Punkin Chunkin Colorado is a two-day event where people travel for miles to see how far they can lob a gourd.  

The 2016 event will mark the 19th year for this zany activity that engages the energy and ingenuity of youth and adults, while inspiring a fresh twist of creativity. Please note...no pets are allowed at Punkin Chunkin Colorado. In addition to the competition, the event offers an exciting fall festival complete with family activities, pumpkin patch, fall market, food vendors and a beer garden!
