Grover Pumpkin Festival

The night of the event, we will be lighting a wall of approximately 700 jack-o'-lanterns from our community and local schools as a grand finale to welcome our festival to Cleveland County and North Carolina.

The event is expected to attract over 6,000 spectators who will enjoy live music, a corn maze, hay rides, great food, lots of games and activities all day and of course, pumpkin carving. A costume contest and pie eating contest will add to the festive atmosphere, along with a not-so-haunted mansion and a safe Trick or Treating experience for the kids.

2014 Festival Postponed

Due to budgetary cuts the Town of Grover has decided not to host the 2014 Grover Pumpkin Festival. This does not mean that the Grover Pumpkin Festival will disappear from the event calendar. Our plan is to postpone it until October 24, 2015 as we search for a new primary host sponsor. We look forward to seeing you all in 2015!

If you know of a non-profit or company that would be interested in being the primary host sponsor for this event please contact us at 704-300-2895 or
