Kentville’s Pumpkin People Festival

Kentville’s Pumpkin People Festival

October 5 - 27, 2019

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!  


This year's theme is "Toon Town" and the Pumpkin People will be showcasing their very favourite classic cartoons from over the years!  We have it on "gourd authority" that Scooby Doo, Yogi Bear and the Bugs Bunny crew are all stopping by.  We're keeping some of our other anticipated visitors a secret for now.  Stay tuned and make sure you visit Kentville in October to see all 300 pumpkin heads for yourself! 

Supply Give-Away for Kentville Residents and Businesses: Saturday Sept 28th 9:00 am-10:30 am at Memorial Pool.
