The Port Dickinson Pumpkin FestiFall will take place at Port Dickinson Park, located at 811 Chenango Street in Binghamton.

After a four-year hiatus, the incredible community event in memory of Giordi DeAngelo, is back! You and your family are invited for a day filled with family-friendly fun, activities, and delicious food in the hidden gem of the village, Port Dickinson Park.

The Port Dickinson Pumpkin FestiFall promises an array of exciting attractions and events for everyone to enjoy. Make sure to participate in the Pumpkin Pie Baking Contest and Pumpkin Dessert Baking Contest for a chance to win cash prizes.

Additionally, there's a special treat for book lovers with the "BOOOOOoook Swap," where you can trade your books for some new reads.

But that's not all! Get ready for raffles, games, face painting, live music, and a wide range of delectable food options to satisfy your taste buds. Explore the craft stalls featuring handmade treasures and unique items from local vendors.

This year, organizers are introducing "Game Sponsors" and "Eager Entrepreneurs." If you're a family, club, or non-profit, or if you have a cause or activity that needs fundraising, reach out to organizers to become a game sponsor. As a game sponsor, you will provide everything needed for the game, including prizes. You will manage the game, sell tickets, and then, you will keep the money for your cause.

The "Eager Entrepreneur" spot allows kids to dip their toes into the world of business in a fun and supervised way. Whether they love crafting and want to sell their creations or offer community services such as lawn mowing, babysitting, dog sitting, snow removal, tech support, and more, this is their chance to network, interact with potential clients, and earn a little money for various needs, from supporting extracurricular activities to fundraising, adopting an animal, or even investing and paying it forward.

If you are interested in participating as a craft vendor, food vendor, game sponsor, eager entrepreneur, or event sponsor, you can email

The Port Dickinson Pumpkin FestiFall will take place rain or shine. However, in the event of flooding, the event will be canceled to ensure the safety and well-being of all attendees.
