Fall-O-Ween at The New York Botanical Garden

Fall-O-Ween

The New York Botanical Garden presents NYBG Fall-O-Ween, a celebration of the autumn season with an array of attractions and activities for all ages. Visitors can experience pumpkins and gourds galore, an NYBG Beer Garden, and a self-guided tour of disappearing plants. Special weekends during Fall-O-Ween provide even more to see and do—beginning at the start of the fall season with Bales & Ales, a day of brews, music, lawn games, and hands-on gardening and craftmaking, and culminating at the end of October with the return of Giant Pumpkins. On select evenings, Spooky Nights offer Halloween-themed entertainment for adults and children alike, such as live music dance parties, a trick-or-treat trail, and a shadow puppet show.
