The first ever Harvest Festival will take place in Downtown Bowling Green, Kentucky on Friday, October 12th starting at 5:30 pm! This family-friendly fall event will have activities for ALL AGES. Let us know you are going on Facebook at

Pumpkin Palooza, brought to you by Warren County Publiac Library and the City of Bowling Green, KY - Municipal Government Parks and Recreation, will be at Circus Square Park and will have tons of kids activities including pumpkin painting, cake walk, fall festival games, and a hay bale fort for kids to climb on and through. Beginning at dusk, an outdoor showing of the movie Coco will take place for everyone ages 2 to 82 to enjoy.

Right outside Circus Square, College Street will be closed to traffic from 6th to 7th Avenue and there will be inflatables, food vendors and “Toot” the Train rides. Kids can also enjoy a magician, face painting and they can explore a hot air balloon on site!

Looking for something more adult? Lost River Sessions will begin at 7 p.m. at the SOKY Marketplace and 6-4-3 and Mariah’s will be offering specialty fall drinks and along with a fire pit for marshmallow roasting and Smores.

Up for some spine-tingling story-telling? Sign up for the Historic Railpark’s “Unseen Bowling Green” walking tours! There will be two story tours during the night, leaving from the historic Standard Oil gas pumps and winding through some spooky corners of downtown.

Last but definitely not least, the BG Zombie Walk, benefiting VSA Kentucky, will take place during the Harvest Festival with face painting beginning at 5:30 PM. Dress in your best Zombie attire! More information and ticket pricing for this even can be found at

Come one and come all! Bowling Green Harvest Festival is going to be the best kick off to the Fall season that BG has ever seen. Special surprises and additional events will also take place.
