Our annual PUMPKINFEST is the way Gammondale Farm celebrates the magic of Autumn. Sitting at the base of Candy Mountain in the Slate River Valley, our farm illuminates with warm colour and creates a beautiful backdrop for our seasonal outdoor activities and events. Gammondale’s Forest Maze on the mountain is a beautiful place to explore.

Although we love animals, in consideration of all our guests, please do not bring your pets to PUMPKINFEST.

For 29 years, Gammondale Farm has been a Thunder Bay family tradition. There are tons of outdoor attractions including Picking out an Amazing Pumpkin, Canada’s Biggest Pumpkin Catapult, Pumpkin Train and Pumpkin Slingshot. Get up close and personal with Northwestern Ontario’s biggest horse, Ike, one of our Gentle giant Percheron horses. Other attractions included in the price of admission are the Bronco Train, Corn Cannon, “BOO” Barn, Farm Animals, Monster Forest Maze, Barnyard Maze, Trike Trails, Duck Races, Tire’d Horses, Straw Mountain, *new* No Left Turns Maze, *new* Farm Hoppers and “Needle in a Haystack” Photo Contest. 

To ensure maximum safety and to control the number of visitors on the farm, you should plan to buy your tickets in advance online.

Please contact Gammondale Farm if you need help. Arrival times are every hour with limited capacity per time slot. Plan to spend about 2 hours at PUMPKINFEST to enjoy all the amazing activities.

Please keep in mind that dogs and other pets are not allowed to attend PUMPKINFEST.
