Each Fall, Milford’s Pumpkin Festival draws tens of thousands of visitors to the town’s downtown. During this event, visitors experience Milford at its finest. Participants engage in a wide range of fun activities designed for all ages, but they also witness the community spirit of local volunteers, the support from local businesses, and the important role the downtown area plays in our community.
Traditionally, this 3-day Festival takes place on Columbus Day Weekend and occurs in Downtown Milford on the Oval, the Community House Lawn, Emerson Park and South and Middle Streets, Milford Town Hall and the Amato Family Performing Art Center on Mont Vernon Street.
