Pumpkin Festival Returns to the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess

Pumpkin Fest is back by popular demand at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, this year with a new name to avoid any guest confusion. The festival is a community event, and does not require an overnight stay.

Guests can enjoy many of their favorite fall themed attractions from last year, including a pumpkin patch, a hay maze, characters, and fall food––with new attractions this year.

Fireworks will light the sky above the Princess at 8 p.m. nightly. Rides at Jack O’Lantern Lane include the fun slide, black widow spider, yo-yo swings, happy swings, and dizzy dragons.
