Halloween Town
Discover Putnam’s fall features! The Town of Putnam along with the Putnam Business Association has been working with Nomad Digital Consulting and Jennerate, LLC to provide viewing entertainment for the community in light of the many cancellations due to the global pandemic.
During the month of October, the combined event committees have worked together to pay homage to the Great Pumpkin Festival and Zombie Fashion Show while including the Scarecrow Contest and a new fall Sand Sculpture.
The Sand Sculpture is a new addition that will highlight fall favorites from the Pumpkin Festival and Zombie Fashion Show. Handcrafted by Sandtasia and sponsored by Jewett City Savings Bank, Rawson Materials and Donny D’s Custom Landscaping, this 10’x10’ work of art will be displayed between the Putnam Public Library and the new Putnam branch of Jewett City Savings Bank.
The Scarecrow Contest returns this year featuring more scarecrows than ever before! Unique scarecrows created by individuals, businesses, groups and organizations can be viewed along Main Street, Union Square, Rotary Park and the River Trail. Applications to sign up for the Scarecrow Contest can be found at: https://pbadiscoverputnam.wufoo.com/forms/2020-fall-scarecrow-contest/
Pop-Up Putnam is an open-air market throughout Putnam’s Downtown spaces welcoming weekend visitors to discover unique artisan and merchant offerings. This 6-week series is held from noon to 4:30 p.m. through Oct. 24. Vendors feature handmade items; vendor spaces are spread far apart through town to offer plenty of physical distancing for shopping.

Putnam is “Creepin’ It Real” with another new feature that that will give visitors a ghoulish welcome into Downtown. Propped up above the Welcome to Putnam sign, this 10’x4’ hand-carved sign gives a nod to the fall season and can be appreciated at any time.
The Great Pumpkin makes an appearance for one day only: Oct. 17. It will be displayed in Rotary Park in front of the Bandstand. Folks are encouraged to enjoy Rotary Park for viewing the pumpkin; it makes a perfect location for a photo op! Scarecrows and Pop Up Putnam vendors will also be in Rotary Park that day.
