Pumpkin Festival Listings Worldwide

pumpkin festival entries

Find information, listings and links to the best Pumpkin Festivals Worldwide. 

There is so much to do at these events.  Even if you haven't entered your prize exhibit at the giant pumpkin weigh-off, you can enter pumpkin costume competitions, the Pumpkin Queen or Princess event, browse and snack your way through the pumpkin food stalls and get some recipe inspiration, go on a hayride, or watch a duck race.  There's all manner of Guinness Book of World Records attempts, not just for the world record pumpkin but for how many Jack O' Lanterns can be lit at the same time, and loads more.  Not every festival will have every kind of activity, but you can be sure they will all be a lot of fun. There are pumpkin festival events to suit all interests and ages. 

If you've been to any of these events, do come back an tell us all about it and share your photos via the submission form below! 

If you're a festival organiser and I have missed off your festival, (oops sorry) or you'd like to send me some more information about your event, which I can publish on the site, or you'd like to advertise on this site,  please send me a message via the contact form on the left column.
