The Greatest Free Show on Earth

By Nanisa Osborn

You are invited to the “Greatest Free Show on Earth,” the 115th Circleville Pumpkin Show, which will take place Wednesday through Saturday, October 19-22, 2022. Admission is FREE. The Circleville Pumpkin Show is a festival that takes place each year on the downtown streets in Circleville Ohio just 30 miles south of Columbus.

The Pumpkin Show is dedicated to everything pumpkin and includes food booths selling all types of pumpkin delicacies including pumpkin pie and pumpkin donuts, as well as pumpkin burgers, pumpkin pizza, pumpkin chili, pumpkin cream puffs, and many other pumpkin goodies.

Giant pumpkin growers compete each year to see who can grow the largest pumpkin and in 2021 Steven Thornhill’s giant weighed 1850.5 pounds. While his pumpkin was the largest, there were 36 other giant pumpkins entered. The Giant Pumpkin Weigh-In starts at 9:15 am on Wednesday, October 19.

The Circleville Pumpkin Show includes displays of locally grown pumpkins and squash, as well as fruits and vegetables, baked goods, canned goods and honey, a flower show, a show of home arts and crafts, and a Fine Art Show.

There are 7 parades over the 4-day show each with a different theme, one at 3:30 pm and another at 8 pm each day except Saturday which has only an 8 pm parade. Amusement Rides are presented by Poor Jack Amusements with something for “kids” of all ages. There are approximately 240 vendors with food, retail, and craft items for sale. Live entertainment takes place each day on the Pumpkin Show Park stage and includes a pumpkin pie eating contest for both kids and adults.

So, mark your calendar and come join us for the Circleville Pumpkin Show starting each year on the third Wednesday in October. For more information visit our website at www.pumpkinshow.com
