Fall for Cheekwood


Take a hayride across Cheekwood’s gorgeous grounds, indulge in a delicious s’more, play in the pumpkin patch and so much more during our annual FALL FOR CHEEKWOOD Family Benefit.

Cheekwood debuted this high-end take on an old-fashioned fall festival in 2014, which raises funds to support Cheekwood’s mission to make art and gardens accessible to everyone, specifically through the free school tours we offer year-round. And what better way to support our focus on education than to involve your family and kids?

Your family’s support during FALL FOR CHEEKWOOD helps fund visits by 12,000 school children from across the Southeast who are able to experience the wonder of Cheekwood free of charge, giving access to children who may not otherwise have the opportunity.

Don’t miss your chance to enjoy Cheekwood’s signature blend of timeless elegance and serious family fun – all for a great cause.

  • Hayrides
  • Live Entertainment
  • Southern Supper & Cocktails
  • Lawn Games
  • Art & Crafts
  • Photo Booth
  • and more!
