Posted

The Middletown Home will once again host its No. 1 fundraiser of the year, Pumpkin Fest 2019, on the campus of the Middletown Home at 999 West Harrisburg Pike, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday Sept. 15.

It will feature four well-known bands on stage. The Pentagon Band will open the festivities at 10 a.m., followed by No Last Call, Erin Cruise and Cruise Control Band, with the grand finale featuring the River City Big Band from 4  to 6 p.m.

The venue will include an old-fashioned chicken barbecue in partnership with Lower Swatara Fire Department; a Pumpkin Fest Beer Garden sponsored by Tattered Flag Brewery & Still Works offering a “Special Edition Pumpkin Fest Ale” and bratwurst; and wine tasting sponsored by Olivero’s Vineyard.

More than 150 local and regional artisans and vendors from Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia will be on hand, along with the “Pumpkin Chunkin Contest,” Caricatures by Neillustrations, face painting, barrel train and hayrides, build-your-own scarecrows, pumpkin painting, and a Pumpkin Fest Raffle Extravaganza including a new car.

Raffle tickets to win the car are on sale at The Middletown Home. Supplies are limited.

Last year, Pumpkin Fest welcomed more than 12,000 attendees from central Pennsylvania. An even larger turnout is expected this year, according to organizers.

The Middletown Home is a nonprofit 501(c)(3), with 100 percent of proceeds furthering its charitable mission of providing care and services for residents who have exhausted their financial resources, according to a press release.
