Windsor Fair Giant Pumpkin Contest

August 25 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EDT

This is an Official GPC Weigh-Off Site. This is a registration-only site so standard GPC Plaques and Ribbons will not be provided.

Fruit will be accepted on the first Sunday of the Fair from 9 AM to 10 AM at the Agricultural Tent.

Fruit will be weighed on the first Sunday of the Fair as they come in.

All entries must remain on exhibit for the duration of Windsor Fair and may be picked up on Labor Day between 6:00 P.M. and 7:00 P.M.

Winner will be the biggest pumpkin or squash by natural weight.

All entries above 100 lbs. except Jack-O-Lanterns must arrive on a pallet for ease of handling for the Windsor Fair personnel.

Competition will consist of two divisions: (a) adult; (b) children – 12 years and under, with three classes in each division:

CLASSES:
1) Giant Pumpkin
2) Giant Squash
3) Old-Fashion Jack-O-Lantern Pumpkin (Field Pumpkin)

*The Largest Giant Pumpkin to date is 1218 lbs.*
*If anyone beats the record they get $500.00*

If a grower wishes to weigh/measure fruit in other GPC categories (long gourd, marrow, bushel gourd, watermelon), we can obtain official weights/measurements but do not have ribbons or prize money. We do NOT have a certified scale to measure tomatoes.

*Note – GPC ribbons/plaques and Howard Dill Award will NOT be provided at this weigh off. This GPC sanctioning is simply to give growers a chance to get official recognition for their fruit, particularly those in Maine who live hours away from the next closest weigh off. Ribbons will be provided by the Windsor Fair for the classes noted above.
