Located in the center of the beautiful Elk Grove Regional Park’s 127-acres, the Festival enters its 20th year in 2014 and has grown to become Elk Grove’s largest family festival. The Festival attracts a statewide audience of 40,000+ guests and promotes Elk Grove as a quality festival and events destination. Pumpkin growers from throughout California bring their pumpkins to the Festival and with them, their families and their spending money. Many of the Festival’s favorite attractions return this year including the Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off on Saturday. Sunday will feature the annual Pumpkin Regatta, a fierce boat-like competition featuring the giant orange orbs and some brave souls who will attempt to row them across Strauss Lake. NEW for 2014 we have contracted with Major League Eating to bring a MLE Pumpkin Pie Eating Competition to our Festival. MLE is the governing body of all stomach-centric sports. MLE manages the world’s greatest eaters such as Joey Chestnut, Sonya Thomas, Pat Bertoletti and Eater X.
