"Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart."--Elizabeth Andrew

Volunteering and COVID-19:

We realize many people enjoy the ability to volunteer at our event as a way to show pride in their community, at this time we are uncertain what, if any volunteering opportunities will exist for this on-line event - as we get closer to the event please check this page for updates!


Volunteers play an important role at Port Elgin Pumpkinfest.  Each year, well over 200 volunteers are recruited to help in all aspects of the festival from pumpkin carving to car show parking. Volunteering for Pumpkinfest is a great way to get involved in the event and see it from a whole new perspective! Get a group together and come be a part of Port Elgin's biggest event!
