The Pumpkin Festival Committee was established in 1996 and the first Festival was held on September 19th and 20th, 1997. The annual Pumpkin Festival is a three-day event that starts on the third Friday in September. Our festival begins with a night parade where everything is lighted from bicycles to cement trucks. Thousands of people line Goddard Road to wait for the fun. Our street festival offers wonderful music, food, crafts and games for all ages. You can enter a pumpkin rolling, pumpkin pie eating or a pumpkin seed-spitting contest. Visit or enter our Classic Car Show, our classic Tractor Show or just relax and listen to music. Our Downtown Festival is a celebration of friends and family;
a harvest celebration that generates enthusiastic spirit and regenerates our sense of Community.
The Pumpkin Festival Committee meets the 1st Tuesday of the month starting in March at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall located at
11111 Wayne Road, Romulus in Council Chambers.
If you are interested in joining the committee please feel free to attend these meetings.
