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.
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.
