Giant Pumpkin Growers from British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest converged on Saturday, October 7, 2023, to enter BC’s Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off Event!
Our gracious host venue sponsor Krause Berry Farms and Estate Winery in Langley, BC, will host our beloved event this year! It’s BC’s Official Great Pumpkin Commonwealth (GPC) and Certified World Recognized Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off Event!!!
Our event hosted in Langley, BC, is the ONLY world recognized giant pumpkin weigh-off event in Western Canada, with the next closest event being hosted in Manitoba.
Contestants will weigh their Gargantuan Gourds, as well as other giant fruits and veggies, in front of a large crowd of enthusiastic spectators, fellow growers and the media!
This is a very well-advertised event that draws nearly all local television and print media covering this amazing story each year. In 2019, our event drew nearly 4,000 people – it was our BIGGEST event ever!!!
