Great Pumpkin Carve @ Chadds Ford Historical Society
Oct 20 @ 4:00 PM – 9:00 PM

The Chadds Ford Historical Society hosts the 43rd Annual Great Pumpkin Carve on October 18-20, 2018. The Great Pumpkin Carve is the quintessential Brandywine Valley experience, and is a great way to get in the Halloween spirit.

The Great Pumpkin Carve was started by artists Andrew Wyeth, Jamie Wyeth and Jimmy Lynch in the 1970s to decorate the Chadds Ford Inn for Halloween. The event has grown each year, and is now an autumn tradition for thousands of people. This family-friendly festival features 70 local artists competing by carving huge pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns on Thursday night. The pumpkins, which may weigh as much as 400 pounds, will be lit and displayed at the end of the carving on Thursday, and illuminated again on Friday and Saturday nights. Pumpkins are judged and winners declared in several categories: Best Overall, Most Halloween, Best Carving, Most Original and Best Use of Pumpkin.

In addition to the amazing pumpkins, the Great Pumpkin Carve offers entertainment for adults and children alike including live music, raffle prizes, hayrides, pumpkin painting and other fun activities. This year we are enlarging the pumpkin patch to provide more room and easier viewing of the pumpkins, adding more admissions lines to reduce waiting time, bringing back and expanding the Haunted Trail and featuring local wine, beer and cider vendors in addition to great local food.

The Great Pumpkin Carve is held on the grounds of the Chadds Ford Historical Society, 1736 N. Creek Road, Chadds Ford, PA 19317. Admission is $15 for adults; $5 for children; free for children 6 and under. CFHS members are free with membership card. All ticketing is at the gate. Free parking is available at the event. The Great Pumpkin Carve begins at 4 pm and ends at 9 pm on Thursday and Friday, September 18 and 19, with extended hours on Saturday, September 20, from 3 pm to 9 pm. Registration is required to enter both the pumpkin carving competition and the Scarecrow Display & Competition.

Visit www.greatpumpkincarve.com for additional information, and apply to compete in the carving or scarecrow competitions.

About: The Chadds Ford Historical Society is a non-profit organization based out of Chadds Ford Pennsylvania. We operate three historic buildings, the John Chads House, the Barns-Britons House, and The Chads Springhouse as well as the Barn Visitors Center. Proceeds from our events help support the Society’s educational programs, historic preservation efforts and our ongoing research projects on the history of the Chadds Ford area.

Dine Around West Chester
Oct 23 all-day

The Hickman Friends Senior Community of West Chester is excited to host the first Dine Around West Chester event on Tuesday, October 23, 2018. For that one day, Barnabys West Chester, The Mediterranean Restaurant, Rams Head Bar & Grill, Side Bar & Restaurant, and Spence Cafe will donate 25% of their food sales to The Hickman.

“We just need people to not prepare lunch or dinner on October 23rd, but instead make plans with family, friends and colleagues to eat at one of the participating restaurants,” says Charles “Ebbie” Alfree III, Advancement Director of The Hickman. “This is going to be a fun event that will highlight the exceptional restaurants in the Borough of West Chester, while raising awareness and funds for The Hickman.”

Funds raised through Dine Around West Chester will support The Hickman’s Resident Assistance Fund. The Fund provides assistance to residents who have depleted their financial resources, allowing them to remain in their home with their friends and The Hickman’s caring staff. For 127 years, no resident has had to leave The Hickman due to a financial situation.

“Restaurant guests will feel good knowing they are helping the senior population in the borough as they enjoy a scrumptious meal,” comments Mr. Alfree. “In addition, guests will have the opportunity to win wonderful prizes that night, including gift cards to the participating restaurants and a basket of cheer. It will be free to enter the contests, but donations are appreciated.”
