Kentville’s Pumpkin People Festival

Kentville’s Pumpkin People Festival

October 1 - 29, 2022

Visit Kentville in October to experience the magic of the Pumpkin People.  You never know what kind of silly antics you’ll see these gourd-headed guys getting up to!  

pumpkin people are happening on October 1-29

The Pumpkin People really love animals of all kinds.  So, this year the Pumpkin People are creating an Animal Kingdom for you to explore! We have it on "gourd authority" that Lion, Hippo and Giraffe are all stopping by.  We're keeping some of our other animal guests a secret for now, but you can be sure that most of your faves will be here in Town.  Stay tuned and make sure you visit Kentville in October to see 300 pumpkin heads and their cool animal friends for yourself!

Save the date, and we'll see you in K-town this October!
