A pumpkin queen may be either a fictional character or a real person associated with a variety of beauty contests held in North America.

"The Great Queen Pumpkin" served as a major character in the film Curse of Halloween.[1] In R. L. Stine's Haunting Hour: Don't Think About It, "Priscilla is crowned Pumpkin Queen."[2] Recently, Marlane Kennedy published the book Me and the Pumpkin Queen.[3][4][5]

Pumpkin shows and festivals in various American states include pageants to determine their pumpkin queen.
