokeneke Elementary School, located on Old Farm Road in Darien, into a Halloween-themed haunted house and amusement park with delicious food, numerous games plus a wide variety of mechanical rides.
This year, the 2017 Pumpkin Carnival is scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 14th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The rain date for the event will be on the following day (October 15th).
There will be an early 9:30 AM opening time for the Tokeneke Pumpkin Carnival rides on October 14th for children in Darien with special needs. Please come and enjoy the fun!
VERY IMPORTANT - Parking Lot Closed on Friday
The Tokeneke parking lot will be closed on Friday, 10/4 for the carnival. We strongly suggest that your children ride school buses to and from school that day. If you must drop off and pick up, please drop off at 8:30am and pick up at 2:30pm at the front circle of the school. Teachers will be aware that children will be coming into the classroom at 8:35am.
