Cortland, NY 13045
The 2021 Great Cortland Pumpkinfest has been canceled due to COVID-19 precautions, with the aim to return in 2022.
A note from the Great Cortland Pumpkinfest committee:
Every year, we look forward to celebrating the harvest season and the wonderful talents of our community. However, given the continued concerns surrounding COVID-19 and public health, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Great Cortland Pumpkinfest, with the goal to hold the festival again in 2022.
We do not cancel the festival lightly. But, our commitment is to the health and safety of crafters, vendors, guests, and volunteers, and canceling this year with the hope that 2022 allows us to gather again safely is the best solution to the problem presented by the coronavirus.
We thank you for your continued support of the Great Cortland Pumpkinfest. Please stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you in 2022.
With best regards,
The Great Cortland Pumpkinfest Committee
First held in 1996, the Great Cortland Pumpkinfest is a celebration of the prolific bounties of the harvest season. It is held in historic Courthouse Park in Cortland, New York, the Crown City of Central New York.
The Great Cortland Pumpkinfest is held the first weekend of October every year. Over the course of the weekend, hundreds of festival goers come to enjoy festival food, take hay rides, shop locally-made crafts, and, of course, get the first pumpkins of the season.
