Carefrees Enchanted Pumpkin Garden

8 Sundial Circle
Carefree, AZ 85377


Join the Town of Carefree for our 2nd year of pumpkin enchantment! Stroll the 3-acre exhibit in the Carefree Desert Gardens every day and discover whimsical pumpkin characters keeping time with the Carefree Sundial. We encourage you to return as the exhibits will change as new pumpkins are carved. Spot "Ray's 10 Best" Pickled Sculpted Pumpkins in their Saguaro Cactus displays that resemble real botanical specimens.

The weekdays are exciting, but the weekends invite the scarecrows and the pumpkin activities to reach their peak and include LIVE pumpkin carving featuring world renowned artist Ray Villafane! The Enchanted Pumpkin Garden is open daily from 10:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. at the Carefree Desert Gardens and Sanderson Lincoln Pavilion.
