Event Details

The Circleville Pumpkin Show, Ohio’s Oldest and Largest Festival, is a
member of The Ohio Festivals & Events Association.

The first Pumpkin Show was held in 1903. George Haswell, Mayor of
Circleville at that time, decided it would be a great idea to try to get the
country folks and the city folks together. So he invited the country folks
to bring the best of their produce to town on designated dates and
display them on the streets of Circleville so that the city folks would be
able to appreciate their efforts.

The Circleville Pumpkin Show has always been held on the streets of downtown Circleville. The early shows covered
about 3 city blocks and today it covers more than 8 city blocks. The streets are filled with 25-30 Amusement Rides and
over 300 Food Booths, Games & Craft Vendors.

The Circleville Pumpkin Show attracts over 400,000 visitors (100,000 per day) to this small community of 12,000 people.
They come to see the giant pumpkins, the world’s largest Pumpkin Pie, parades, entertainment, attractions, and try
various pumpkin-flavored delicacies.
