Pumpkin Pics

Each year, local Maine artists more then meet the challenge of decorating sixty to seventy Atlantic Giant Pumpkins which are displayed in downtown Damariscotta & Newcastle during Damariscotta Pumpkinfest & Regatta™. The results are extraordinary and bring thousands of viewers from New England and beyond. Click here for a trail guide to this year’s pumpkins.

T-Shirt Contest Entries

Breanna Cushman, of St. George submitted the winning design for this year’s Damariscotta Pumpkinfest & Regatta™.

Cushman’s cheery, upbeat design wonderfully captures the sights and spirit of the event, held every year during Columbus Day weekend. Cushman’s design depicts a nighttime downtown Damariscotta Main Street chockablock full of huge painted pumpkins grown by volunteers since mid-May, when nearly 600 baby pumpkins were given away free at Pinkham’s Plantation on Biscay Road.

T-Shirt Contest Entries

Each year the call goes out to submit designs for the annual T-shirt contest.  Many talented entries are received each year, below are entries submitted in 2016 and 2017; although not chosen as the final winners, each design is a great representation of the spirit of Pumpkinfest and the local community of Damariscotta.
