TechShop Pumpkin Carving Party and Contest

What better way to get into the Halloween spirit than

with a Pumpkin Carving Party and Contest!

Pumpkin carving is more fun the more people you share it with and everyone has their own techniques for creating the best looking pumpkin. Now is the time to put those skills to the test in our pumpkin carving competition for high stakes - First and Second place winners will receive a free month of membership to TechShop and Third place takes home a free class of their choice

The contest to win memberships and classes is open to ages 12 and up (due to TechShop policies and restrictions). We will also have a contest for our younger makers if they wish to participate for ages 5 and up with prizes!

Contest Rules:

  • The contest starts at 1:00pm and ends at 6:00pm SHARP!
  • Everyone must bring their own pumpkin - You are welcome to bring your own tools as well but TechShop will have a variety of tools on hand for pumpkin carving.
  • Pumpkin must be carved from start to finish on-site - No pre-carving!
  • No commercially made patterns - it has to be all you!
  • No artificial pumpkins or artificial parts! Everything has to be 100% pumpkin. (toothpicks for structural support are okay though)


Can I just come carve a pumpkin for fun without being judged by my pumpkin carving skills? Totally! We just want everybody to have a good time and Halloween is as good a time as any to party. We'll have refreshments and beverages available and if you feel so inspired, feel free to bring your favorite Halloween treat!

Donations at the door are appreciated to help keep our events program running!

Please Note: We encourage everyone to attend and this is a children friendly event (Ages 5 and up) but normal young maker policies still apply - everyone under the age of 18 MUST be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all times while on TechShop premises. No exceptions.
