Fall and Halloween Fun at Cleveland Botanical Garden

Fall is almost here, and the Cleveland Botanical Garden has fun fall activities for all ages throughout September and October.

Pumpkins, pansies, cabbage, cornstalks, kale, mums and so much more transform the outdoor gardens into a fall wonderland.  Beautiful fall displays will be showcased throughout the indoor and outdoor gardens at the Botanical Garden.  Be sure to experience this time of year at the garden for a festive photo opportunity or simply an opportunity to experience fall flora in all its splendor.  

Join in on Sunday Oct. 22 from noon–5 p.m. for a celebration of scarecrows and skeletons at the annual Bootanical Bash event. 

Little wizards and witches will meander their way from the seasonally decorated terrace to the Hershey Children’s Garden gathering treats along the way.  Ghoulish games and activities will await them on White Oak Walk.  Your kiddos can plan to dance their hearts out to the always fun sounds of DJ Kris Koch.  Registration is required.  Tickets are $28 per nonmember child, $28 per nonmember adult, $8 per member adult and $12 per member child.  

The Cleveland Botanical Garden is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.  The Botanical Garden is closed on Mondays.  Admission is $20 for adults, $14 for children ages 3–12 and free for Holden Forests & Gardens members.
