The South Lyon Area Pumpkinfest started 30 years ago by the late Dean Sparks. Over the years, the event grew from a craft and antique show to a weekend-long celebration of crafts, music, community, and of course, everyone's favorite fall product; the pumpkin.
In 2009, the Pumpkinfest Committee adopted leadership of festival organization and planning. In 2010, Pumpkinfest became a registered Michigan 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.Â
This year South Lyonâ€™s much anticipated community event celebrates its 30th anniversary. For three decades, The South Lyon Area Pumpkinfest has provided wholesome entertainment for all ages. Come downtown South Lyon Friday, September 26th â€“ Sunday, September 28th to be â€œWelcomed Home.â€Â
