New Pumpkin Paths, Thousands of Pumpkins, and Dozens of Crafters announced. In 2022, Silver Dollar City‘s acclaimed Harvest Festival will return brighter than ever, with over 15,000 pumpkins, larger-than-life sculptures, and the new Foggy Hollow lighted pathway. The half-million-dollar “pumpkin” expansion adds to the Harvest Festival featuring Crafts and Pumpkins In The City, which runs September 21-October 29, 2022, as part of Silver Dollar City’s Biggest Entertainment Year Ever.
Foggy Hollow is a magical canopy of lovely lighting accentuated by a foggy glow. Guests will be immersed in dramatic cascading lights all around and above as they enter the winding Foggy Hollow pathway. Music will enhance the experience. Pumpkin sculptures such as a 14-foot ‘Lucky’ Dog (the Dalmatian mascot of the Fireman’s Landing kids’ area), colorful, friendly bats with 5-foot wingspans perched atop lighted areas, a massive cat, pumpkin craftspeople (patterned after the City’s own craftspeople), and an icon scarecrow more than two-stories tall can be found throughout “The City.”
At Wilson’s Farm, the Garden of Giants returns with real half-ton pumpkins set along new expanded paths. Throughout the park, themed decorations and vibrant lighting adorn pathways. While thousands of hand-carved pumpkins illuminate the park, rollercoasters speed through the evening sky, traversing the Ozark Mountains’ hills and hollows with record-breaking thrills, drops, loops, and views. The park has 40 rides and attractions, the majority of which have scenic views of pumpkin illumination. The night comes alive for the kids with a blacklight, glow-in-the-dark dance party where they can dance alongside life-size pumpkin pals.
During the day, crafters demonstrate their skills, while live music is performed on outdoor stages. Legendary chuckwagon chefs and storytellers of western adventures bring cowboy lore to life. The Chuckwagon Cook Off returns to Cowboy Camp this year, with each chef competing by preparing a traditional cowboy dish that will be judged by the audience. Guests vote for the Chuckwagon King with whoops and hollers.
Buck Taylor, a famed watercolor artist known from his youth on the TV series ‘Gunsmoke’ and now seen in the series ‘Yellowstone,’ returns this season. There are dozens more demonstrating crafters in the streets and courtyards, as well as several world-renowned pumpkin carvers. Some of the more intricate creations can be found at the Makers’ Market, including handcrafted jewelry, quilts, applique, and woven rugs.
