PUMPKIN EXHIBITION | A world of bizarre pumpkin arrangements and fun for the whole family

14. - 30. 10. 2022

Autumn is the most colorful time of the year and nature plays with a range of colors that no painter can mix. We will bring you closer to this colorful palette at the popular pumpkin exhibition.
The pumpkin has slowly made its way into the consciousness of people all over the world and has not only become an integral part of the menu but also serves as an autumn decoration. Let your imagination play out the story with the mysterious pumpkin arrangements prepared for you by Czech Horticultural Academy Mělník and let yourself be carried away by the color palettes of autumn.

This time the pumpkin arrangements will be inspired by Celtic culture and the festival of Samhain, which gave rise to Halloween.

Enjoy colorful autumn full of fun, events, and creative making for young and old.


The exhibition including the accompanying program will take place in the Upper Garden and Forest exhibition (MAP of the premises)


Exhibition of pumpkin arrangements 14.-31. 10.

Pumpkin games 22-23 October (weekend), 10.00-16.00

Play around with pumpkins and let your imagination run wild. Everyone can get involved. All that matters is skill and courage.

A variety of natural items will be available, and pumpkins will be available for a small fee. There will be melt guns on site to attach materials.
You can also bring your own unusual fruits or tools that you might find useful in your creation. The resulting creations can be taken home with you.



Halloween 30.10. (Sunday),13.00-19.00

Pumpkin hollowing at the time of All Souls' Day is an old Celtic tradition. Not only that, but also sitting around the fireplace, roasting sausages, a musical program, and an evening parade through the garden await you on the penultimate day of October. The afternoon will be enriched by musical performances and young and old alike can try their hand at various Celtic crafts.

There will be competitions and tricky tasks for children until dark. Scary masks are welcome. We will compete for the best one!

The program will conclude at 6 pm with the traditional parade through the darkened garden with lights and Halloween lanterns.



Again this year,­­­ the exhibition will present and display a gigantic pumpkin grown for us by Mr. Jan Staněk from Horní Bludovice. Follow the story of Adela, who hasn't yet had her dinner on her Facebook.
