Pumpkins are a major part of the fall season. Eating, decorating, smashing, and even making beer – pumpkins can be used for so many things, it is no wonder they are so fascinating. They also make a great focus for a fall event, as demonstrated by the Rogue Ales & Spirits Killer Pumpkin Festival. If you like pumpkins, enjoy festivals or are interested in trying pumpkin beers, this pumpkin festival is for you!
The Pumpkin Festival
On October 21, from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Rogue Ales & Spirits will be putting on this year’s Killer Pumpkin Festival at 928 SE 9th Ave. in Portland. The event, held in partnership with BREWPUBLIC’s Killer Beer Week, will feature all things pumpkin, including:
- Over 30 pumpkin beers
- Hand planted and hand picked pumpkins from Rogue Farms
- Pumpkin decorating, carving, bowling and smashing
- Snacks from Rogue’s special pumpkin menu
- Pumpkin cocktails
- Pumpkin spiced soda
- Costume contest – for adults, kids and dogs
This event is family-friendly and dog-friendly. The suggested donation is $5 at the door, and all the proceeds will go to CAMP UKANDU.
CAMP UKANDU is a charity that serves children with cancer and their families, providing them with “outrageously fun” camp experiences.
Last year’s Pumpkin Festival attracted a large amount of people, so this year is likely to be popular. Fortunately, the outdoor event can accommodate a lot of attendees, and you do not have to buy tickets early.
Fun for the Whole Family
The Pumpkin Festival is a community event open to the whole family, including your dog. So please feel free to bring all your loved ones, including your furry companion. And if you want to really do it right, dress up in costumes. With separate costume contests for kids, adults and even dogs, you will have multiple chances to win if you all participate.
