Pumpkin exhibition 23.08. – 03.11.2024

From 23 August to 3 November 2024, Ludwigsburg will once again be the pumpkin capital!

For the 25th time, the world's largest pumpkin exhibition will transform the Blühende Barock Ludwigsburg into a stage for unrivalled pumpkin art. From 23.08. to 03.11.2024, pumpkins of every size, shape and colour will dominate the scenery in the palace gardens.
This year, famous personalities will be in the spotlight at the pumpkin show - from historical figures to modern icons who have achieved great things or provided profound inspiration. The repertoire is broad: Childhood heroine Pippi Longstocking makes an appearance, as do the world-famous painter Frida Kahlo and the courageous resistance fighter Sophie Scholl.

A special exhibition to mark the anniversary explains more about the origin and variety of the pumpkins on display. There are also traditional pumpkin culinary delights, such as Germany's largest pumpkin soup, as well as popular programme highlights such as the pumpkin slaughter festival.
