Is there parking at Pumpkin Festival?

There is plenty of free parking. The sheriff’s department will direct you to either the north or south parking lot/gate upon your arrival. Both gates provide access to the festival.

Because of the volume of cars and visitors coming into and leaving our Chatfield Farms site during our events, we are not equipped to have a separate lane or drop-off/pick-up area for rideshare vehicles. 

What should I wear to Pumpkin Festival?

  • Wear good walking shoes and appropriate clothing. The weather can change very quickly at Chatfield Farms.
  • Please remember to bring a backpack or heavy-duty stroller for smaller children.
