Now in our 9th year….

the Pumpkin Pageant started as one of Friends of Fort Point Channel’s community wide events. This year on October 27th 2019 we will celebrate our 15th year of the Pumpkin Pageant.

If interested in participating in the PUMPKIN COMPETITION (businesses only) please e-mail us to register ( You (and/or) your company will receive a complimentary pumpkin from the Friends of Fort Point Channel on October 21st. In that time, it is your job to create the silliest, scariest, and most creative pumpkin you can think of. The pumpkins will be displayed for voting twice. Once on Friday, October 25th out on the Waterfront Plaza owned by Atlantic Wharf and once on the day of our main event- October 27th. The 25th offers an opportunity for our work force to come out, participate and vote!

On October 27th we will celebrate and host our PUMPKIN PAGEANT. This event is FREE* to attend. We do recommend you RSVP here.

We’ll celebrate with….

  • Pumpkin Carving for kids

  • Face Painting

  • Dog Costume Parade*

  • Local Bites: Frozen Custard, Chips & Salsa, Popcorn, Cookies etc.

  • DJ Magic Mic

  • Beer and Wine**

    We will announce 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes for our Dog Costume Parade and our Pumpkins Contestants. Don’t forget- it’s game day so come in your favorite Patriot’s outfit as good luck for the evening game (not that we need it)!

Come celebrate the fall season with us!
