— Opening October 2019 —

Long Island’s most iconic, truly unique, family-friendly fall event, RISE of the Jack O’Lanterns, is returning in October 2019 to Old Westbury Gardens for the eighth year in a row! Come see 5,000 hand-carved illuminated jack o’lanterns creatively arranged along a scenic walking path and set to a musical score designed to bring out the fall spirit in visitors of all ages! This year, we’ve redesigned the entire event from the ground up in ways that will wow both RISE newbies and returning RISE fans!

Come see the only event in the country that features 5,000 jack o'lanterns all hand-carved by artists using actual real pumpkins!  This year, visitors will get up close and personal with our jack o'lanterns like never before.  All of our jacks will be within feet of the path and will be sprouting up from the ground in a whole new way.  Our newly illuminated walking path will be lit in vibrant colors so visitors feel truly immersed in a beautifully enchanted night garden experience.  We're also adding more intricately carved art pumpkins, sculpted pumpkins, and animated pumpkins than ever before! 

Don't miss all of the big new things happening at Long Island's #1 fall event!  Advanced tickets are required and must be purchased on-line at

It's important to purchase tickets early because this event sells out often weeks ahead of time.
