Atlantic Giant Pumpkin Plant Giveaway

Each year over 600 FREE Atlantic Giant Pumpkin plants are given away during the “Seedling Sunday” event. Those seedlings become the grand daddies of the pumpkin patch and are featured during Damariscotta Pumpkinfest & Regatta™ as pumpkinboat contestants in the regatta, or are decorated & displayed on Main Street, Damariscotta/Newcastle during October. The ambitious goal of Pumpkinfest is to collectively grow 500 pumpkins weighing 100 pounds each for a total of 50,000 pounds of fruit!
