Pumpkin Fest

PF Decision

Pumpkin Fest is always held in October on the Saturday and Sunday before Columbus Day
OCTOBER  9 & 10, 2021

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, the 2020 Pennsboro Pumpkin Fest has been cancelled.

In 2019, the Pennsboro Pumpkin Fest hosted over 46,600 visitors in Adams-Ricci Park located in Enola, PA. Visitors were entertained with crafts, commercial displays, church groups, music, a great variety of food, contests, kid’s activities and amusements. The Pennsboro Pumpkin Fest has become a “must-attend” event for the Mid-State area.

With over 200 vendors, Pumpkin Fest has plenty to offer for people of all ages!

pumpkin fest hours of operationNote to Visitors :

ADDITIONAL RESTROOMS - In addition to the park facilities located near the Caboose (on either side of the Information Booth), extra restrooms are available next to the Gazebo stage.

NO PETS ALLOWED - Even though Adams-Ricci is a very dog-friendly park, pets are not allowed in the fairgrounds during the hours of operation (Saturday, 9:30-5pm & Sunday, 11am-5pm) due to the close proximity and large number of attendees.

NO LITTERING - Please be considerate of other patrons and our park by disposing trash and recyclables into the proper containers. Pumpkin Fest Staff will empty cans periodically throughout the event.

PARKING - Pumpkin Fest attendance has increased each year. Not everyone will find a prime parking spot. Please consider parking at Highmark and taking the shuttle that will drop visitors off conveniently close to the venue. This may add a few extra minutes to your Pumpkin Fest visit, but will undoubtedly avoid the parking lot headaches.

PARK RULES - East Pennsboro Township Park Rules & Regulations still apply during the hours of Pennsboro Pumpkin Fest operation.

INFORMATION BOOTH - Visit the Information Booth near the Caboose for specific vendor locations, contest & entertainment schedules, as well as Panther Station Picket Order Forms and Commemorative 20th Annual Pennsboro Pumpkin Fest Merchandise (reduced prices from last year).
