Annapolis Valley Pumpkin FestivalBack to Top
Month of October
Many communities in the Annapolis Valley hold annual harvest festivals and fall fairs. These festivals were first started as a celebration to honor the bounty of the land and the crops it produced.
The eastern end of the Annapolis Valley from Kentville to Windsor have joined together to provide a full month of pumpkin fun and harvest festivals. There will be over thirty pumpkin events going on and twenty-five restaurants participating with harvest meals and pumpkin desserts. Farm markets and U-Picks will be going full force with all your favorites, including corn maze's and haunted barns/houses. You will also find art displays, concerts, dances, races and games happening in several communities throughout the month.
As part of this festival Kentville will again host their famous Pumpkin People Displays all over town and Windsor will also be holding their very popular Windsor-West Hants Pumpkin Regatta.
