Pumpkinfest 2020 will look a little different than years past.

The Pumpkinfest Board of Directors is proud to announce that Pumpkinfest 2020 is going ahead and is set to take place on October 3, as originally planned, but with some special modifications.

In a Port Elgin Pumpkinfest media release, the festival has been working closely with the Grey Bruce Health Unit and the municipal and provincial governments to ensure guidelines and recommendations are met "while we continue to offer this great festival experience in a new way."

This year’s event will be presented as a web-based streaming event that continues to feature our famous International Giant Vegetable Weigh-Off. Additional events will be added as the committees meet and start to format the new attractions and events.

“I’m proud of the Pumpkinfest Board members for being so proactive and thoughtful in their decision," said Pumpkinfest President Brad Scott. "Amidst a number of event cancellations they are moving forward with excitement and enthusiasm and are confident we can deliver a fantastic event while staying socially responsible.”
