Oxford Pumpkin Festival @ Across Oxford and Oxfordshire

October is the time of year when we celebrate the humble pumpkin and “squash food waste” by encouraging people to eat rather than discard their Halloween pumpkin’s flesh.

The message is simple: Carve it, Cook it, Eat it – Don’t bin it!

What’s scarier than witches, ghosts and ghouls at Halloween? How about the 18,000 tonnes of edible pumpkin that end up in the bin each year. That’s the same weight as 1,500 double decker buses!

The Oxford Pumpkin Festival is a celebration of food: creatively encouraging people to think about the food they throw away, challenging preconceptions and teaching new skills.

Get in touch to run your event as part of the 7th Oxford Pumpkin Festival, and submit your best pumpkin recipe to us. Check out all events on our website.
