C-K AutumnFest, "The Ultimate Pumpkin Experience"
The C-K AutumnFest takes place the last weekend in October in the two quaint communities of Ceredo and Kenova. The centerpiece of the festival is the famous Pumpkin House, which has become one of the favorite tourist attractions of West Virginia. In 1978, the Pumpkin House began with only 5 pumpkins carved for a Halloween display. Since then, the number of hand-carved pumpkins has grown to 3,000. Does a house with 3,000 hand-carved pumpkins attract attention? You bet! Each year Ceredo and Kenova welcome nearly 30,000 visitors to the Pumpkin House. Over the years we have watched children that have visited the Pumpkin House grow to have children of their own that they now bring to see the display. This sense of tradition and community inspired the creation of the C-K AutumnFest, which is on the fast track to becoming one of the favorite West Virginia fall festivals.
As one of the newest West Virginia festivals, we strive to make this a family event. There will be an old-fashioned bake-off with some of the best bakers in the area competing. Get an early start on your holiday shopping with the beautiful hand-made items offered at our arts and crafts show. Be sure to take advantage of the food vendors located at the Pumpkin House on Beech Street in Kenova. You can bet you won’t have to look hard to find some fresh-baked pumpkin bread! Please check our activities page to see all the fun things we have planned.
It is a community-wide celebration you won’t want to miss! It is our hope that the C-K AutumnFest will become a part of your family’s traditions. We look forward to seeing you in October.
