Pumpkin Festival

Crisp air and golden hues welcome the glory of autumn — along with exciting preparations for the annual Pumpkin Festival at Nelahozeves Castle.

On Saturday, October 17, capture the best of the season with a full day of fun activities for children and adults alike. Of course, pumpkins of all shapes, colors and sizes will be featured, waiting to be carved and decorated. Enjoy theater performances or test your competitive and artistic skills in various competitions and artistic workshops. Explore an array of arts and crafts stands selling handmade products or sample delicious refreshments (many of which include pumpkin).

The festival will take place outdoors and strictly follows all rules and guidelines from the Czech Ministry of Health.
