About The Festival The 2017 Minges and Weber Family Pumpkin Festival is set to take place October 21-22, 2017, in Harrison, Ohio.
The Minges Pumpkin Festival began 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 Weber family hopes to continue the tradition that began over three decades ago.
This is an annual event that always takes place the third full weekend in October. The mission of this festival is to showcase different elements of agriculture while bringing together the surrounding community to celebrate the fall season in a family friendly atmosphere.
