Waterford Pumpkinfest is a yearly event hosted by the Waterford Lions & Lioness to celebrate our community and help raise funds for community projects.  Pumpkinfest is a family event with activities for young and old alike.  From fireworks on Friday, a top notch parade on Saturday and a Car Show on Sunday there are many events in between, some include MarketPlace, Creepsville Spookhouse, pumpkin carving and live music.  Come check us out, visit our towering pumpkin pyramid, you will not be disappointed!

The Pumpkinfest Committee is busy finalizing plans for Pumpkinest 2018, to be held on October 12, 13 & 14. All forms have been updated.

We hope to see you in October! If you have an idea or would like to help with Pumpkinfest please see the Volunteer tab for opportunities or the Contact tab for information on how to reach us.
