We have a perfect venue for The Nanaimo Pumpkin Festival this year; Shady Mile Farm Market. Shady Mile Farm Market is Island famous for its refreshments, fresh produce, unique products, friendly staff, garden plants, and petting farm.

The Pumpkin Festival’s main event is a huge pumpkin weigh off contest. We hope to attract hundreds of Atlantic Giant Pumpkin growers and their families to our beautiful city of Nanaimo to weigh in their giant pumpkins.
