Celebrate all that fall has to offer at Pumpkin Fest

Bradford West Gwillimbury, ON (September 28, 2021) – Leaves are falling, the air is getting cooler and Pumpkin Fest will ‘leaf’ you loving fall even more! The Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury is hosting the fifth annual Pumpkin Fest on Saturday, October 16 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Henderson Memorial Park located on Line 9 just west of Sideroad 10. 

Pumpkin Fest is an all-ages event that includes live on-stage music, busker performances, wagon rides, pumpkin carving (one per child, while supplies last) and a farmers’ market. All activities are free, including an inflatable corn maze, mini-golf and other games, as well as crafts and a caricature artist. The main stage will feature local band ‘The Ninth Line’, along with kid-friendly entertainment and music from Team T & J and Russ Clayton and two fitness classes: Zumba Kids and Bollywood. Special guests include BWG Fire & Emergency Services, who will be providing public education and a visit from the fire truck. 

Enjoy food for sale, including a fundraising BBQ by the Bradford Lions and soup from local restaurant Don Cherry’s Sports Grill. If you have a sweet tooth be sure to check out The Munchies Concession (in support of a Bradford Christmas) and Sweet B’s Bakery. The Bradford Farmers’ Market will be extending its schedule by one week in order to bring its vendors to Henderson Memorial Park for Pumpkin Fest.

Preventative measures will be taken to ensure compliance with provincial COVID-19 restrictions and public safety measures. There is no pre-registration required, but capacities will be limited based on the provincial gathering limits for outdoor festivals. We ask that participants follow physical distancing requirements and, if that is difficult to do, we encourage you to wear a mask. If you or anyone in your family are feeling unwell, please refrain from attending. All event attendees will be required to complete a COVID screening upon arrival.
