Pumpkinfest Pumpkinfest Pumpkinfest Pumpkinfest

The International Weigh Off Returns in 2021!

We are proud to announce this year’s event will be presented as a web-based live streaming broadcast, and be available on Bruce Telecom and YouTube!  Although the public cannot access the weigh off area - there is a solution!  A JUMBOTRON featuring the live event as it happens in the public food court area at Pumpkinfest Village.  Join us online or LIVE at Pumpkinfet Village on Saturday October 2nd.  More information to come!  

The committee is happy to be able to give our growers the opportunity to record their measurements at an Official Giant Pumpkin Commonwealth site, and are excited to watch it all while celebrating with the community!  

As our first priority is the safety of all; social distancing measures and mandatory masks rules will be striclty enforced.
