Don’t miss the oldest and largest festival in Ohio! The Circleville Pumpkin Show will be held from Wednesday, October 17 – Saturday, October 20; it’s always the 3rd Wednesday of October.
There are plenty of family-friendly events going on all week at this free festival including 7 parades, rides, crafts, bands, plus pumpkin-flavored everything! Pumpkin donuts are one of the highlights for many, with over 100,000 sold during the show. Don’t miss the 6 foot pumpkin pie created by Lindsay’s Bakery or the 1000+ lbs pumpkins!
There’s no entry free; it’s “The Greatest Free Show on Earth”!
Circleville is straight down Rt. 23 from Columbus, about halfway between Columbus and Chillicothe.
