Pumpkin Festival

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 40,000 people travel to Milton to participate in our celebration of the pumpkin harvest.

Milton Performing Arts Center

The Milton Performing Arts Center opened in 2011. It is conveniently located at the WV Pumpkin Park, approximately 5 minutes from I64. With a seating capacity of 600, concession area, handicapped accessible restrooms, and plenty of free parking, the Milton P.A.C. presents a wide range of programs that entertain, enrich, and educate the diverse population of the region and enhance the economic vitality of Western West Virginia. We strive to expose more people to the arts and quality performances.
