We are now an incorporated society

The Great Pumpkin Carnival is pleased to announce it is now an incorporated society.


Over the years, the carnival has grown to become one of the best pumpkin events in the country and it became apparent that we needed to formalise it more to allow it to continue and grow as its own entity and to future proof it for the people who make the carnival the great event it is year after year.

A heartfelt thanks goes out to The Friends of Hamilton Gardens who without their help and support over the years, from advice, help with funding, managing money and providing resources the carnival would not be what it is today.

The Great Pumpkin Carnival Incorporated Society:

The society has been set up to run the great pumpkin carnival every year, it’s members are made up from a wide range of people, from growers to supporters, from Hamilton and further afield.

How you can help:

We are always keen to have new members join the society, bring their ideas and expertise to the group, please get in touch if you would like to become a member.

Our first AGM for the society is for August 2016, with more details coming out closer to the time.

There are many areas we are always on the lookout for help with the carnival, these include:

  • Sponsorship
  • Prizes
  • Manpower on the day
  • Equipment

If you can help out with any of those, or know someone that might be keen to help out in any way please get in touch.

Also make sure to come along for a great family day out on the 3rd of April, Hamilton Gardens and spread the word amongst family and friends, and remember you don’t need to have grown a pumpkin to enter some of the great categories we have.
