SOUTH LYON, MI – Vibe Credit Union Pumpkinfest’s Board of Directors is proud to announce a more enhanced festival for 2022. Last year, we brought back a modified festival, after having no festival in 2020. Now, we feel we can bring back even more of the community’s Pumpkinfest favorites. The Pumpkinfest Parade, and the Family Stage will return with community groups performing, as well as Pie eating and Pie Bake-off Contests. In addition, more food trucks and kids’ activities will be available.

One facet, that will not be a part of the festival this year is the Main Music Stage and Beer Tent. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the ongoing supply chain problems, and vendor availability, we are facing exorbitant costs for this part of the festival. Pumpkinfest is a non-profit festival, and we must use the sponsorship dollars entrusted to us in the best way possible. The weekend festival will continue to offer much-loved event fixtures, such as nonprofit and artisan booths, kid-friendly games, Family stage entertainment and the Ultimate Air Dogs shows.

As a nonprofit dedicated to supporting local nonprofits, we’re thrilled to bring the 37th Pumpkinfest to the South Lyon Area.

Vibe Credit Union Pumpkinfest of the South Lyon Area is a nonprofit that is entirely run by volunteers. Vibe Credit Union is the festival’s title sponsor. Pumpkinfest supports local nonprofits, small businesses, and artists through an annual festival of games, crafts, and other entertainment.
