Watch as “mechanical wizards” using homemade trebuchets launch pumpkins as far as they can. Think shot put contest meets medieval warfare!

The annual Vermont Pumpkin Chuckin’ Festival takes place at the Stoweflake Resort. The Stowe Festival runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and features three rounds of competitive pumpkin chuckin’ at 12:30 p.m., 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., with awards shortly to follow after the last round.

In addition to the chuckin’ there will be a chili cook-off, offering a chance for friendly competition for those who love to cook our favorite fall food.

The Stowe event has grown in size every year, with more than 2,000 spectators!

As if you needed another reason to consider moving to Stowe, the abundance of Stowe events must surely put most folks who are interested in Stowe VT houses for sale over the line. Consider William Raveis Stowe Realty as your local real estate agency.
