Daytime Campfire Sites

Host a daytime group at one of our Pumpkin Festival Campfire Sites!


Bring your birthday party, employee event, children’s play group, family get-together, Scout troop, Church group, you name it! Campfire Sites are a great place to gather, located in the Farm Park close to all the Festival activities!


All sites are reserved and paid for in advance. A credit card is required to reserve and will be charged when you make a reservation.

Each Campfire Site accommodates a maximum of 30 people. For safety and comfort we must strictly adhere to the 30 person maximum per Site.  If your group is larger than 30 people you may select 2 Campfire Sites when making your reservation.  A maximum of two Campfire Site reservations may be made for any group. 



Admission to Pumpkin Festival is not included with your Campfire Site reservation and must be purchased separately for each guest.  Admission is $15/person, everyone 2 years of age and older.

All guests, including hosts/hostesses and guests of honor must pay Pumpkin Festival admission.  After you book your Campfire Site, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to pre-purchase Festival tickets for you and your guests.  You will receive access to tickets at the time of your reservation even if the time slot is sold out for the general public.  You may purchase tickets for your guests if you choose and email them ahead of your party. 


2 time slots available:
10:00 am – 1:00 pm
2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

You are welcome to enjoy the Festival activities before or after your reservation time but you must clear your site after 3 hours.  Please take into account your set-up and clean up time when making arrangements with your guests.
