Halloween at Dynamic Earth

Get Your Spook On!

Experience Halloween like never before at Dynamic Earth this October!

In what is quickly becoming a Fall favourite among visitors and residents alike, Halloween at Dynamic Earth is not to be missed! 

Come experience the award winning  Pumpkinferno™, Zombie Tunnel of Terror, Dr. Dread and so much more!


Pumpkinferno™is an enchanting outdoor award-winning exhibit created by Upper Canada Village, featuring thousands of hand-carved pumpkins set against a glowing Sudbury backdrop on the grounds of Dynamic Earth, Home of the Big Nickel! 

Pumpkinferno™ will put you in a trance with each of the unique 18 sets made entirely of individual fibre pumpkins in a spellbinding display of artistry and imagination.

New in 2015! Pumpkinfero has been expanded to include a celebration of Sudbury’s mining heritage and an interactive word wall.

Dress warmly and enjoy a 30-45 minute stroll on our outdoor trails and new fire pit for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows – as well as fingers and toes ☺.

Good fun for all ages!
