BOOTS & BLING: CELEBRATING 40 YEARS OF KIDSPACE

Join us for the 24th annual Pumpkin Festival!
Saturday, October 27 & Sunday, October 28, 2017
9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Circle of Friends started Pumpkin Festival in 1994 as a safe alternative to trick-or-treating for local children. It has grown into a not-to-be-missed, two-day festival in Brookside Park.

Attendees enjoy activities like:
BOUNCERS  ·  CRAFTS ·  FESTIVAL GAMES  ·  FREE PERFORMANCES  ·  PETTING ZOO  ·  PONY RIDES ·  PUMPKIN PATCH

Featuring food from:
IN N OUT ·  ROBIN’S BBQ · LOS TACOS · TERI & YAKI ·  KONA ICE ·  JONES COFFEE ·  YOGURTLAND ·  MAMA MUSUBI

Each year, Circle of Friends sponsors the attendance of Very Important Pumpkins (VIPs). VIPs are children from underserved communities who would otherwise not be able to attend the festival. Each VIP receives tickets and vouchers that can be used for activities and food at the festival, as well as a free admission pass to return to Kidspace Children's Museum. 

In 2017, Circle of Friends sponsored a record 500 VIPs.
This year, we hope to sponsor 550.

Please join us in supporting Pumpkin Festival, our VIPs, and the Kidspace For All program by becoming a Patron today!


ALL PROCEEDS benefit Kidspace Children’s Museum’s Kidspace For All programs.
