Event Overview


Never mind the Indy 500 and forget the Kentucky Derby – the hottest, most contested race of the year takes place at the location of your choice with the competing teams coming from your company! The World Famous Pumpkin Race is an annual tradition celebrated by thousands in communities across America. Our hand-crafted race kits are assembled and packed by our neurodiverse workforce including young adults enrolled in Transition Programs across America.

This unique and seasonal team building program will allow time for teams to collaborate on a team concept, a name, and racer design, incorporating business/corporate ideas with actual or fictitious sponsors on the racer! Then it’s time to build and decorate your pumpkin racer. Pumpkin Racers are made to conform to the Official Great Pumpkin Race Rules. The Official Rules are simple– a Pumpkin Racer must be made from a pumpkin with two independent axles and wheels attached.

TeamBonding provides the Pumpkin Racecar Kits which are fun, easy to assemble and contain everything you need to build a Pumpkin Racecar.  Your TeamBonding facilitator will demo a pumpkin carving, and our team will referee the event, help with decoration, pumpkin carving and provide racing tips.

The winners of each group face-off in the ultimate duel, a race to see who will be the Grand Champion and take home the checkered flag! A team awards ceremony takes place immediately following the finals with prizes awarded for Best Pit Crew (teamwork), Pumpkin Racer (Design), and fastest farthest Racer!

Pumpkins are seasonal but if you really want to do this program in a different season, we can use watermelons.  Every program we offer can be tailored – in fact, we like it that way. Tailoring is one of the big reasons for our ongoing success.

Contact us to tailor this event to your unique needs.

Even with all of the packaged event options we offer, you may need something different. Maybe a special conference theme, favorite management book, ideal training model or a unique set of learning outcomes… We can help.
