The Milford Pumpkin Festival- 30 Years of Great Family Fun!

Each Fall, Milford’s Pumpkin Festival draws tens of thousands of visitors to the town’s downtown. During this event, visitors experience Milford at its finest. Participants engage in a wide range of fun activities designed for all ages, but they also witness the community spirit of local volunteers, the support from local businesses, and the important role the downtown area plays in our community.

Purpose of the Event

Special events like the Pumpkin Festival provide visibility for the Town of Milford and help foster civic pride and a positive image of the community.

Over the years, the award-winning Milford Pumpkin Festival has become one of the most highly anticipated Fall festivals in New England. Attendance in 2018 was estimated to be upwards of 47,000 over the three days of the event.
