2021 Pumpkin Minifest Sidelined

Time for long, quiet walks on the beach.

For the second year in a row the world-famous Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival will not be allowed to take place after the Half Moon Bay City Council voted unanimously to deny organizers the required special event permit for this year’s carefully planned, months-in-the-works, single day HMB Pumpkin Minifest 49.5 that had been slated to bring back the uniquely joyous, feel-good Pumpkin Fest vibe to Main Street on October 16.

Heartbreak beyond words x two now for our non-profits, our local artists and musicians, our suppliers, vendors and sponsors, local businesses and the entire Coastside community and festival fans everywhere.

The Safeway World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off will go on as planned on Monday, Oct. 11 on the IDES Grounds.
