    Hartsburg Pumpkin Festival Saturday October 12

    With the tradition of community, family and friends. The Hartsburg Pumpkin Festival began in 1991 as a celebration of the pumpkin and the promotion for the village of Hartsburg. In those days, and to the present, Hartsburg was known as “The Garden Spot of Boone County.” That rich Missouri River bottom soil produces unique and bountiful harvests of grains, grasses, fruits, and vegetables. It was a time to share our wealth with mid-Missouri. More information can be found here.
