Welcome to the Official Website of PUMPKINFEST!
Held in Historic Franklin, North Carolina Saturday • October 25, 2014• 9:00am to 4:00pm
Autumn in the mountains of Western North Carolina is unsurpassed and when you combine a fall weekend in the mountains with Franklin's 18th Annual PumpkinFest Street Festival ... you get pure familiy fun!
Children and adults alike will have a blast taking part in traditional and some very non-traditional fall festivities during Western North Carolina's premiere fall festival.
You'll need your rest as Saturday's events bring challenges and fun for everyone. Historic Downtown Franklin is full tilt with everything pumpkin on Saturday. Bring your pumpkin (or purchase one downtown) and sign up early for the World Famous Pumpkin Roll.
The Costume Parade and Contest is another highlight of the day as well as the Pumpkin Pie Eating Contest. And don't miss out on the great food, mountain arts & crafts, and entertainment including roving street performers.

PLUS THERE'S MORE!
On Friday, October 24th, Highlands Road Merchants will offer Free Hayrides and treats for kids from 3 to 6 p.m.
