The Festival chooses a different theme every year, ‘Rainforest’ is the theme for this year. Sculptures run from small to large, built with pumpkins. Who knew there were so many varieties of pumpkins, but there are over 600 varieties on display at the Festival. The creativity of the artists and details of the sculptures are impressive. We saw a crocodile, a parrot, an elephant, a fork-tongued lizard, a few toads, and much more.
In addition to the fun sculptures, delicious smells waft over the grounds. Food vendors and cafés sell all kinds of pumpkin-based foods, including muffins, fries, ravioli, cakes and cookies. Soup, jams, and even wine made with pumpkin were for sale. This festival is a real celebration of that beautiful gourd, the pumpkin.
Ludwigsburg Pumpkin Festival
The Ludwigsburg Pumpkin Festival is fun for the whole family, and especially for pumpkin lovers. The Palace grounds and gardens alone are outstanding to visit, while the pumpkins are an added bonus of fun. A lovely autumn outing, and we enjoyed some pumpkin soup for dinner.
