The Magic of Keene Pumpkin Festival

Three hundred and sixty-four days a year Keene, NH, is a quintessential New England community with a pristine church at the head of a welcoming square. On October 18, 2014, that square will abound with jack-o'-lanterns carved by area school children! The bandstand will come alive with entertainment and a tower of pumpkins so spectacular it is called "spell-binding" will rival the church steeple. Delectables in the Food & Craft Court will send forth aromas of apple crisp and maple cotton candy throughout the pumpkin-lined city streets. After reclaiming the WORLD RECORD in 2013, Keene is on top of the world and Keene Pumpkin Festival is the darling of New England events. Admission is a suggested donation of $5 per adult plus a carved pumpkin.
