                          About the WV Pumpkin Festival
    Since 1986 West Virginia Pumpkin Park in Milton has celebrated the glory of autumn and  the harvest with
    the West Virginia Pumpkin Festival, which has turned into one of the state's largest fests.  The festival was
    designed to help farmers with the raising and selling of pumpkins. Located in Milton, WV, between the two
    cities of Huntington and Charleston, along the I-64 corridor, the festival attracts attention from throughout
    the region.  Each October, more than 50,000 people travel to Milton to participate in our celebration of the
    pumpkin harvest.  

    The festival hosts a cultural array of activities for the entire family to enjoy.  In addition to over
    100 skilled artisans who display juried crafts, numerous special exhibits and demonstrations are presented
    throughout the festival.  Master craftsmen share their expertise in areas such as blacksmithing, pottery
    making, quilting and woodworking, a mountain men encampment, and lots of old-time demonstrations like
    sorghum making, and much more, along with many business booths.

    Some of the area's finest musicians can also be found displaying their talent at the
    WV Pumpkin Festival.  Whether you enjoy bluegrass, traditional music, or quality
    contemporary artists, you'll be certain to find an abundance of music to enjoy during your
    stay at the festival.
