Celebrated In: United States Of America
Three hundred and sixty-four days a year Keene, NH, is a quintessential New England community with a pristine church at the head of a welcoming square. On October 19, 2013, that square will abound with jack-o'lanterns carved by area school children! The bandstand will come alive with entertainment and a tower of pumpkins so spectacular it is called "spell-binding" will rival the church steeple. Delectables in the Food & Craft Court will send forth aromas of apple crisp and maple cotton candy throughout the pumpkin-lined city streets. Eight world records and 22 years later, Keene Pumpkin Festival is the darling of New England events. Admission is a suggested donation of $5 per adult plus a carved pumpkin.
We know you love the spectacular Keene Pumpkin Festival as much as we do. If you are able to make a gift to help us let it shine, please do! Last year, the combined generosity of our website and Facebook visitors was our third largest source of funding! This year, we're counting on festival fans to lead the way. Thank you for loving Keene
