Statesville, NC-- Join us in Downtown Statesville on Saturday, November 6 for the 18th Annual Statesville Pumpkin Fest. From 10 am to 5 pm, the streets will be bustling with people and Downtown will be filled with live music, arts and crafts, great food, shopping, children’s activities, and much more. 


We are excited to unveil a new layout to enhance your Pumpkin Fest experience. We’ve worked to attract some new vendors that we can’t wait for you to visit along with some old favorites that will be back.  The festival layout changes include: the Main Stage will be on S. Center Street; you will find kids performing on N. Meeting Street at the Community Stage; the Corks, Taps & Barrels Garden can be found near the square on N. Center Street; the Kids Zone has shifted to E. Broad Street and the Classic Car Cruise-In will be found on W. Broad Street.


Event organizers have worked hard to pull this year’s festival together and will be hosting a variety of music and entertainment including Carolina Ridgeline, American Holler, and Red Dirt Revival on S. Center St. at the Main Stage, hosted by WAME Real Country 92.9 & 550. Numerous other performances will happen throughout the day including demonstrations of dance, gymnastics, and martial arts on the Community Stage located on N. Meeting St. (see schedule below).

Kids will be entertained all day long in the Kids’ Zone (on E. Broad St.), which will offer a variety of inflatables! All-day wristbands or individual tickets for the Kids’ Zone will be available for purchase at the festival.
