The Pumpkin Festival is a two-day event held every October at AGRIscapes, Cal Poly Pomona. Started in 1993, the festival has become a very popular event, drawing thousands of visitors to pick pumpkins from a patch at AGRIscapes. The Don B. Huntley College of Agriculture grows 40,000 pumpkins for the event. The festival also features a corn maze that is specially grown for the occasion, horse rides, and a petting zoo.
Visitors can compete and play games run by student clubs or listen to live music. Food and drinks are available to purchase from vendors. After the Pumpkin Festival, the huge pumpkin patch will remain open Tuesday through Sunday (closed Mondays) until October 30th. Field trips are also available after the festival.
Sign ups begin in August. Visit our website for more information: https://www.cpp.edu/~agriscapes/pumpkin-festival.htm
