Name: Elk Grove Giant Pumpkin Festival
Date: October 6, 2018 - October 7, 2018
What began in 1994 as a small harvest celebration is now Elk Grove’s largest family festival and the official California weigh-off site for a national Giant Pumpkin contest. The festival has something for everyone with attractions like carnival games and rides, live entertainment, pumpkin foods, pumpkin recipe contest, pumpkin pie-eating contest, scarecrow-making contest, pumpkin patch, and a race across the lake between giant pumpkin boats! The Elk Grove Giant Pumpkin Festival is hosted by the Cosumnes Community Services District (CSD) Parks and Recreation Department in partnership with many sponsors.
