About Cambridge Pumpkin Festival


The Cambridge Pumpkin Festival is a celebration of food and autumn, which creatively encourages us to think about the food we throw away. We also aim to celebrate local and seasonal produce that is grown or made within Cambridgeshire.

The festival normally runs during the autumn half term, with events ranging from cookery workshops and fine dining, to a pop-up farmers’ market and kids’ disco soup.

There are lots of ways of getting involved. In addition to attending the events (many of which are free) and spreading the food waste message, we would love for you to volunteer with us at one or more of the events throughout the festival. Please email info@cambridgesustainablefood.org or visit our volunteer section if you might be interested.

Take a look at our collection of pumpkin recipes, and find out more about food waste and how cutting it down can save you money!

Cambridge Pumpkin Festival is an initiative of Cambridge Sustainable Food, a local network of public, private and community organisations working to promote food that is good for people and good for the environment.
