Enter a Carving Team

The Pumpkin Palooza carving competition is open to local and regional businesses, artists and groups that want to test their pumpkin carving skills and—more importantly—raise money for the arts in Martinsville-Henry County.

Each team works together on a single entry that may incorporate multiple pumpkins and will be judged against the entries of other teams.

Entry Fee

The team entry fee is the price of one event ticket per team member. Teams may consist of as many or as few members as desired. Example: 4 team members @ $25 per ticket = $100
