  • What is the festival?


    Founded in 2010, the Pumpkin Carving Festival is a unique pumpkin carving family and corporate event to help kick off the fall season. Each year, two charities are selected as the beneficiaries for the festival. The beneficiaries of the 2013 festival will be Keiki O Ka Aina Family Learning Centers and USO Hawaii.

    More than 1,100 guests attended the first year Family Day event and Corporate Carving Competition that was held at the Blaisdell Center in 2010. "One of the purposes for this community event was to create a new tradition for families leading into Halloween and Thanksgiving", says Founder Billie Gabriel. "Carving pumpkins is not something many Hawaii families get to do together with other families, and we wanted to give them an opportunity to fellowship in a fun and festive atmosphere." In addition to the Family Day event, the Corporate Team Competition creates great camaraderie for companies in this friendly carving competition. The Executive CarveDown pits corporate executives against each other in their own carving competition. Glenn Muranaka, President of Meadow Gold Dairies, was the winner of the 2011 Executive CarveDown.
