The Pumpkin Chuckin Contest in Moab, Utah

Visit Moab, Utah on Saturday October, 27 for the Moab Pumpkin Chuckin Contest. The Contest will be held from 10:00am until 4:00pm at the Old Airport Runway just south of Moab. Folks from all over the country as well as Moab locals will be creating some innovative machines that launch pumpkins. The Sorrel River Ranch Resort & Spa is welcoming out-of-towners to come stay in our award-winning luxury resort for this year’s contest.

Contest participants will be bringing in their best and most innovative slingshots, trebuchets, catapults and air cannons. They work tirelessly throughout the year to perfect their launchers and see who is the ultimate pumpkin chucker. Seeing all of these incredible feats of engineering is second only to seeing the pumpkins fly through the air and smash into the ground.

This incredible event in Moab has much more than just the Pumpkin Chuckin. There is something for the whole family! Send your best eater into the pie-eating contest. Wear your best costume for a chance to win the costume contest. There will also be vendors on hand serving up food and drinks as well as vendors selling arts and crafts. For the young ones there will be children’s activities and fun events like the Weiner Dog races.

The Pumpkin Chuckin contest in Moab is the annual fall fundraiser for The Youth Garden Project. The goal of the Youth Garden Project is to educate people, and cultivate healthier children, families and communities through various programs and connecting people with food from the seed to the table.

Those travelling in from out-of-town should stay with us at one of the finest resorts in Moab, Sorrel River Ranch Resort & Spa. Sorrel River Ranch is where luxury meets adventure.
