PumpkinFest 2023 at The Grange
A Celebration of Fall
The first flakes in the high country have fallen, pumpkin spice lattes are here, and pumpkin beers are ready to be sipped, all signs that fall is just a few weeks away. But one event officially starts the fall season here in The Meadows. Pumpkinfest is a fall classic here. Neighbors enjoy coming together to celebrate the season while the kids show off their Halloween costumes. This year’s special event is back at The Grange and will happen on Saturday, October 14, from 1 – 4 p.m.
The Neighborhood Tradition Continues
Take an afternoon and enjoy the beautiful fall weather during PumpkinFest just behind The Grange in the Meadows. It’s one of the area’s best fall festivals. Take the family and enjoy music, arts and crafts, games, rides for the kids, trick-or-treating, and concessions.
Enjoy The Rides
Let your kids jump in and have fun on rides throughout the afternoon. To ride, you must fill out a waiver which you can either do the day of the event or at The Grange during the week of October 9 – 13. Learn more about the waivers here.
It’s not quite Halloween, but get your kids ready by dressing them up in their costumes so they can practice their trick-or-treating skills. They can collect candy from sponsor booths all afternoon.
Get a Free Pumpkin
One of the most popular features of Pumpkinfest is the giant pumpkin patch. Each household can wander and pick its perfect pumpkin for free! Then, you can grab additional pumpkins for $5/each (cash only).
