Food

The Morton Pumpkin Festival offers a variety of unique food venues to cater to our visitors. The Pumpkin Grille, sponsored by Sam Leman Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge, and the Pumpkin Sweet Shoppe, sponsored by Heartland Bank, are located on the Main Pumpkin Festival Grounds and staffed by local volunteers who are eager to serve delicious, home-made foods made with Libby’s Pumpkin to festival goers. The menus include everything from pumpkin chili, baked beans, and pasta salad to pumpkin ice cream, shakes, cheesecake, cookies, and Libby’s pumpkin pie.

On the north side of Jefferson Street, you will find the newest addition to our food venues, the Pumpkin Sweet Shoppe Express.  Hosted by the Morton Community Foundation, this quick serve station will has pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin donuts, and bottled water. 

In the Carnival Midway, you can enjoy traditional carnival foods including corn dogs, funnel cakes, pizza, and lemon shake-ups. Don’t forget to stop by Uncle Bud’s for the best apple cider slushies in the Midwest. His trailer is one of the most popular stops at the Morton Pumpkin Festival. 

Can’t make it to the festival grounds? You can still grab some grub on the go at Pumpkin to Go, our festival food drive thru. Lead by the Morton Youth Baseball Association, this popular option is open Thursday – Saturday and offers many of our popular food items.
