If you’ve never been to the West Coast Giant Pumpkin Regatta odds are you’ve never seen anyone sit inside a giant pumpkin let alone race one across a lake dressed as a superhero or the tooth fairy.
Over the last 10 years the award-winning West Coast Giant Pumpkin Regatta has become Oregon's best October event. Spectators come from not only the Pacific Northwest but also from all over the United States and Canada. The event has been featured by a wide variety of local, regional, and national media outlets including the Wall Street Journal, CNN, the Travel Channel, Better Homes and Gardens, HGTV, and Food Network Magazine.

The Regatta Run, 5K Walk or Run will be held in conjunction with the 11th Annual West Coast Giant Pumpkin Regatta.
The race was created in honor of Corporal Matthew Lembke, who lost his life from wounds sustained on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan. To celebrate Matt’s character and service, a scholarship fund has been created in his name. Each year, scholarships will be awarded to one or more Tualatin High School graduating seniors.
