Our town hosts two very exciting events in the fall that gather everyone together to celebrate the season. The Giant Pumpkin Weigh Off and Festival takes place every September and features pumpkin growers from around the region competing to see who has grown the largest pumpkin. A recent winner weighed in at over 1,900 pounds! Fall in Love with Ridgefield takes place in October and is a festival that includes haunted hayrides, window painting, and a scarecrow contest. Both events also have special activities for kids, fun games, and delicious fall goodies to taste. For these and many more amazing fall events, view our Events Calendar.
