Pumpkin Fest

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

The Pennsboro Pumpkin Fest has hosted over 46,600 visitors in Adams-Ricci Park located in Enola, PA. Visitors are entertained with crafts, commercial displays, church groups, music, a great variety of food, contests, kid’s activities and amusements.

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 candy for the kids. 

COVID PRECAUTIONS - Please follow COVID guidelines encouraging the wearing of face masks throughout the event space. There are fewer vendor booths and larger corridors to ensure social distancing. Hand washing and sanitizing stations are available during the event for public use.
