Pumpkin Festival | 10/22-24


Get your fall pumpkin fix and join Destination GN and The Ridge Hotel with a festive Friday Oktoberfest bier tasting followed by live music, a weekend-long biergarten, and a Saturday pumpkin celebration complete with carving contest, live music, and circling ‘round the fire rings while noshing on pumpkin donuts and kettle corn. Just five minutes down the road, Pearce Farms hosts a 12-acre corn maze, pumpkin picking, a hale bale climbing tower, and a delightfully overwhelming selection of decorative gourds.

The GN festival series is an integral part of the Member calendar. Please keep in mind that while the resort incorporates lodging guests into our festivals, we always aim to provide our valued Members an elevated experience.
