Those with disabilities will find parking near the Amphitheater Box Office, with a valid parking permit. Drop-off will also be available near the entrance.
Please note: There are a couple of steep slopes on the trail, which is about 1/3 mile long. It's really up to the customer and their comfort level with various grade levels. However, the trail is compacted with crushed limestone which allows for easier mobility and trail docents are available if you have questions. We have guests who utilize wheelchairs each year without issue.
What happens if it rains or in the event of severe weather?
The show goes on, rain or shine. In the event that the show is delayed or postponed due to inclement weather, the tickets you’re issued for that particular night will be honored on another day.
What happens if I come hungry?
There will be plenty to eat. Bring a friend and have them keep your place in line, or trade off. Full concessions will be available each night of the show.
I’m looking to avoid the crowds. When is the best time to come?
We have timed ticketing every day of the show, to minimize lines and overcrowding. You will have a shorter wait the later time slots. Please understand your ticket time is when the line for that time slot will enter the amphitheater. The wait from the beginning of the time slot to the end of the time slot is approximately an hour. If you are the last person in the 7:15 line, you will enter the amphitheater no later than 8:15. It is approximately a 45 minute wait from the entrance to the amphitheater to the entrance to the trail.
Anything else I need to know?
Yes, the show is brought to you by Passion for Pumpkins, an organization that got its start in Oxford, Massachusetts in 1988. P4P currently operates two other shows, located in Providence, Rhode Island and Minneapolis, MN.
Where can I park?
Parking is limited in the Amphitheater Parking Lot and in the surrounding park area.
I’m from out of town. Are there any hotels nearby?
Our Hotel Sponsor is Hampton by Hilton Louisville Northeast, where you will receive a special rate. There are also plenty of hotels in nearby downtown Louisville, which is less than 15 minutes away. For more information, visit www.gotolouisville.com
Is camping or RV camping permitted?
No. Our public parks are not designed for overnight camping. There are nearby camp sites located in the area.

What is timed ticketing?
We now have timed ticketing every night of the show. Guests can choose from various time slots to view the show. It is recommended you purchase your tickets in advance as time slots will sell out.
If I come with a timed ticketing, will I still wait in line?
Can you sell out of tickets?
Yes, only a limited number of tickets are sold during designated time periods each day to prevent overcrowding.
What if I want to purchase tickets for my church, business, or civic organization? Do you offer group rates?
Yes, indeed! For groups of 20 or more, we offer tickets for $12 for Sunday-Thursday
