The Quirky North Carolina Town That Transforms Into A Pumpkin Wonderland Every Fall

Pull out your best orange sweater and prepare to celebrate all things pumpkin-related at the annual PumpkinFest taking place in the small town of Franklin (population: approximately 3,800) in a few short weeks. For one day only, the tiny town transforms into a pumpkin wonderland each fall with a festival that’s like a gateway to Halloween and Thanksgiving, all in one.

PumpkinFest transforms Franklin, North Carolina into a pumpkin wonderland each year on the third Saturday in October. This year’s event takes place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on October 19, 2019. For more information and a complete schedule of events, see the official website. You can also follow the Facebook page here!
