Harvest Home Weekend Festival
DATE CHANGE: Saturday and Sunday, October 10 & 11
Mark your calendars for the highlight of the fall season, our annual Harvest Home Weekend Festival. We will have everyone’s favorite activities such as hay rides, scarecrow building, pumpkin painting, entertainment and food served under a big tent. Keepsakes, the Brookgreen Shop, will have artisan potters and sweetgrass basket-makers along with gourmet food samplings, book signings, and more.
In the Lowcountry Zoo area, there will be additional hayrides, kids’ (temporary) tattoos, a snack tent, and special craft and take-home activities just for kids. There will be wool spinning demonstrations, sidewalk chalking, and the butterfly house will be open all day with some new butterflies just for the fall season. ‘Not So Spooky Trekker Adventure’ will be available throughout the weekend (additional fee applies.) Boat rides are not available due to the recent flooding.
