The Auburn University American Institute of Architecture Students, or AIAS, invites all students, faculty and community members to the courtyard of Dudley Hall to carve pumpkins at the 33rd Annual Pumpkin Carve Oct. 29, 2021.

This event will light up the Dudley Hall courtyard with the glow of almost 200 pumpkins. Along with carving, attendees are invited to participate in a silent auction to win napkin sketches created by College of Architecture, Design and Construction, or CADC, faculty as well as purchase this year’s Pumpkin Carve t-shirts and stickers. Refreshments will include snacks, treats, and beverages from various CADC organizations as well as lunch provided by the CADC Schools Council and hamburgers, and hot dogs provided by the AIAS Dog Days coordinators for dinner.

The event will begin at 9 a.m., pumpkin carving will end at 6 p.m. and then the pumpkins will be illuminated. Judges, who include community members and CADS faculty, will select the best pumpkins and award prizes donated from local businesses. The winning pumpkins will be auctioned to benefit the AIAS. Other carved pumpkins will be available for purchase for a minimum donation of $5 with those proceeds also benefiting the AIAS.

The Dudley Hall courtyard is located between Dudley Hall and Dudley Commons, which is adjacent to the Graves Amphitheater on the Auburn University campus. After 5 p.m., visitors can park in the South Quad Parking Deck on Lem Morrison Drive and Duncan Drive.

More information about this year’s Pumpkin Carve event can be found on the Pumpkin Carve website.
