What began in 1994 as a small harvest celebration is now Elk Grove’s largest family festival and attracts an estimated 50,000 guests each year. The Elk Grove Giant Pumpkin Festival is always held during the first weekend in October. It is hosted by the Cosumnes Community Services District (CSD) Parks and Recreation Department in partnership with many sponsors. A portion of festival proceeds benefit local youth and service organizations.
