Vermont Pumpkin Chuckin’ Festival

Get ready for the 7th Annual Vermont Pumpkin Chuckin’ (VTPC) Festival at the Stoweflake Resort and Spa in Stowe. The event benefits the Lamoille Family Center, which has a thirty-eight year history of supporting Lamoille Valley families through early care, and educational services, home visiting, parent education, playgrounds, child care resource and referral, youth services, and emergency assistance. The event gives kids and adults a chance to build something with their hands and compete; a cross between a shot put contest and a Soap Box Derby.

The Festival runs from 11am to 4pm, and features three rounds of competitive pumpkin chuckin’ at 12:30pm, 1:30pm and 2:30pm, with awards shortly after the last round. No dogs or outside food or beverage are allowed at the event. Along with the pumpkin chuckin’ contest comes music, children’s activities, chili cook-off, and great food; all creating an enjoyable fall day. Music for this year’s festival will again be provided by two bands; House Dunn, John Smyth, which will be performing periodically from 11am to 4pm.

Cost: $5 for ages 5 and over | free for 4 and under
