TThe New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) becomes the region’s pumpkin headquarters during NYBG Fall-O-Ween, offering a fun and engaging array of activities, programs, and photo opportunities for all ages, from Saturday, September 16 through Sunday, November 12, 2023. Experience hundreds of pumpkins and gourds on display; food and beverage talks, demonstrations, and tastings; and two family-friendly Spooky Garden Nights, offering Halloween-themed entertainment for adults and children alike. Fan favorite Adam Bierton returns to NYBG to create his intricate and nature-inspired pumpkin carvings and to host a master carver competition. Once again, the Botanical Garden is the place to see giant pumpkins during the last two weeks of October, culminating in the exciting Giant Pumpkin Carving Weekend. At the “pumpkin patch” at NYBG Shop, pick and purchase the perfect pumpkin to take home for decorating or eating, and on select weekends, get a mini-pumpkin to paint either at the Garden or at home. Fall-O-Ween concludes with two Fall Forest Weekends, with programming celebrating the colorful spectacle of autumnal foliage in the Thain Family Forest.
