The Annual Yadkin Valley Pumpkin Festival is held in Historic Downtown Elkin on the 4th Saturday in September from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.

The annual Great Pumpkin Weigh-Off starts at 8 am and ends around 1 pm located at 257 Standard St.  There will be pumpkins & watermelons from growers located all over the East Coast. Some will weigh in at an excess of 1,000 lbs with hopes of placing in the Great Pumpkin Commonwealth top ten.

New Kid Zone is located at 257 Standard St where you will find bounce houses, a petting zoo, and pony rides….

The Main Street of Elkin will be filled with live music, and vendors of every description featuring everything from antiques, jump houses, and funnel cakes to functional pottery, pumpkin painting, wood furnishings, wine racks, BBQ, baked goods, sand art, pumpkin butter, polish sausages, handcrafted gifts and so much more.

Touch a Truck is a great way to learn about different types of industrial vehicles and how they work.  This gives children of all ages a chance to be hands-on.

It's a great time to be had by all. We look forward to seeing you there.
