The Murray River Giant Pumpkin Competition has reached world-wide recognition with interest from across the globe and has been registered with the ‘Great Pumpkin Commonwealth’ accredited association.

Five years ago MGA Insurance Brokers, donated a prize for the grower of the heaviest pumpkin* to attend the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin and Art Festival near San Francisco which has driven this competition to a new level of appeal, creating many amateur growers across the Nation. There are 10 prizes in categories from Prettiest Pumpkin to Ugliest Pumpkin, so dress up your Queensland Blue, Butternut, or Squash for the novelty section!

In 2011 Dale Oliver travelled the long distance from Byron Bay to deliver his pumpkin weighing in at an amazing 390kg and won first prize. His record has never been broken, perhaps this is the year to do it!

Don’t miss the Easter Saturday event on the Morgan river frontl, only two hours from Adelaide on the magnificent Murray River.
