Get ready to let the good times roll at our annual PumpkinFest! This street festival and celebration of Autumn is pure family fun. Children and adults alike will have a blast taking part in traditional and some very non-traditional fall festivities during Western North Carolina's premier autumn festival. Bring your pumpkin (or purchase one downtown) and sign up early for the World-Famous Pumpkin Roll. The Costume Parade and Contest is another highlight of the day as well as the Pumpkin Pie Eating Contest. And don't miss out on more than 80 vendors including mountain arts & crafts along with great food! There is always live entertainment, including roving street performers. This fun event is held rain or shine!
