STOCKBRIDGE, Mass. — Berkshire Botanical Garden’s annual Harvest Festival, an iconic Berkshire event now in its 85th year, is scheduled for 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Oct. 12 and Oct. 13 at the Garden located at 5 West Stockbridge Road, Stockbridge, Mass.
This year’s Festival includes expansion to include five adjoining acres on the north side of the property purchased in the spring of 2019, bringing to 20 the total acreage planned for the Festival.
The Harvest Festival has earned a reputation for being a quintessential family event celebrating the autumn harvest, when the Garden is transformed into a vibrant hub featuring continuous entertainment, children’s games, more than 100 regional artisan food and craft vendors and drop-in workshops.
Tag sales featuring jewelry and accessories, repurposed, gently used household items and clothing, a plant and bulb sale, a hay maze and hayrides, pony rides, and a haunted house are among the annual activities that have become favorites over the years.
A new event added this year is archery sponsored by Canyon Ranch.
Admission to Harvest Festival is $7 for adults and children under 12 are admitted free.
There is no charge for parking in the Garden’s lots.
