The September Harvest Festival during the last weekend in September is a regional festival that attracts hundreds of thousands of people to Öland. The whole island turns into a stage for countless activities. Solberga Gård with his pumpkin championship was up to 2014 one of the main attractions of the harvest festival. How big and heavy can a pumpkin be? This question was answered each year at Solberga: The Swedish record holder, Anders Lilja, presented a pumpkin with a weight of 626 kg in 2009! This was, at that time, the second heaviest ever bred in Europe.
