AGRICULTURAL FAIR

Indeed, Pumpkinfest is about more than pumpkins! Has your vegetable harvest ever struck you as somewhat mammal-like? Do you fancy yourself a master canner, photographer, or centrepiece arranger? Think your baking skills would put the Cake Boss to shame? Come show us what you got!

THE PUMPKIN PROMSE

Do you ever wonder what happens to the giant pumpkins after our competition?

Chris Okell, the founder of "The Pumpkin Promise," picks most of our pumpkins. The Pumpkin Promise is a non-profit organization founded by Chris Okell in loving memory of his wonderful mother Marietta, who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2010. Chris works hard every year to raise funds and awareness for CancerCare, MB, by carving and displaying these giant pumpkins!
