Pumpkin Bucks are allocated based on the following categories:

Shift Volunteers – Volunteers who complete a full food venue or store shift of 3 hours or longer receive a $5 Pumpkin Buck.
Special Volunteers – Volunteers who serve in more difficult roles, including Grillers and Cashiers, and complete a full shift of 3 hours or longer receive $9 in Pumpkin Bucks.
Off Site Chairmen – Chairmen who run events and venues that are not held on the Main Grounds during times when Festival food venues are open receive $9 in Pumpkin Bucks.
On Site Chairmen – Chairmen who run events and venues that are held on the Main Grounds during times when Festival food venues are open receive $9 in Pumpkin Bucks for each meal during which they are volunteering. Maximum amount is $63 in Pumpkin Bucks.
Lead Chairmen - Chairmen who run events and venues on the Main Festival Grounds and are on the grounds for 40 hours or more during the Pumpkin Festival receive a pass allowing for free food and beverages at the Pumpkin Grille and the Sweet Shoppe for themselves and their immediate family members.
