More About Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off: Online Community Event

Given the continuing concerns and health guidance around COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Elk Grove Giant Pumpkin Festival.

Since 1994, the annual Elk Grove Giant Pumpkin Festival has deepened our sense of community through fun and fellowship. Last year, we welcomed over 70,000 attendees, witnessed a 1,938-pound pumpkin win top prize, and cheered on brave paddlers as they raced hollowed-out pumpkin boats across the lake!

At this time, we are planning to hold the 2020 Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off on Saturday, October 3, 2020 in Elk Grove Park. In consultation and coordination with local and state authorities, we believe we can conduct the Weigh-Off in a safe and responsible manner. The Festival Committee is exploring ways to share the Weigh-Off virtually with our amazing community and beyond.

We are grateful for 26 years of tremendous support from our attendees, growers, volunteers, sponsors and all who are involved, and we cannot wait to be together again in 2021.
