Skagit Valley Giant Pumpkin Festival
Saturday, September 17, 2022
9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
We want to extend our appreciation and thank everyone who came out to support our Skagit Valley Giant Pumpkin Festival. We watched 11 giants roll in, danced to live music, went on tractor rides, ate sweets and sipped on coffee while pumpkins were carefully weighed. Let’s just say, the scales tipped at 1,614.00 lbs, with Joel Holland’s giant pumpkin grown out of Sumner, WA. Joel is a master pumpkin grower who has won first place a few years here at the Nursery. We want to thank our wonderful sponsors including the Skagit Food Co-op, Tractor Supply, and Coastal Farm and Ranch for their generous donations toward this wonderful festival.
The pumpkins will be available for viewing here at the Nursery for the next week or two before they head to our sponsors, so swing by and experience these giants for yourself.
