A Hoyt Farm Halloweekend

Hoyt Farm Halloweekend

Approximately 1500 Residents Enjoy Spooktacular Entertainment, Extravagant Costumes and a Haunting Time at the 17th Annual Hoyt Farm Halloweekend Festival

Hoyt Farm Nature Preserve hosted its 17th Annual Halloweekend on Saturday, October 15th, and Sunday, October 16th, 2022. The popular annual event traditionally sells out without much advertising. This year was no different, with roughly 1500 residents, between both days, participating in the festival weekend. Families enjoyed touring the festive preserve playing games, winning prizes, engaging in the entertainment and Fall fare, and enjoying the food. 

 

“Each year, I take my grandkids to this event and each year I’m more and more impressed with the attention to detail, TLC and thought that goes into delivering such a memorable experience for the community. I’d like to thank and acknowledge Jeff Gumin, our Director of Hoyt Farm Nature Preserve, Sheryl, Kate, Dominick, Kellie and the entire Hoyt Farm team… they really knocked it out of the park!” - Supervisor Ed Wehrheim

 

Each year, the team at Hoyt Farm Nature Preserve plan an elaborate and memorable Halloween festival for Smithtown families to enjoy. They try to create an atmosphere of good old-fashioned Fall fun mixed with kid-friendly Halloween enjoyment. They devote countless hours to orchestrating the whole weekend of fun which includes hay rides, pumpkin picking and decorating, spooky fun games, face painting, crafts, scavenger hunts and an unforgettable haunted house. The staff joins in the fun, dressed in unforgettable costumes to greet kids and parents who are dressed in Halloween costumes as well. The team at Hoyt Farm believes that a successful festival is one in which adults become kids and children become superheroes, and mythical beings inside a magical and unforgettable atmosphere. 

 

“This is an event that we put our hearts and souls into at Hoyt Farm. We try to make everything from scratch to spark that nostalgic country festival feel. It is an extremely popular event and each year it provides smiles to about 1500 Smithtown residents. We already started planning for next year!“ - Jeff Gumin (Director of Hoyt Farm Nature Preserve) and the Hoyt Farm staff

 

The Annual Hoyt Farm Halloweekend is for Smithtown residents only. The event includes a variety of seasonal games, crafts and entertainment.
