West Virginia Pumpkin Festival

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.
