19th Annual Pumpkinvine Bike Ride
Elkhart County Fairgrounds
Pumpkinvine & Dine is an annual bike ride and two fundraising dinners for the expansion of the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail.
Pumpkinvine Bike Ride – Bicycle on the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail and on county roads through the third largest Amish community in the U.S. Cruise on roads beside horses and buggies past traditional farms with sheep, cattle and newborn foals in summer pastures.
Dining events – We are excited to offer two dining events. First, on Friday evening there will be a bicycle ride to an Amish home where you will enjoy a Thresher’s dinner. Then on Saturday both riders and non-riders can participate in a fundraising dinner where regional chefs and restaurants will prepare their favorite recipes and fill your plates with a variety of tasty portions that will delight your palate. Dessert is included as well as two tickets for local brews/wines (for those 21 and over).
All of these events will be centered at the Elkhart County Fairgrounds where RV camping is available if you want to wake up, step out of your camper and find yourself at Bike Ride Headquarters.
Admission fee: $30/individual until May 16, $50 until June 11, June 12 - 16: $16
