Barnesville Pumpkin Festival
September 24, 2020 - September 27, 2020Free
The highlights of this four-day festival, held Sept. 24-27, 2020 (always the last full weekend in September), include an antique and classic car show, craft displays, farm machinery, hog calling, tall tales, royalty contests, a parade, food, a quilt show, live music, a 5k race, family fun, and much more.
The 2017 King Pumpkin, grown by Barnesville’s own Todd and Donna Skinner, broke the festival and state record for the year as recorded by the Great Pumpkin Commonwealth. Growers will attempt to beat the 2,150-pound mark. Pumpkin pie eating, pie baking, pumpkin decorating, and pumpkin roll contests are also part of the festivities.
