Harvest Pumpkin Festival

2014 Harvest Pumpkin Festival Brochure and Schedule available October 1

 The Armstrong Spallumcheen 14th Annual Harvest Pumpkin Festival is presented by the Armstrong Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce in partnership with businesses and community groups.

Harvest Pumpkin Festival was created in 2000 to bring the community together in a season that is as enjoyable to us as the summer months and now offers an opportunity for visitors to see that we are more than sun and summer.

Armstrong Spallumcheen has deep roots in agriculture and community - and that is what this festival celebrates.  It is a great place to bring your family and friends for fun and there is something for everyone at this event. The event has grown to showcase not only the key event held Thanksgiving weekend, but activities and events throughout the month of October.

Visitors are more than welcome to try their hand at Pumpkin Carving, pet a mini goat at the petting zoo, enter a family favorite in the baking contest or enter a team in the 'Great Pumpkin Catapult' event. The 'Great Pumpkin Catapult' has featured teams from throughout the Thompson Okanagan and in 2011, two of our teams were featured on TSN.

*Please Note : 'Family Day' has been moved from the 4th Saturday in October to Thanksgiving weekend.

Lawn Tractor Races

Somethin' Pumpkin Baking Contest
