we are working hard to bring it back in 2024
We regret to have to let you know that PumpkinPalooza will not take place in 2023, though we’re hopeful we can bring it back to downtown Sparks by next year.
The largest fall festival in Northern Nevada, PumpkinPalooza was designed to be a safe and affordable family-friendly event. As importantly, it’s also a fundraiser for the Northern Nevada Center for Independent Living (NNCIL).
Unfortunately, rising production costs across the board have been detrimental to both of these purposes. In addition to rising production costs, severe weather during the post-COVID return of the event has negatively impacted attendance and fundraising efforts. Unfortunately, the event has not been able to give back to NNCIL in many years.
Thank you for celebrating family and fall with us these past 11 years. We remain committed to working with the City of Sparks and NNCIL to explore ways to bring PumpkinPalooza back in 2024.
