Zanesville Pumpkin Auction

Join us on October 3rd from 1 to 4 p.m. for the Zanesville Pumpkin Auction. This event is FREE and open to all.

Come out and get a variety of pumpkins and fall décor, donated by local farmers, available pay-as-you-can. That’s right, you name your own price! No offer is too low (or too high!).

Join us in front of the School of Kingdom Writers building at 35 S. 4th St. in downtown Zanesville, Ohio. Come early – these pumpkins might not last long!

We’ll also have a silent auction featuring gift cards from Wally’s Pizza, Color Pallet Salon, and other local businesses! Find the silent auction here and place a bid online.

All of the proceeds will benefit the School of Kingdom Writers building fund, and will be used to restore the former Montgomery Ward department store at 35 S. 4th St. in downtown Zanesville, Ohio.

Thank you to Curly Girl Farm, Spacious Hill Farm, and other local farmers for donating pumpkins and fall décor! Watch the news feed for other farms as they agree to donate for this event.
