We’re Back, we’re Big, we’re hoping we can gather as we always have…Event Details Coming Soon!

Mother nature’s most
Vivacious, Outrageous, Humongous fruits…in one Mega-monstrosity on the north shore.

The City’s most spellbinding spectacle of colorfully colossal cucurbits, and signature “family fall festival” is set to return, Oct. 16–17, to its welcoming home along the North Shore Riverwalk!

By then, we’re hoping all things “pandemic” are forever gone…but don’t fret—if not, we will bring back the highly acclaimed Pittsburgh Monster Pumpkins “Pop-Up” lit-at-night exhibit of these miraculous fruits as staged in 2020. Either way, we promise one memorable and magical moment in time, made possible by the the world-famous ATLANTIC GIANTS—the most prodigious breed of pumpkins on the planet—with record weights well over 2,500 pounds! Stay tuned, stay positive, stay in touch right here.

2-Minute Pop-Up
Because of the pandemic-forced crowd gathering restrictions in 2020, the Pittsburgh Monster Pumpkins Festival became a massive, lit-at-night, drive-by only Pop-Up exhibit—setting a record for most pounds of pumpkin, 22,000, carved in one continual scene.

Mark your calendar now, Saturday Oct. 16—17, for the “Greatest Growth on Earth” pumpkins so big, so heavy and so fascinating to behold you’ll be doing double takes all day long.

 Unbelievable Giant drops

2020 WTAE Project Bundle-Up Pumpkin Drop—A whopping nearly 2,000 pound pumpkin gets dropped from almost 130 feet high in one sensational splash for charity.

It’s Still ALL FREE…You’ve Got to SEED It, To Believe It!
