Pumpkins & Pippins Fall Festival

Pumpkins & Pippins Fall Festival

Saturday October 15th, 2022 * 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Support The Institute by bringing your family to a fall celebration of Pumpkins & Pippins!
Our second annual Pumpkins and Pippins fall festival will be held at Pine Hill Recreation Area, Waynesboro.
12684 Mentzer Gap Rd. Waynesboro, PA 
Rain location is the Waynesboro Area Middle School.
A fundraiser for The Institute, the festival includes a full slate of activities and fun for all ages, including a ‘kid zone’ with yard games, a StoryWalk® hike & activity, a photo stand and more.
Pony rides for kids from Serendipity Horse Meadows Farm provide a fun, memorable experience during the festival.
In addition, craft vendors offer a variety of wares.
“We also have a pie walk, a pumpkin patch, and a decorated pumpkin contest,” said Jessica Watson, the Institute’s assistant director and event organizer. “We invite everyone to support The Institute by bringing your family to a fall celebration of Pumpkins & Pippins.”
A star attraction is the ever-popular trebuchet pumpkin launcher, which will run throughout the day sending pumpkins flying through the sky.
Trebuchets are giant catapult devices that originated in medieval times.
“The Institute’s trebuchet was built by volunteers who researched the devices thoroughly to create an authentic working model,” Watson said. “Our trebuchet hurls pumpkins, and it’s great fun to watch how far they fly.”
For the DECORATED PUMPKIN CONTEST (click here for details!), pumpkins may be painted or carved—or both.
Contest entry is free.
Votes from those in attendance determine the winner, who receives a $100 prize.
Live music is a festival mainstay.
The bluegrass band, Marv Ashby and High Octane, will be the featured entertainment.
Based in Berkeley Springs, W.Va., the band is known for dynamic traditional and contemporary bluegrass.
Those attending can buy lunch from Summer Creek BBQ food truck.
A bake sale offers a variety of homemade goodies for dessert.
Pumpkins, apples and cider will be available for purchase.
Admission is $10 per car, cash only.
