WV Pumpkin Festival Educational Activities

Hello Educators,

Can you feel the “Fall” in the air? It that time of year that I look forward to the most. It’s WV Pumpkin Festival Time! The 2021 WV Pumpkin Festival will be held Thursday, October 7th through Sunday, October 10th. Once again Thursday and Friday are designated as “School Days”. “School Days” activities are scheduled with school aged children in mind. They cover educational and historical criteria which will justify your student’s attendance without cutting into your instructional time.

Some of the things that we have scheduled for this year are old fashion apple butter making, a working blacksmith, a glass blower, wooden bucket maker, Birds of Prey, and much, much more.

“School Days” pricing is $3 per student. Teachers, aides and bus drivers are admitted free. All other tickets are $5 until noon. Included with the price of admission is a small pumpkin that each student will receive when their class exits the park as a group.

If you would like to bring school lunches for your students, there will be an area with picnic tables for dining.

To assist us in being prepared to welcome every student, I ask that you send me an email @ president@wvpumpkinpark.com. Please tell me how many students, teachers, aides and bus drivers will be with your group, which day you will be attending and your scheduled time of arrival. This allows us to be prepared for your arrival and with the number pf pumpkins needed. You may also send any questions or concerns you may have to this email address.

I hope to see you and your students in October.

Thank you,

Cindy Hinkle
