Berkshire Botanical Garden Harvest Festival 2018It’s Berkshire Botanical Garden Harvest Festival time once again! Live entertainment, games, food, vendors, workshops, and more! Come celebrate the autumn harvest at the Berkshire Botanical Garden during Columbus Day weekend: October 6th and 7th, 2018.

The annual Berkshire Botanical Garden Harvest Festival is one of the Berkshires’ most popular fall festivals. The Botanical gardens are always beautiful but they positively sparkle with activity and good humor during Harvest Festival.

The expanded Plant and Bulb Sale continues to be one of the biggest draws for the festival – but it’s not the only reason to attend. Artisans from across the region bring their best hand-crafted items to the festival, as well as delicious culinary creations. There are also Tag Sales of gently-used jewelry, accessories, household items, clothing, and more.

The Berkshire Botanical Garden Harvest Festival is also known for its great drop-in Workshops. Last year saw talks on beekeeping, seed collecting, ice harvesting, cider making, and much more. While this year’s workshop list has yet to be released, it’s bound to hold some exciting topics.

Live music from a variety of bands will put a beat in your step throughout the festival weekend. The kids will have hay and pony rides, face painting, games, and other favorites to keep them entertained.
