2020 Pumpkin Festival Cancelled But Pumpkins Will Be Available to Purchase

Summer 2020

Dear Friends and Supporters,

With a great sense of sadness we are announcing that the traditional Cal Poly Pomona Pumpkin Festival for 2020 will be cancelled. All of your favorite attractions like the Corn Maze, Petting Farm, Hay Ride and much more will have to wait until next year. However, we are still growing plenty of Pumpkins and are now working out how you will be able to safely pick out your favorite Jack o Lantern. New this year, we are growing Organic Pie Pumpkins for all of you that have rediscovered your kitchen during the lockdown. We will even provide some great recipes for Pumpkin Pie, Bread and a classic roasted Pumpkin Soup!

You will also want to look forward to the weeks ahead for some fun virtual contests, activities and live broadcasts including the All Time Super Best Pumpkin Carving Contest!

As these plans continue to evolve we will post updates on this webpage, social media, and our email list. We welcome your input and ideas to make this a fun and safe October. Your support in the past is greatly appreciated and we look forward to seeing you all again soon at Pumpkin Fest and all of the other activities and events at AGRIscapes and Discovery Farm.

Thank You,

Craig Walters
