Launching an Event in the Age of COVID

We’ve been planning the Zanesville Pumpkin Auction for some time and are so excited to share it with you.

We’re doing out best to follow the state’s mandates while still respecting your freedom. We’ve scaled this event down from our original plans, but are still excited to serve our local community.

This year we’ll offer pumpkins for sale pay-as-you-can. That’s right, you name your own price! No offer is too low or too high.

We’ll also offer a highest-and-best silent auction. Simply write your highest and best offer on a slip of paper for the gift basket you’re interested in, and then you can go home. (Or we can write it down for you for a completely contactless experience.) Whoever places the highest bid wins! We’ll call you to arrange pickup or delivery of the item.

In future years, we’ll have a live auction which incorporates donated pumpkins and gift baskets. We’ll also incorporate live music and food trucks, and make it a real festival.

This year, we’ll start small and offer pumpkins from local farmers. This is a great way to get out, support your local community, and engage with the season.

Thank you for supporting the Zanesville Pumpkin Auction!
