The annual Elk Grove Giant Pumpkin Festival welcomes guests of all ages to Elk Grove Regional Park over the first weekend in October. What began in 1994 as a small harvest celebration is now Elk Grove’s largest family festival and attracts an estimated 45,000 guests each year!
Some of California’s heftiest pumpkins will weigh off at the festival. The festival has something for everyone with many attractions, including the Elk Grove World Pumpkin Pie Eating Championship, pumpkin derby, pumpkin recipe contest, scarecrow-making contest, kids’ zone, live entertainment, an art walk, crafts, pumpkin food, and a race across the lake between giant pumpkin boats!
Hosted by the Cosumnes Community Services District (CSD) Parks and Recreation Department in partnership with many sponsors
