Pumpkinfest Pumpkinfest Pumpkinfest Pumpkinfest

The 2021 International Weigh Off was the "Best of Both Worlds"!!

The Pumpkinfest committee made the decision to offer the "Best of Both Worlds" Live and Virtual in 2021 and the solution was as unique as the event!  This year’s festival was presented as a web-based live streaming broadcast, and included the JUMBOTRON featuring the live event as it happened in the public food court area at Pumpkinfest Village.  This hybrid version of the festival was welcomed by one and all! 

Although, due to covid safety protocols, the public could not access the weigh off area in person they could view the action from the comfort of their home OR on the Jumbotron in Pumpkinfest Village.  

The committee was happy to be able to give our growers the opportunity to record their measurements at an Official Giant Pumpkin Commonwealth site, and were extremely pleased to see the crowds back at the village in a safe capacity number, with social distancing and masks in place at the outdoor event.
