Port Elgin Pumpkinfest encourages Non-Profit Organizations to fundraise during the festival weekend in unique and creative ways.

Groups not wishing to perform a fee for service contract are encouraged to be creative in their fundraising activities by supplying an attraction to the festival.  Such examples of this include a paintball booth, a puppet show, and a motorcycle show, as well as numerous raffles and barbeques.

The festival provides exposure to almost 60,000 people over the two days to create a spectacular fundraising venue. In the past years, close to 40 different non-profit organizations (with well over 300 volunteers combined), chose to fundraise at Port Elgin Pumpkinfest collecting over $40,000 each year, which stayed in our community to benefit various causes.
