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 foods made with LIBBY’S® Pumpkin to Festival goers. The menus include everything from pumpkin chili, pumpkin baked beans, and pumpkin pasta salad to pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin shakes, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin cookies, and LIBBY’S® pumpkin pie. Other popular items come off the grill, like our delicious pork chop sandwich, brats and ribeye steak sandwich.
Along the carnival midway, you can enjoy traditional carnival foods including corn dogs, funnel cakes, pizza, and lemon shake-ups.
Can’t make it to the Festival grounds? You can still grab some Festival food on the go at Pumpkin-To-Go, our Festival drive thru. Hosted by the Morton Youth Baseball Association (MYBA) and sponsored by Mike Murphy Ford, this popular option is open Thursday through Saturday and offers many of our popular Festival fare. New to the Pumpkin-To-Go options this year: pumpkin ice cream and pumpkin donuts sold from 6:30 am to 9:30 am on Thursday and Friday mornings. Pick pumpkin donuts up on your way work! Your co-workers will love you!
