Pumpkin Fest 2018

Pumpkin Fest 2018: October 13

About Pumpkin Fest
We set aside a Saturday every fall since 2004 to celebrate the harvest at Wesleyan's Long Lane Farm. Long Lane Farm is an organic student-run farm that supplies high-quality organic food to local residents of the Middletown area as well as to food pantries and soup kitchens.  Pumpkin Fest provides an opportunity for Wesleyan and Middletown community members to learn about local organic farming and the politics of food, while enjoying an afternoon on the farm with a bake sale, organic produce, locally produced honey, face and pumpkin painting, music by local bands and, of course, pumpkins.  Pumpkin Fest is preceded by a keynote address, usually on the Thursday or Friday nights before the festival itself.
