With the nearly 100-degree heat in the rear-view mirror, it is time to focus on Fall and with that comes one of the oldest festivals in the metro area. The Pumpkin Harvest Festival will be held at Four Mile Historic Park Saturday, October 5, 2019, and Sunday, October 6, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Fall into some old-fashioned fun during the annual Pumpkin Harvest Festival, a longtime Denver favorite reimagined for 2019. Celebrate all things autumn featuring live music, food trucks, pioneer games, and a pumpkin patch. New this year, 98.5 KYGO will be live onsite Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. “We feel that KYGO is a good fit and will add to the atmosphere,” said Jennifer LaGraff, Executive Director of Four Mile Historic Park.
The Greater Glendale Chamber of Commerce is proud to sponsor the Face Painting booth this year while the City of Glendale is sponsoring the Pumpkin Valet Tractor Rides. “The continued partnership with Four Mile Park makes sense for our Chamber,” said Jeff Allen, Chamber COO. “We value the rich history of the park and we believe having our branding in front of thousands of people over the weekend is a good investment.”
The park expects anywhere from 6,000 to 8,000 people to walk through the turnstiles over the weekend. New this year, activities will be included with an admission price of $10 for adults, $5 for kids, $6 for military and seniors, and kids under 2 and members of the park are free. In the past, the park charged for each activity with a traditional ticket system.
The Pumpkin Harvest activities included with admission are the aforementioned face painting and tractor rides along with pioneer games, live music, photo booth, tours of the Four Mile House, cupcake walk, summer kitchen demonstrations, blacksmith demonstrations, domestic arts demonstrations, and crafts — cornhusk dolls and scarecrows (while supplies last, limited quantities available).
Pumpkin Harvest activities available for purchase are pumpkins sold by the pound from the Four Mile Historic Park pumpkin patch, food trucks including Allegra’s Pizza, Em’s Ice Cream, Devil Dogs, Rocky Mountain Snowflakes and The Original by Greeks.
Also, a full bar will be available featuring Comrade Brewing beer and other fall inspired beverages.
Parking will be available in the general parking lot (4846 E. Exposition), as well as the corner of Cherry and Exposition, and street parking along Exposition and Forest.
Live music will entertain the crowd courtesy of Miner Pickers, Greg Schochet Duo and Follow the Fox Band. For more information and a schedule, visit www.fourmilepark.org.
