The Search is On!

The Great Pumpkin Pin Search is a time-honored tradition at the Morton Pumpkin Festival.  For four weeks, hundreds of local families search to find the pumpkin pin, hidden somewhere in Morton.  Weekly clues lead the way for our pin searchers and the person who finds the pin wins $300 and helps us cut the pumpkin vine to open the Morton Pumpkin Festival.  Join the search today!



It takes an estimated 2,000 volunteers to host the Morton Pumpkin Festival.  Join us in helping to serve our festival guests by registering for a volunteer shift today!  Volunteers must be 12 years of age or older.  Children ages 8-11 may volunteer with an adult supervisor.
