Arizona Giant Pumpkin Growers

Join Us!

And Grow Something Big.

We're here to help.

Our Purpose

The AZGPG promotes the hobby of gardening with a focus placed on the fun of competition and the production of obscenely large healthy vegetables -- with an emphasis on giant pumpkins.  We encourage, as well as recognize, all fruits and vegetables on the international competition list.

-- We will share gardening tips and information and help to encourage new membvers and new gardeners.

-- We will, to the best of our ability, treat each and every member equally and fairly.

-- We will continue to improve our organization for the benefit of our members.

The hobby of gardening should be fulfilling, rewarding, and above all fun for everyone involved.

AZGPG Mission Statement

The Arizona Giant Pumpkin Growers Association (AZGPG) is organized as a nonprofit corporation in Arizona exclusively for charitable, educational, and scientific purposes.  The AZGPG provides hand-on teaching support to gardeners, and horticulturists, seeking to grow giant vegetables - especially giant pumpkins.  It encourages hobby growers to participate in giant vegetable (giant pumpkin) weigh-offs at festivals and fairs held locally, regionally, or nationally.

We want to help growers develop friendships, and create goodwill, through our shared hobby of growing giant vegetables in the Southwest Deserts ( to include Arizona, New Mexico, Southern Nevada, and Inland Southern California).

We believe everyone should grow giant vegetables -- especially giant pumpkins -- and we're here to help.

The Arizona Giant Pumpkin Growers Association is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(C)3 nonprofit organization.
