The planning for our 23rd annual Pumpkin Festival is underway, which will be held on September 17th, 18th, 19th, 2021. It will take place at the Romulus Historical Park located at 11147 Hunt Street and downtown Romulus along Goddard Road.

The annual Pumpkin Festival is a three-day event that starts on the third Friday in September. Our festival begins with the Parade of Lights, where everything is aglow, 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. Visit or enter our Classic Car Show, Craft and Vendor Show, or just relax and listen to music. Our Downtown Festival is a celebration of friends and family; a harvest celebration that generates an enthusiastic spirit and regenerates our sense of Community.
