Pumpkin Festival

Spalla FDZ

4th weekend of october

The Pumpkin Festival has a unique way to bring the ancient chronicles of the Land of Venzone to life. The first edition took place in 1991 almost by coincidence and since then it enlivens Venzone every year during  the fourth weekend of October.



Please share your images of the the Pumpking Festival on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter using only the tag #FdZ_Venzone, #FdZ_Challenge and #unsalottotralemura. Your images could be the next cover photos of the official Pumkin Festival Page and/or be inserted in a Pumpkin festival dedicated e-book.

The aim of the Photo Challenge #FdZ_Challenge is to collect the best moments you’re seeing through your eyes.

La Zucca d'Oro di Venzone

The Legend of the Golden Pumpkin

Once upon a time there was a noble town called Venzone. Many were the beautiful buildings and landmarks which the town owned, but the cathedral was the most beautiful among them all. To make it even more beautiful, a golden ball was commissioned to be set on the top of the cathedral’s belfry. But something went wrong, and the inhabitants found themselves looking at a big golden pumpkin falling apart from the top of the belfry.



All editions of the Pumpkin Festival described through your photos. Let’s recall together the most amazing moments of the medieval event that animates the ancient walled town of Venzone.
