Celebrate the autumnal season at Cheekwood! We’re set to celebrate all things fall during Cheekwood Harvest, part of our year-round lineup of signature seasonal festivals. The changing of the leaves are one of many garden highlights you’ll find as oaks, maples, dogwoods, and other trees greet you with their fall colors. 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.
Please note that Cheekwood closes at 4:30 PM for all daytime access. All guests will be asked to leave the property at that time. A separate ticket purchased for the time slots between 5 PM and 10 PM is required to attend in the evening.
