Sycamore Pumpkin Festival

Wednesday, October 24, 2018 - Sunday, October 28, 2018

2018 is the 57th Annual Sycamore Pumpkin Festival.   What started out as an idea by Wally Thurow in 1956 to offer something creative for the students of Sycamore, has grown from a neighborhood display on his front yard into the towns biggest city-wide event beginning on Wednesday with the Opening Ceremony and cake cutting.  The festival begins with over 1000 entries in the Lions Decorated Pumpkin Display, 2 carnivals, 2 large indoor craft shows, many non-profit vendors, and culminating with an hour and a half long parade on Sunday.

The 2018 theme is: A Pumpkin Carnival
