Celebrate the changing of the seasons at Cheekwood! We’re set to celebrate all things fall during Cheekwood Harvest, part of our year-round lineup of signature seasonal festivals. You’ll find activities and experiences designed to appeal to kids, adults and families alike, making this six-week celebration the perfect time for a peaceful solo stroll, a crisp fall family day, or an afternoon date.

New! Cheekwood Beer Garden
Experience everything the harvest season has to offer with our festive Beer Garden. Enjoy tasty pub fare and beers on tap as you relax with family and friends each weekend of Harvest beginning September 24, and during First Thursday Nights in the Garden on October 6.

Mum Explosion!
More than 5,000 chrysanthemums in deep autumn hues will take center stage in the gorgeous Robertson Ellis Color Garden, planted specifically for Cheekwood Harvest.

Silly and serious, big and small, frightening and friendly – Scarecrows will invade our gardens again this fall! Tour this year’s collection of creative ‘crows in the Turner Seasons Garden, each created by members of our diverse community.

Halloween Pooch Parade - Saturday, October 22
Bring your favorite four-legged friend to Cheekwood for our first annual Halloween Pooch Parade. Costumed canines and their owners are invited to parade around the gardens for a fun morning stroll.
