Franklin’s 21st Annual PumpkinFest



  • 95 East Main Street
    Franklin NC 28734


Autumn is in full swing for Franklin’s Annual PumpkinFest! We can’t wait to have people of all ages come celebrate the season with Western North Carolina’s premiere autumn festival and everything pumpkin.

Come rain or shine, PumpkinFest reels into action on Saturday, October 21 with the World Famous Pumpkin Roll. Sign up early to fling your pumpkin down the giant Frogtown hill, then stick around for our costume parade and contest and pumpkin pie eating contest (if you saved room from all the great food vendors!). In the meantime, don’t miss out on mountain arts, crafts, and entertainment to the tune of roving street performers. We can’t wait to celebrate fall with you!
