WV Pumpkin Festival Educational Activities

Hello Educators,

Not only does the arrival of fall signify the start of a new school year, it signifies another West Virginia Pumpkin Festival. With that in mind, we would like to extend to you and your students an invitation to join us for the 34th annual WV Pumpkin Festival “School Days” on October 7th and 8th, 2021.

As always, “School Days” activities are designed with your students in mind and will be presented during the daytime hours of Thursday and Friday. These activities are designed to cover educational and positive role model reinforcement criteria which will justify your student’s attendance without penalizing your instructional requirements.

We offer special pricing for your attendance in order to make this event affordable for your students. Student pricing is $3.00 per student. Teachers, aides and bus drivers are admitted free. All other tickets are $5.00 until noon. Included with the price of student admission is a small pumpkin that each student will receive upon their exit from the park.

Attached is a list of our scheduled activities and attractions. You will find age appropriate activities and events no matter the age of your students.

To assist us in being better prepared we ask that you email us at wvpftreasurer@hotmail.com or leave a message @

304-544-7950 with the number of students and which day you plan to attend. This allows us to be better prepared for your arrival and with the number of pumpkins needed.

We look forward to having you and your students with us on October 1st and 2nd, 2020.
