Pumpkin Festival 12.10.2019


We cordially invite you to this year’s Pumpkin Festival at Nelahozeves Castle taking place Saturday, October 12th. We have prepared a remarkable set of activities to celebrate the start of Autumn and changing of the leaves. Kids can look forward to a series of theatrical performances, competitions, and activities in our magical garden and even test their cunning in our challenging maze. Young wizards can also hone their flying skills on the Quidditch pitch as participants fly through our obstacle course on handmade broomsticks, just like Harry Potter! In the castle courtyard and grounds, you’ll be able to find various crafts stands and activities as well as incredible food from a variety of local chefs. Don’t miss out on this ideal family friendly opportunity to celebrate our famous Pumpkin Day!
