The Theme for this year was submitted by Harper Freiberg from North Grove Elementary. It is:
“Old Fashioned Pumpkin Festival”
The Sycamore Pumpkin Festival Committee is excited to be working on the 60th Annual Pumpkin Festival and to return to an event unaffected by Covid19.
Vendor Applications for DeKalb County Non-Profit Groups are now available on the Vendor Page. Parade Applications should be available by July, provided we continue to move from the bridge phase into full re-opening as expected.
What started out as an idea by Wally Thurow in 1956 to offer something creative for the students of Sycamore, has grown from a neighborhood display on his front yard into the towns biggest city wide event beginning on Wednesday with the Opening Ceremony and cake cutting. The festival has over 1000 entries in the Lions Decorated Pumpkin Display, 2 carnivals, many non-profit vendors including two indoor craft shows, and it concludes with 90 minute parade on Sunday.
