Pumpkin Festivals and Giant Pumpkin Weigh Offs

Pumpkin Festivals

Pumpkins Festivals - the last outdoor events of the year.

Giant pumpkin weigh offs and pumpkin festivals are the last of the great outdoor festivals for the year. The theme is pumpkins, pumpkins and more pumpkins. Fall is in the air. And, for many areas, the snow will soon fall. But for now, it’s great to be outdoors browsing craft booths, sipping on cider, playing pumpkin games watching bands, and many other activities. Most of all, we gawk in awe at the giant pumpkin weigh offs. If you’re lucky, you’ll see a pumpkin weigh in at over a ton!

Here are links to many of the biggest, most organized pumpkin weigh offs and festivities. 

Giant pumpkin growers and festival organizers have worked hard. They have moved their giants from their pumpkin patches. Now, the biggest pumpkins ever grown, are on display in one giant pumpkin patch at your local festival. So, make sure to go. And, bring the kids!

Important Note: COVID-19 may cause the cancellation of some festivals again this year. Contact your local site for festival and weigh off dates and times.
