Welcome to the 58th annual Barnesville Pumpkin Festival

The officers and committee members are excited to welcome you to the 2022 Barnesville Pumpkin Festival, Thursday, September 22 through Sunday, September 25. Contests, delicious foods, giant pumpkins, horticultural displays, arts, crafts, parade, car show and a super lineup of musical entertainment make this one of the best festivals in the state.

The Pumpkin Festival began in 1964 as a small street festival founded in the basement of the Catholic Church. Things have changed considerably since the earlier festivals. We have well over 100 vendors providing concessions, rides and harvest-inspired arts and crafts, antiques and more. Local organizations and churches offer a variety of home-style foods. Musical entertainment and contests take place on two stages, the Central Stage on East Main St. and the Pumpkin Stage on W. Main St. There is a variety of fun

contests for both adults and children, a weigh-off of champion pumpkins, a giant pumpkin parade on Saturday, and an antique, classic & custom car show on Sunday. There is plenty to see and do and, best of all, admission remains FREE. The Barnesville Pumpkin Festival has become a tradition for families and friends, many who travel long distances to come each year to enjoy one of Ohio’s most popular festivals. Our committee of volunteers works hard each year to make each festival better than the one before. We are very happy to have you visit and hope you have a most enjoyable and memorable time. Please visit our Information Booth during the festival, located at the corner of Main & Chestnut Streets, where we will answer any questions, guide you to various events or supply you with souvenirs. See you at the Barnesville Pumpkin Festival!

Wednesday Night Weigh-Off Of Giant Pumpkins

• $2 per pound paid for the King Pumpkin!

Everyone gathers around downtown for the Wednesday night Giant Pumpkin Weighoff to see who will tip the scales the most. Wednesday night is considered the unofficial start of the Festival, prior to the arrival of many out-of-town visitors. From 6-9pm on September 21, a parade of trucks and trailers carrying huge pumpkins get in line to face the scales. This is surely one of the most popular events for the local townspeople as neighbors and friends visit and wait to see who will have this year’s King Pumpkin.

We would like to thank Ohio Valley Scale in Wheeling, WV, for donating the large scales to accommodate the ever-increasing size of gigantic pumpkins. Thank you also to Village Hardware & Rental and Braido Memorials for their time and equipment in assisting with the giant pumpkins. A special thanks to Louisiana Grill who is a major sponsor of the prize money for the King and other placing pumpkins and to Doan Ford who sponsors the trophies for the 1st, 2nd & 3rd place pumpkins.

King Pumpkin entries are the only ones accepted on Wednesday night. The line-up will change this year, with entries lining up on North Chestnut (800), headed south towards the intersection of Chestnut and Main Street. This will make it easy to pull up to the scales rather than backing in.

Exhibitor of the largest entry receives $2.00 per pound. Winner of the largest “locally-grown” pumpkin receives $100. “Locally-grown” is defined as any exhibit grown in Belmont, Guernsey, Harrison, Jefferson, Monroe and Noble counties. Second largest overall receives $1,000, third - $500, fourth - $300, fifth - $200, sixth -$150 and 7th through 10th place each receive $100.

Coverage of this event will be live-streamed via Belmont Country Tourism Council on FaceBook.

Nationally Traveling EYES OF FREEDOM Coming Again!

This traveling memorial depicts the fallen Marines and Navy Corpsman of Columbus, OH based Lima Company 3/25, one of the most heavily engaged units of Operation Iraqi Freedom. These 23 life-sized portraits have become a powerful traveling military tribute. Although the paintings in this Memorial specifically depict 23 fallen Marines, it has become much more. The mission of the nonprofit, Eyes of Freedom is to honor the service and sacrifice of all who answer our nation’s call. Behind each portrait one feels the spirit of the thousands of men and women who have served our country, in every branch of the armed forces, not forgetting the returning veterans coming home to us.

The memorial includes a life-sized bronzed sculpture of a serviceman seated with head down, his face depicting emotions of the internal Silent Battle, as the touchable work is aptly named. He represents our nation’s veterans who struggle with post-traumatic stress and thoughts of suicide, as they navigate life after combat.

This traveling tribute is supported by a board of directors and a two-man touring team, each with a personal connection to the men in the paintings; one is a purple heart combat vet who fought alongside these men and was badly injured and the other was personal friends of fallen Marine Justin Hoffman. Both men offer personal insight into the history and experience of this powerful memorial.

Agriculture & Horticulture Entries Provide A Visual Display Of Nature’s Bounty

Agriculture and Horticulture Displays are a feast for the eyes while providing a colorful backdrop for the giant pumpkins. Many hours of labor by both the growers and the festival volunteers go into these displays and we encourage anyone to participate. Entries are accepted from 9:00am to 7:00pm on Thursday, September 22. It is a long day for the many dedicated volunteers as they work to accept entries. Gather those pumpkins, gourds, fruits or vegetables or make a scarecrow and bring to the festival to make this 58th year a splendid agricultural display. Size limitations do apply so if you have any questions concerning restrictions or would like to volunteer to accept entries, please call the chairman, Jeff Carpenter at 740-310-1497.

The FFA judges will award the winning ribbons on Friday morning.

The Pumpkin Seed Harvest On Sunday

If you’ve been contemplating trying to grow a giant pumpkin, then you might want to attend the Pumpkin Seed Harvest on Sunday. One of the giant pumpkins, other than the first, second or third-place winners — and only if one is available — will be cut open and the seeds distributed, two each to anyone wanting the seeds. This takes place in the King Pumpkin area, the main attraction, where everyone gathers to admire these gentle giants, get their pictures taken and trade stories.

The Daniel Stephens Family provides an interesting and educational presentation that gives everyone an inside look at a big pumpkin and how to grow one. The demonstration takes place at 2:00pm Sunday, September 25, near the Information Booth.

Don’t miss this informative exhibition and get your seeds too. We’d love to see you bring in your own giant pumpkins next year!

This will only happen if there is a pumpkin available!

Quilt Display Being Featured At The Museum

A Quilt Display will be held at the beautiful Belmont County Victorian Mansion Museum from Friday through Sunday, by admission, featuring vintage quilts from the museum’s collection. The museum will be open on Friday and Sunday from 12:00 to 4:00pm and Saturday from 10:00am to 6:00pm. Admission is $8.00 for adults and $2.00 for youth 6-18 years old. For information regarding the Quilt Display, please call the Museum at 740-425-2926.

King Pumpkin On Auction Block Saturday

One of the most exciting events of the Barnesville Pumpkin Festival is the auctioning off of the King Pumpkin. The excitement of auction time always builds Saturday afternoon after the completion of the Giant Pumpkin Parade when local auctioneer, Richard Pryor, cranks it up with his sales call from the King Pumpkin Area.

Pryor donates his time each year to sell the King Pumpkin as thousands of festival-goers look on.

And the excitement does not stop until “SOLD” is called out.

The auction is a major fund raising effort for the Festival Committee. Last year’s King Pumpkin set a new state record weighing 2,195 pounds and grown by Jeff Theil of Dillonvale, Ohio. This was the second time that the Barnesville Pumpkin Festival has produced the state record. The new state record King Pumpkin was purchased by Belmont Classic Car owners, Andy and Dana Mistak, for $8,500.

The winning bidder not only supports

the Barnesville Pumpkin Festival, but also gets front-page billing on the following year’s official Pumpkin Festival Tabloid. They also get to show off the huge vegetable at their business for a week.

Immediately following the sale of the King Pumpkin, an auction of the limited edition glass pumpkins will be held.

The King Pumpkin Auction begins at 5:00pm on Saturday, September 24, in the area near the Giant Pumpkin display. For more information about the auction, stop at the Information Booth located in the vicinity.

Just before the auction, the 2022 Royalty and Mascot will be introduced.

A second auction will be held on the Festival’s closing day Sunday, September 25, at 5:00pm for all unclaimed produce entries as well as the raffle drawing for the twelfth annual, custom-made Barnesville Pumpkin Festival Crock, crafted and donated by local artist Luke Johnson of Johnson Pottery.

Queens Spotted At Blame My Roots Festival

You never know who you will run into at the ever popular and fantastic Blame My Roots country music festival held nearby in Morristown. Spotted this summer were Michelle Slavik Gabram, left, the 1982 Pumpkin Queen, along with Olivia LeeWood Jefferis, the 2004 Pumpkin Queen. However, I bet there were more Pumpkin Queens on hand at BMR.

Councilman Tim McKelvey


McKelvey Named Parade Grand Marshal

Barnesville life long citizen, Councilman Tim McKelvey will be honored as the Grand Marshal of the 2022 Giant Pumpkin Parade. Tim graciously agreed to be the Grand Marshal and will enjoy a place of honor at the head of the parade along with his wife, Liz, and a few of his five grandchildren.

A native, a veteran, a councilman, a family man, and a contributor on all fronts, McKelvey, born and raised here in Barnesville, said “I am so lucky to be born in this town, to be raised in this town and to raise our kids in this town, and I’m really glad to live here now.” A citizen of whom Barnesville is immensely proud to call their own, Tim has given much of his time and money and is always willing to support a multitude of local efforts.

After graduating from Barnesville and Belmont Tech, Tim was employed by UPS in Columbus for a brief stint before being drafted into the Service. After serving in the Army he returned back to UPS for a short while before permanently returning to his roots where he worked in the mining industry for 16 years followed by employment at Barnesville schools for over a decade. Not one to spend his time idly, Councilman McKelvey spends his retirement days as a professional painter and paper hanger.

McKelvey has been involved in many organizations in Barnesville starting with being a charter member of the Barnesville E-Squad, 40+ years of being a member of the Barnesville Boosters, the 200 Club, and the Chain Crew of the Shamrock Football team. Additionally, he has served on the Community Foundation, Barnesville Area Education Foundation, the Rotary, and has served three terms plus three years as a Councilman of which he is a past president. Tim is a devout Catholic and member of the Assumption Church in Barnesville.

Tim resides here in Barnesville with his wife, Elizabeth. They have two daughters, Sara McKelvey Artrip (Chad) of Fredonia, NY and Lindsey McKelvey McGlumphy (Kyle) of Columbus, OH; and five grandchildren, Delaney and Jack Artrip and Libby, Mara & Avery McGlumphy.

When asked his thoughts on the Pumpkin Festival, Tim said “the best thing is running into people you haven’t seen in years.” His highlight is having dinner with his family on Sunday, the last day of the festival, in the basement of the Catholic Church. You will always find Councilman McKelvey on Wednesday evening of the Weigh-off happily serving customers at the Rotary’s Fish Wagon.

The Times Leader’s Jennifer Compston-Strough Will Cut The

Ribbon To Open The 2022 Barnesville Pumpkin Festival

The Barnesville Pumpkin Festival is proud to have local newspaper editor Jennifer Compston-Strough to cut the ribbon, signaling the official opening of this year’s festival at 5:00 p.m. Thursday, September 22, 2022.

The Belmont resident is the managing editor of The Times Leader and, as such, has covered the weigh-off and scores of other Pumpkin Festival events during the course of her career. She said she is excited to participate in the opening ceremony.

“I was born in Barnesville and raised just a few miles away in Belmont, so the Pumpkin Festival has always been a special autumn event for myself, my friends and my family,”

she said. “I am honored to have the opportunity to cut the ribbon to open the festivities.”

Compston-Strough is a Barnesville native and visited the village often as a child, taking swimming lessons at the pool, learning to play piano at Neal Studio of Music and participating in dance, tumbling and baton classes in the community. One of her earliest Pumpkin Festival memories is marching in the Giant Pumpkin Parade while twirling her baton. She followed that same route several more times as a member of the Union Local High School Marching Band, and again later while working as director of advancement for Olney Friends School. Inciden-

tally, her husband, Michael Strough, is a magician who has performed at the festival as well.

A UL graduate, Compston-Strough obtained a bachelor’s degree from Wright State University before teaching in area schools for a few years and then landing a job as a newspaper reporter, launching her journalism career. In addition to her work at The Times Leader, she enjoys gardening, home improvement projects, board games and spending time with family and friends.

She said on of her favorite annual activities is viewing the village homes and businesses that have been decorated in preparation for the festival.

Barnesville Senior Center Ready To Serve Lunch

The cooking crew of the Barnesville Senior Citizens Center wants to invite everyone to stop in on Thursday and Friday, September 22-23, as they will be serving lunch both days. Lunch will be served from 11:00am to 3:00pm.

Emerald Pointe Providing Free Ice Cream For Seniors

The menu includes vegetable soup, sloppy joe’s, hot dogs, chili dogs, hot chicken sandwiches, homemade noodles, coleslaw and pumpkin pie.

The senior –center also will be taking orders for whole pumpkin pies for $8.00.

Seniors will get a special treat again this year at the Pumpkin Festival. Emerald Pointe will be serving free ice cream from the Pumpkin Wagon to senior citizens on Sunday, September 25, from 2:005:00pm. Come see us then and get a free scoop on us. Yummy!

The Pumpkin Wagon Ready To Serves Pumpkin-Based Goodies

The Pumpkin Wagon, operated by the Barnesville Area Chamber of Commerce will be ready to serve you the delicious pumpkin-based foods such as pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin donuts and pumpkin pies during the festival. The Pumpkin Wagon has become one of the most popular booths of the festival with many people coming back year-toyear to get their favorite items.

Another reason the Pumpkin Wagon has become such a favorite spot is that it is staffed by many community volunteers. Many of the volunteers have served for a number of years while new ones join in to assist each year. In addition, “celebrity servers” will be manning the booth representing the local businesses many of which are dedicated members of the Barnesville Chamber of Commerce.

Festival-goers really enjoy patronizing the

Pumpkin Wagon as they realize that all the profits go right back into the community to help the local area. With the Chamber of Commerce heading up the force, the profits are thereby put to use to further the interest of the businesses of Barnesville. It’s a great example of the “community supporting the community,” said John Rataiczak, Chamber Board member.

On Sunday, September 25, Emerald Pointe will sponsor FREE ICE CREAM from 2:00-5:00pm for Senior Citizens!

The Pumpkin Wagon’s hours of operations will be Wednesday, September 21 from 5:009:00pm; Thursday and Friday, September 22-23 from 11:00am-10:00pm; Saturday from 9:00am10:00pm; and on Sunday from 12:00 noon5:00pm.
