Guests will get to vote for the People’s Pumpkin and enjoy festive food and beverages while watching the competition unfold. This exciting event is part of Archtober, New York City’s month-long celebration of design and architecture.
Pumpkitecture! will take place at the Center For Architecture on October 26th. The carving will last from 6:15p.m. to 7:30p.m. The event ends at 8:00p.m. Tickets are $15 for the general public, but if you are an Untapped Cities Insider, you can attend this event for free courtesy of our partner, Archtober.
