Pumpkin Glow Trail In Jersey

Updated: Oct 17, 2019

Wagner Farm Arboretum is home to one of New Jersey's few glow trails which they call "Bight Nites". Wagner Farm Arboretum is 92 Acres of an old dairy farm that was purchased by Warren Township back in 2001 with the purpose to keep it as preserved open space. In 2004 The Wagner Farm Arboretum Foundation, Inc. (WFAF) was organized and incorporated. The committee in charge of running the Arboretum has created an amazing fundraiser that helps to embrace the magical season of fall.

The glowing pumpkin trial is returning this year for its 8th year and we're so excited! Right now volunteers are busy carving new pumpkins touching up old displays and creating new ones. There really are no words to capture the magic that this event creates. You get to meander through trails and gardens loaded with intricately carved jack-o-lantern and sculptures. There are hundreds of hand-carved pumpkins stacked and placed to create spectacular displays.

If you can brave it you can take a detour toward the barn of fear! Don't worry if a haunted house is not your thing, because, new this year is the L'il Pumpkin Patch where your little tot can pick a l'il pumpkin and play a game.

Once you've completed the glowing trail you can stop by the food pavilion and enjoy amazing food from one of the food truck line ups! You can also visit the store where you can purchase locally hand-crafted honey, soaps candles, wooden toys, and baked goods.
