October 13, 14, & 15, 2017Pony Express PumpkinFest is an annual family arts festival held every year during the second full weekend in October. This free family arts festival celebrates the fall harvest with live entertainment, a children’s costume parade, festival rides, games, storytelling, crafts and food.

Join us for the lighting of the “Great Pumpkin Mountain” on opening night. Thousands of people come to view hundreds of carved, electrically-lit pumpkins come to life with the flip of a switch! It’s also a great outreach opportunity for showcasing the Pony Express National historic site and the Pony Express riders.
