Custom Containers Saturday, September 19, 2020.  Christianson’s Nursery, 15806 Best Road, Mount Vernon. Sorry folks!  As the extenuating circumstances of the coronavirus continue its reach, the Skagit Valley Giant Festival is canceled.  This year, we will hold our Weigh-Off portion (only) outside the Vinery by taking pre-registered grower information that will determine scheduled Weigh-Off time slots.  $1500 CASH PRIZE FOR THE BIGGEST PUMPKIN!  Submit pumpkins, squash, super-size garden vegetables (zucchini, watermelons, tomatoes, gourds), and flowers (sunflowers)!  At the end of the Weigh-Off, we will hand out prize money and mail prize ribbons home.  Please include your best mailing address when registering.  All entrants must wear a mask (out of the vehicle) and supply their own slim crew.  We will supply the equipment and scale.  Christianson’s Nursery is an official weigh-off site for the Giant Pumpkin Commonwealth (GPC), an international organization sanctioned to submit giant pumpkin world records!  Download a form to compete at
