It's only three days until the 3rd Annual Oklahoma Giant Pumpkin Growers Weighoff!

Social distancing guidelines will be maintained, and face coverings will be provided for free to attendees.

Weighoff Address:

Claremore Expo Center
400 Veterans Parkway
Claremore, OK 74017

Unloading of entries will be from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Weighoff begins at 1 p.m.

This will be held in the style of a traditional weighoff, so you will be able to observe each fruit as it goes onto the scale, while maintaining the "safe distance" specified in CDC guidelines.
