The 2018 Damariscotta Pumpkinfest & Regatta

All Day, Sep 29, 2018

The event combines parades, displays, contests, performances, and celebrations of all things pumpkin throughout the Twin Villages of Newcastle and Damariscotta. Thousands of visitors from North America and elsewhere around the globe flock to the area to savor the sights, tastes, and sounds of what’s become one of New England’s premier fall family festivals. A week of amazing activities follows, culminating in some of the most anticipated and memorable highlights of Columbus Day Weekend in Maine, including giant pumpkin carving/decorating, pumpkinboat building, buskers and street performers and concerts, the parade downtown, the not-to-be-missed two-day Pumpkin Catapult & Giant Pumpkin Slingshot Fun, a pumpkin derby, pie eating and dessert contests, as well as the 180-foot Giant Pumpkin Drop and Kids Pumpkin Hunt, and the incredible Pumpkin Regatta in Damariscotta Harbor. The Kids Zone has moved to a larger site at the Damariscotta River Association property on Maine Street near McDonald’s and across from Hammond Lumber Company.
