Killer Pumpkin Fest Returns For 2 Days – Saturday & Sunday

2013 KillerPumpkinFest

Returning this Saturday and Sunday to Brewpublic’s Killer Beer Week is the highly successful Killer Pumpkin Fest. One of the most successful events during Brewpublic’s Killer Beer Week returns this year bigger, badder and better this year. With over 32 Pumpkin Beers this is one event you do not want to miss this Saturday & Sunday October 19-20, 2013.

Now in it’s third year, The Green Dragon takes to the streets to make their Killer Pumpkin Festival even more killer than ever! Closing down 9th Ave for this year we’ve partnered with Camp Ukandu, a non-profit for children diagnosed with cancer, and are moving to the street this year as part of a two day festival. One of the biggest pumpkin festivals in the region (tip of the hat to Elysian Brewing), here’s a look at what we have going on in 2013:

  • 30+ Craft Beers made with Pumpkins and other Gourds.
  • Special Pumpkin Menu
  • Live music and vendors in the street from 11AM – 5PM
  • The Elysian Pumpkin Roadshow will be on hand to tap a 85 lb. pumpkin on Sunday at 3pm!
  • And of course, Pumpkin smashing all weekend.
