Congratulations to the 2017 Pumpkin Derby Winners. Click here for 2017 Derby results.

The Pumpkin Derby features small, non-motorized pumpkin racers (total weight not to exceed 20 pounds) that race on a 50 yard course in downtown Damariscotta.

Sponsors: Newcastle Chrysler Dodge-Jeep-Ram-Viper / First National Bank

Entrants, who design, decorate and build the pumpkin racers, compete in three age groups:

Youth — 12 years and younger (Pumpkins decorated and raced by children, with parental assistance in building)

Teens — 13-19 (Pumpkins decorated and raced by teens, with or without parental assistance)

Adults — 20 years and up

The winners of each group face-off in the ultimate duel, a race to see who will be the Grand Champion and take home the checkered flag!

There also are prizes for scariest, funniest, and most creative pumpkin racers.
