Spookley the Square Pumpkin is a unique pumpkin that delivers a special message of tolerance and kindness that is just right for fall…and any time of the year!

  • Spookley was first introduced to millions of children in the book The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin, in which he is shunned by all of the round pumpkins until a mighty storm threatens to destroy the entire pumpkin patch and only Spookley, with his unique shape, can save the day.
  • Spookley is now a featured attraction at a growing network of pumpkin patches, corn mazes, and fall festivals across North America

Spookley is the Official Spokes-Pumpkin for National Bullying Prevention Month in October through a partnership with PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.

Demarest Farm is delighted to be partnering with Spookley, PACER and farms across the country to raise awareness for bullying prevention.

MOVIE NIGHT ETIQUETTE

  • As a result of safe social distancing we will be selling tickets online to make sure we do not exceed our capacity.
  • You can bring a vehicle that is correct for your preferred parking spot (if available) smaller vehicles park closer to the front.
  • Farm staff reserves the right to direct you where to park to watch the movie and that spot may be different than the one you choose.
  • Always dim your lights before entering the lot.
  • Please don’t litter.
  • Car engines cannot be running. We would have an environmental nightmare on our hands to have a field full of cars running all evening. Momentary starts are OK, but that is all. We have many patrons who like to sit out on warmer evenings and would not appreciate breathing in another vehicle’s fumes. In cooler weather dress warm and bring blankets. We have plenty of hot food and beverages in our concession stand.
  • Trucks & vans: please be considerate and park in the rear of the lot or at the ends of rows, as directed by the theater staff. Otherwise, patrons in automobiles may not be able to see over your roof.
  • Keep your foot off the brake pedal when parked.
  • Enjoy the outdoor experience! There’s nothing better than watching movies under the stars!

WEATHER

Rain Date: In the event of rain date, we will reschedule for another night. Sorry, NO refunds.

Synopsis

  • Rating: G
  • Director: Bernie Denk
  • Running Time: 45 minutes

Spookley the Square Pumpkin: In a world where “the only good pumpkins are round pumpkins,” Spookley the Square Pumpkin is often teased by the other pumpkins because of his square shape. Soon, Spookley is befriended by Edgar, Allan and Poe, three hilarious spiders, who convince Spookley that, square or not, he has a right to be the “Pick of the Patch” on Halloween.

A square pumpkin the “Pick of the Patch”? Not if mean round pumpkins Big Tom and Little Tom can help it. These two bullies tease and taunt Spookley because of his square roots. Although he is encouraged to continue to become the “Pick of the Patch” by kindly Jack Scarecrow and his bat sidekicks, Boris and Bella, Spookley isn’t sure he has what it takes until a mighty storm threatens to destroy the entire patch.

As the storm rolls the round pumpkins across the patch towards a raging river below, Spookley’s square shape helps him save the day. Spookley realizes “it’s fine to be round while the weather is fair, but there are times it’s better to be a square!”
