Savour Stratford Pumpkin Trail

Savour delicious pumpkin tastes on our Savour Stratford Pumpkin Trail as the autumn sun ripens local pumpkins dotting fields and gardens throughout the county. Humble in nature, yet rich in nutrients, pumpkin is fall’s favourite flavour.  Relish traditional pumpkin pie and pumpkin spiced coffee and tea, or notice the subtle difference pumpkin apple butter presents. More pumpkin inspired treats are offered along the trail in September and October.

Purchase the PumpkinTrail Gift Certificate on-line or the vouchers in person at Stratford Tourism. The $25 (+HST) pass includes 6 vouchers that you can exchange for a unique pumpkin treat at 6 stops on a self-guided tour. The Savour Stratford Pumpkin Trail is only available until October 31 when our pumpkin cravings turn into pumpkin carvings!

Visit McCully’s Fall Harvest Festival weekends in October for more pumpkin fun. Try your hand at the pumpkin catapult, pick your pumpkins for cooking or carving and shop the farm market for fresh baked pies and preserves while the kids explore the corn maze. Admission is charged.

Below, you’ll find a list of participating businesses and a description of their treats. Read on — they’re waiting for you!
