Sinkland Farms Pumpkin Festival
The Pumpkin Festival is known as “a family tradition” and offers many family-friendly attractions for the young and young at heart, including hayrides to the pumpkin fields to pick your own “great pumpkin,” a brain-twisting corn maze, farmyard animals and fantastic live music on two great stages.
Other attractions include local arts and crafts on display and sale, performances by local dance troupes, the annual exhibition of Team Carbo and the Onager (a world champion trebouchet for pumpkin hurling) and surprise visits by the incredible, 12-foot-tall iron HokieTRON.
There will be even more special features and attractions every weekend, all included with admission, such as performances by the Virginia Tech and Radford University Dance Clubs, roving musicians and A Capella singing groups. The Southwest Virginia Birds of Prey will provide a special presentation. Kids run wild (literally) in the Kidz Zone (with supervision, of course). The New River Valley Cruisers will be cruising in during the season. Also, for an additional fee, there are pony carts, pony rides, and horseback trail rides.
Sinkland’s home style Kettle Korn is not to be missed and you can also sample delicious home baked goods or cool down with traditional, scrumptious hand-dipped ice cream.
You will find “best in class” quality pumpkins and squash in many varieties, shapes, sizes and colors grown in our fields, ready for picking for fall decorating and Halloween lanterns. The autumn season brings special prices for all our pumpkins. Plus, we will have some extraordinary sizes and varieties picked for sale. Hay and straw bales, corn shocks and large colorful mums are also available to create your spectacular seasonal display.
