Spooner Jack O' Lantern Festival

Spooner celebrates fall with a full day and evening of fun at the annual Jack O’ Lantern Festival. Enjoy this fun family festival with tons of kids’ games, a pumpkin roll down Siegner Hill, pumpkin painting, inflatable bounce houses and much more. There’s also a Pumpkin Recipe Contest and a Pumpkin Carving Contest.

The 5K Zombie Fun Run takes place in the evening through Spooner’s “haunted woods” and promises adventure.

Spooner is easy to get to via U.S. 53, U.S. 63, or Highway 70, about halfway between Eau Claire/Chippewa Falls and Superior. There’s a reason they call Spooner the “Crossroads of the North”!
