As promised, we left the lights on for you until Pumpkinfest 2021.  Guess what?!  Pumpkinfest is BACK!!!!  After going virtual in 2020, the Pony Express Museum is excited to announce the dates for Pumpkinfest 2021!  This year marks the 25th anniversary of our popular event.  Pumpkinfest begins at 5 pm on October 8 and runs through Sunday, October 10 at 5 pm


Don’t miss a crowd favorite – the lighting of Pumpkin Mountain!  Watch in amazement as we light over 500 hand-carved pumpkins on the Mountain in front of the Museum at 8 pm on both Friday and Saturday nights!

Our family-focused festival sponsored by the Pony Express Museum in St. Joseph, MO starts Friday night at 5 pm.  It runs all day Saturday from 10 am to 9 pm, and Sunday from noon to 5 pm.

Financial assistance provided by St. Joseph, MO Convention and Visitors Bureau.
