Each October since 1992, this two-day event dominates the streets of downtown Ukiah. The festival features craft and food vendors, fine arts exhibits, live music, a haunted house, pet costume contests, a children’s carnival, the Deep Valley Brew & Wine Fest, and “Scarecrow City.” Those blessed with green thumbs can enter the giant pumpkin weigh-off, while those with culinary talent get a chance in the Pumpkin Baking Contest, and everyone gets to enjoy the parade.
