Pumpkin Festival 2017

  • Sun 29 October 2017
  • 11 am – 4 pm

Join us to celebrate Summer’s bounty at our annual Pumpkin Festival as we harvest a wide variety of squash from the Roth Bar & Grill kitchen garden. This special day includes live music, fancy dress, and a host of activities for both adults and children – including pumpkin carving, face painting and special workshops. Children are invited to dress up in their finest pumpkin themed costumes to take part in our Pumpkin Parade. Bring along your homegrown pumpkins, gourds and other squash to enter into the Grand Pumpkin Competitions. There will be categories for Largest, Best-in-Show and Best Misfit, judged by local resident and renowned gardener, Charles Dowding; Best Bake, judged by Roth Bar & Grill Head Chef James Jesty; and Extreme Carving, judged by Manuela & Iwan Wirth. Roth Bar & Grill will be serving seasonal food and drink throughout the day. To register your entries for the Grand Pumpkin Competitions, please fill in the form here. Late entries will be accepted on the day. All competition entries must be delivered in person by 1 pm on the day. The winners will be announced at 2 pm.
