Read More About the Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival

The Art & Pumpkin Festival is held each year in October on the historic Main Street in Half Moon Bay, California. The festival began in 1971, when the newly formed Main Street Beautification Committee realized the area’s abundance of pumpkin patches and decided to organize an old-fashioned festival in the downtown area for visitors who had come to pick Halloween pumpkins. In the festival’s first year, only one local non-profit group opted to present food, and now dozens of non-profit groups operate food and game booths each year on the festival weekend. Proceeds from the Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival are used for beautifying the downtown area and they also contribute to civic causes.

The Art & Pumpkin Festival is a family-friendly event that traditionally takes place on the weekend after Columbus Day and offers something for everyone. The Art & Pumpkin Festival offers lots of fun, entertainment, and activities for all ages. With attendees from all over the West Coast and beyond, the festival celebrates the strong agricultural roots of San Mateo County. The festival features tasty food, live music, pumpkin carving, kids’ activities, contests, arts & crafts, pumpkin parade, pumpkin pies, pumpkin weigh-offs, and more. In 2024, the two-day Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival will be held on Saturday, October 19 and Sunday, October 20.
