Returning October 2021

The Keene Pumpkin Festival

In the spirit of community safety and health, the Keene Pumpkin Festival 2020 will not take place this year. Stay tuned as the Pumpkinfest Committee is planning some other ‘safe and fun’ ways for our households to celebrate the fall season, our dedicated sponsors and local businesses and our community on Saturday October 17, 2020. You will need pumpkins so plant those seeds and watch them grow!

The idyllic countryside hamlet of Keene Ontario, located just 15 minutes east of Peterborough has played host of The Keene Pumpkin Festival since 2007. A family event that is fun for people of all ages. Experience country charm in the picturesque hills of Keene. Be amazed at the giant pumpkin weigh-off, with some gourds weighing over 1000 lbs. Delight at the decorated pumpkin pyramid, and entertain the kids at the fun Kid Zone with bouncy castles, face painting and other great activities throughout the day. Climb through the mini bale maze or enjoy the petting zoo, horse and wagon rides, or watch the Hot Diggity Dog performances. Great vendors for shopping, and a variety of delicious local foods are available. Wet your whistle in the Lions Pub, and enjoy live music on stage. Quilt raffle draws, and an antique car and tractor show on site. The day kicks off at 10 a.m. with a decorative parade through the streets of Keene. Come and enjoy country hospitality at its finest. All are welcome.
