Calabasas Pumpkin Festival Celebrates the Season and City

Once again, the Calabasas Pumpkin Festival drew thousands of people of all ages over the weekend. For over 40 years, this two-day festival has brought the community together for fun and excitement all themed around everyone’s favorite orange gourd.

Presented by the City of Calabasas and the Calabasas Chamber of Commerce, the event was situated along Lost Hills Road and at the Juan Bautista de Anza Park.

“The Pumpkin Festival is now our premier event, blending themes involving the Old West, the fall harvesting season and, of course, Halloween,” said Mayor James Bozajian. “Because the word ‘Calabasas’ is derived from the Spanish word for ‘pumpkin,’ the Pumpkin Festival is an especially fitting tribute to the city’s heritage.”

The festivities included live music, marketplace vendors, delicious food and pumpkin treats, pumpkin-themed arts & crafts, contests, games and more.
