The Cambridge Pumpkin Festival is returning for 20th-28th October 2017 (Autumn half term) with lots of fun and often free events to encourage people to make use of their Halloween pumpkins and think about food waste.

Cambridge Sustainable Food has collaborated with local charities, community groups and businesses to organise over 16 events for the festival. Scrumptious pumpkin specials will also be on offer in a number of local restaurants, cafés and shops.

Highlights will include:

  • Our launch event, Feed the 1000, where we aim to provide meals for over one thousand people, largely using food that would otherwise be wasted – find out more.
  • Kids’ Disco Soup, where we provide both delicious pumpkin soup and some great tunes! This family-friendly event includes a variety of kids’ activities alongside the dance floor – find out more.
  • Our Festival Finale will be the Pop-Up Farmers’ Market, where in partnership with Thirsty we bring you a wide variety of local suppliers and producers, selling the very best of local wares. Alongside this will be live music and kids’ activities – find out more.

These are only a few of the many events taking place this October half term – check out our Events Page for a full list! We hope to see you there…
