This family-friendly event held in the picturesque setting of Brookgreen’s botanical gardens features a pumpkin patch, pumpkin painting stations, and other festive activities in their large outdoor spaces. Visitors are invited to get creative and participate in the over-the-top scarecrow building contest. Families can use individually prepared kits or bring their own clothing to use.
“We are excited for our visitors to safely enjoy fall-themed activities at Harvest Home Weekend this year,” said Page Kiniry, President, and CEO of Brookgreen Gardens. “This Lowcountry tradition is the perfect opportunity for families to explore Brookgreen Gardens, take in the changing colors, and welcome the Fall season.”
During the festival, visitors are invited to explore the entirety of Brookgreen’s grounds. Access to the festival is included in standard admission prices, while the pumpkin painting and scarecrow activities are separate fees. Purchase tickets in advance online by visiting this website.
