What to Expect

The Harrison Pumpkin Festival is a family-friendly event. Expect to see people of all ages taking in the fall festivities. The farm is a very colourful attraction, as there are multiple shades of pumpkins in the field. There are beautiful flowers on site as well, including dahlias, zinnia, cosmos and sunflowers.

The inaugural Harrison Pumpkin Festival also features fun contests. Expect to see people filling their arms with pumpkins. Folks can weigh their picks and compete in the heaviest pumpkin competition which runs for the full festival. There’s also a photo contest on Instagram showing off creative ways to carry pumpkins, so people will be taking lots of pictures.
