PUMPKINFEST

Lots of attractions for visitors to enjoy

Pumpkinfest is open rain or shine! In case of poor weather, there are lots of indoor activities so kids will not be disappointed, and Pumpkinfest Rainchecks are given to everyone so they may return FREE on a nicer day.

Our annual Pumpkinfest is the way we at Gammondale celebrate 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 Nature Trail on the mountain is a beautiful place to explore.

Although we love animals, inconsideration of all our guests, please do not bring your pets to Pumpkinfest.
