Coming Up: Statesville Pumpkin Fest 2023

Statesville Pumpkin Fest 2023

Oh, my gourd! It’s almost time for the Statesville Pumpkin Fest 2023 in downtown. That means a fun-filled day is coming our way on Saturday, November 4th.

About the Statesville Pumpkin Fest 2023

Get ready to join Downtown Statesville for this annual, free community-wide event! Visitors to the Statesville Pumpkin Fest 2023 can expect an action-packed day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. But that’s not all.

After the festival ends, stick around for the After Party Concert featuring ’80s tribute band Kids in America from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Main Stage. You won’t want to miss this high-energy six-piece band playing all the best hits from the 1980s, including new wave, pop, dance, rock and hair-raising metal.

Live entertainment will be provided by a plethora of local talent on two stages throughout the day. At noon, His & Hers will take to the Main Stage, followed by Groove Machine from 2 to 4 p.m. Meanwhile, at the Community Stage, the entertainment starts at 10 a.m. and doesn’t stop until 3 p.m. 

More about the Statesville Pumpkin Fest

Besides live entertainment, there will be a Classic Car Cruise-In, a Kids’ Zone on East Broad Street and the Corks, Taps and Barrels Garden for grown-ups. For those of you ages 21 and older, quench your thirst on North Center Street with cold beer, a varied selection of wine, specialty craft cocktails and craft beer from Statesville’s own Red Buffalo. 

The kids, however, can play hard at the Kids’ Zone with a $10 all-day wristband, which lets them ride the rides and more as much as they want! You can also buy ride tickets for $1 each. The rides will include several inflatables, like a 20-foot slide, a bounce house, an obstacle course and more. 

So, don’t forget to bring your wallet for activities, food and beverages.
