Damariscotta Pumpkinfest & Regatta Weigh Off

October 6 @ 7:00 am - 2:00 pm EDT

The official Great Pumpkin Commonwealth (GPC) Weigh-Off is the State of Maine’s largest weigh-off, featuring the jaw-dropping total purse of $10,000. An additional bonus of $1,000 will be awarded for a New State Record pumpkin which is grown by a Maine grower.

The GPC Weigh-Off is always held on the Sunday BEFORE Pumpkinfest weekend, in order to gather the pumpkins for the holiday weekend’s festival.

Pumpkin drop-off for the GPC-sanctioned weigh-off is on Sunday Oct 6th between the hours of 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. and the weigh-off begins promptly at 10 a.m.

Would like to see your Giant Pumpkin featured in one of our many events? Join us Sunday October 6th, win a great cash prize and then see your Pumpkin become part of the festival! Happy growing
