2023 Chunkin Events

Postby madmattd » Thu Sep 07, 2023 2:02 pm

Year 9 of attempting to catalog a listing of the various hurling events (not limited to pumpkin-throwing, though that does seem to be the vast majority) that are occurring and open to the public to enter. As you hear of other ones with confirmed dates, and preferably a website link too, let me know and I'll add them here to make them easy to find! Please let me know of any that I've missed!

We've had a big reduction in events the last couple of years, we need to get chunkin going again! Any and all events are welcome to reach out to me and be added to this list.

Past Year's Listings:
(No events were held in 2020 due to Covid-19)

This event is returning after last being held in 2018, and is put on in part by the folks behind the World Champion Trebuchet Colossal Thunder. As the WCPCA (the Delaware group from years past) has yet to find a new location for their traditional event, the WCPCA has leased the name World Championships of Punkin Chunkin for 2023 to this event - you will see it advertised under both names.

November 2023
