SARATOGA SPRINGS — The 2023 Saratoga Giant Pumpkinfest will take place 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23 in downtown Saratoga Springs. This free and fun-for-all-ages event is presented by the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce at the Saratoga Springs City Center parking garage. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to marvel at giant pumpkins - some over 1,000 pounds - and watch the official weigh-off, which begins at 11 a.m. Growers from all over New York state and the Northeast bring the biggest pumpkins from their harvest and compete for the title of “Heaviest Pumpkin of Year,” along with additional categories and prizes.

The festival will include fall favorite activities as well as food and beverage vendors on-site and is located near the Saratoga Farmers’ Market at High Rock Park.
