The Goomeri Pumpkin Festival is a fantastic family event which is held each year on the last Sunday in May.

The Goomeri Pumpkin Festival has continued to grow each year since 1997, to the extent where it has received state, national and international recognition. The Great Australian Pumpkin Roll™ has continued to grow and, in 2009, there were over 600 Pumpkin Rollers sending their pumpkins racing, splattering and hurtling down Policeman’s Hill. Policeman’s Hill (named so because the Police Station is at the bottom) has become a tourist attraction in its own right as people come to see where these pumpkins roll.

The festival has expanded over the years to include many more pumpkin based competitions including Pumpkin Bowls, Decorated Pumpkins, Giant Pumpkin competition, Pumpkin Pull, Pumpkin Pageant, Pumpkin Quilt Challenge, Decorated Tea Towel Competition and the Pumpkin Power Shot Put.

Add to these events the many market stalls, the Heritage and Outback Street Parade, whip cracking, Working Dog Displays, horsemanship displays, roving entertainment and great pumpkin food, and you have a family friendly, entry free event for everyone to enjoy.
