Sinkland Farms Pumpkin Festival – A Family Tradition

Sinkland Farms Pumpkin Festival – A Family Tradition 2Acres of pumpkins, gourds, squash, and sunflowers are ready to escort families near and far into everyone’s favorite season: FALL! The annual Pumpkin Festival, now in its 31st year, is the premiere local destination for fall festivities unlike anywhere else. The traditional fall harvest brings out the best of farm life during this not-to-miss event.

There is something for everyone! Take a hayride to the pumpkin patch to pick out your own “great” pumpkin, make your way through a mind-boggling corn maze or visit the farm animals. There will also be horseback trail rides, pony rides, a huge kid’s zone with a giant slide, games, a kid-friendly zip, a barrel train ride, and so much more!

Enjoy local live music and A Capella groups while sipping craft beer and wine on the terrace. Watch pig racing, try the Bad Axe Throw or savor delights from visiting food trucks. There will be many artists and crafters ready to entice you with hand-crafted goods. For a sweet treat, enjoy hand-dipped ice cream and, of course, Sinkland’s extra special kettle korn. The Cottage Shoppe will be stocked full of seasonal treats and gifts.

The HokieBird, the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets marching band, the Highty-Tighties, and many more entertainers will be making special appearances.
