Punkin Chunkin

Countdown to chunk!

2014-10-24 8:00:00 GMT-05:00


“I can throw my pumpkin farther than you.” What started as a challenge in 1986 has turned into an epic, world-class competition drawing hurlers and mega crowds from miles around. Welcome to the 2011 Punkin Chunkin. Let the pumpkins fly!

For three days, engineers, both serious and home grown, bring their huge contraptions and give it all they’ve got to chunk their 8- to 10-pound pumpkin as far as it can go.

Adult tickets are $10 per person per day. Parking is included in the ticket fee; if you are towing a trailer or have an oversize vehicle, there will be an additional charge on site.

Children under 10 are admitted free of charge.

Pets are NOT ALLOWED at the Chunk for safety and health reasons. Please leave your pet at home. Anyone found with a pet on the grounds will be asked to leave without refund of ticket(s).

Avoid the lines at Punkin Chunkin and take advantage of advance online ticketing below!

Be sure to print the ticket that will be emailed to you. Bring that ticket to the event for entry.

A share of the proceeds from our annual Punkin Chunkin event in November is earmarked for charitable giving. We are proud of our relationship with these vital nonprofits and the work they do to make life better for those in need.
