Pumpkin Festival at Denver Downs Farm

Denver Downs has 50 tons of pumpkins this year and really, what better way to celebrate the iconic fall symbol than a whole weekend dedicated to pumpkin-themed family fun?” said Catherine Garrison Davis, co-owner and special events planner for Denver Downs Farm. “My personal favorite is the Pumpkin Princess Pageant, a fun, casual outdoor pageant where little princesses ages 8 and under wear whatever they imagine a pumpkin princess would wear. It’s the sweetest thing and families love participating!”

The weekend consists of all things pumpkin: Pumpkin Princess Pageant, Pumpkin Pie Eating Contest, Pumpkin Bowling, Pumpkin Carving competition.
