Our 22nd Annual Pumpkin Festival was a huge success!!  Thank you to all those who attended and supported our festival, we couldn’t have done it without you!!  The planning will soon be underway for our next annual Pumpkin Festival, which will be held September 18th & 19th 2020 and will take place in the Romulus Historical Park located 11147 Hunt Street, Romulus, MI 48174.  If you have any questions please call the Pumpkin Festival hotline at (734) 955-4577.  

The Pumpkin Festival Committee was established in 1996 and the first Festival was held on September 19th and 20th, 1997. The annual Pumpkin Festival is a two day event that starts on the third Friday in September; our festival begins with a night parade where everything is lighted from bicycles to cement trucks.  Thousands of people line Goddard Road to wait for the fun.  Our street festival offers wonderful music, food, crafts and games for all ages.  You can enter a pumpkin rolling, pumpkin pie eating or a pumpkin seed-spitting contest.  Visit or enter our Classic Car Show, our classic Tractor Show or just relax and listen to music.  Our Downtown Festival is a celebration of friends and family; a harvest celebration that generates enthusiastic spirit and regenerates our sense of Community.   

The Pumpkin Festival Committee meets the 1st Tuesday of the month starting in March at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall located at 11111 Wayne Road, Romulus in Council Chambers if you are interested in joining the committee please feel free to attend these meetings. 


The Safety and Health of our community, employees, patrons, vendors and volunteers is our number one priority.  With the restrictions currently in place from Governor Whitmer’s MI Stay Safe Start Plan we have postponed our events, however with anticipation of things quickly changing we are continuing to be proactive in our planning so that once the restrictions are lifted we are able to announce the event dates.

Planning for the 23rd Annual Romulus DDA Pumpkin Festival is in process
