In 2017, the Pennsboro Pumpkin Fest hosted 43,659 visitors in Adams-Ricci Park Enola, PA.  Visitors were entertained with craft booths, commercial displays, church groups, music, great food, contests, kids activities and  amusements. The Pumpkin Fest has become a “must-attend” event for the mid state area.   Unfortunately, rain and high winds Saturday morning had a negative impact on the 2017 visitor traffic count.

This website outlines all the activities you can experience during the event.  Paved spots within the park will be available, but they fill up quickly Saturday and Sunday mornings.  Additional paved parking is available in the East field along with un paved parking behind the paved area.  We will also use the Highmark parking lot for overflow, please park only in the designated lots.  You can ride the free shuttle from Highmark only 1.2 miles to the Pumpkin Fest drop off point near the South entrance.  Shuttle Buses will return you to the Highmark lot until 30 minutes after the fair closes at 5:00pm.

77 + spaces have been designated for Handicapped. The first area is adjacent to the Concession Stand and during the event it can be reached through the North entrance off Magaro Road.

Additional Handicapped parking is available in the lot near the Citizens pavilion. Fire police will be available to direct you to a spot. You will need your Handicapped placard to gain admittance.
