The MSD Campus will transform in to a spooktacular place on Sunday, October 8, from 11am to 2pm for this year's Fall Harvest Festival & Halloween Carnival! You will want to bring your friends, family and neighbors to this fun, all-family cornerstone event open to all friends of the MSD community. Halloween costumes are welcomed encouraged for everyone!

The festival is for all ages and entrance to the festival is just $10 per child ($15 after October 2) and adults are free! With your $10 entrance you will enjoy fun arts & crafts, temporary tattoos,  Pinatas (one for each age group), two magic performances by Max Davidson (a MSD Alum now attending East High School) http://www.maxandrewmagic.com/, dancing & Karake with our DJ, a photo booth, and lots of fun with your friends!


We sell a $20 wristband which will give the kids unlimited access to the following games and food (f you don't purchase the wristband, each of these games/food is just one ticket each.)

  • Pumpkin Bean Bag Toss
  • Duck Pond
  • Baseball Throw (new!)
  • Whiffle Ball Toilet Toss
  • Plinko
  • Roll the Dice Game (new!)
  • Leapin' Lizards (new!)

The following are the premium games that take tickets.

  • Wheel of Fortune (2 tickets) - So many awesome prizes will be on the wheel, from gift cards to Beanie Boos, Wild Republic snakes, and more!
  • Candy Corn Guess (1 ticket) - Guess the number of candy corns in the jar - closest wins an awesome prize!
  • Cake Walk (2 tickets) - Who remembers Cake Walks from carnivals long ago? We will have rounds of Cake Walks throughout the day!

Tickets are needed to indulge in the games above, and also to purchase our delicious food and sweet treats that we will have for sale. We will have beautiful pumpkins that you can pre-purchase for $10 each (a limited number of pumpkins will be available for purchase the day of the event.)

Admission and ticket pre-sales are now closed. You are able to purchase everything at the door on Sunday!


The Fall Harvest needs you to volunteer for the festival, and/or donate food & prizes! For volunteers, consider taking a volunteer shift and splitting it with another parent or your spouse. There are also several double work bond opportunities! Are you an incredible baker or do you make a mean chili? Well, sign up to donate!
