About The Festival The 2018 Weber Family Pumpkin Festival is set to take place October 20-21, 2018 in Harrison, Ohio.
This event began as the Minges Pumpkin Festival in 1984. Over the years it transformed from a small backyard gathering into an event that brings together thousands of people from all over the region to celebrate the fall season.
In 2015 the festival relocated to a neighboring family farm. With the guidance and support of the Minges family, the transition took place and a tradition that began over three decades ago continues just a few minutes away.
This is an annual event that always takes place the third full weekend in October. this event features live music, more than 150 arts and crafts exhibitors, food, live demonstrations, and many activities for the kids. The ultimate mission of this festival is to showcase different elements of the farm and encourage people to develop a connection with agriculture while bringing together the surrounding community to celebrate the fall season in a family friendly atmosphere.
Special Thank you to these businesses for their support in making this event possible
