Atlanta Botanical Garden - FALL FUN!

Enjoy the cooler days and nights of October at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, where fall serves up a harvest of fun events.

Throughout October, both the Atlanta and Gainesville gardens will be stuffed with more than 100 scarecrows created by artists, designers, schools, businesses, and families for Scarecrows in the Garden.

Participants compete for prizes in one of two design categories:  professional and nonprofessional.  Registration is open from August 5 through September 6.

On Thursday evenings at the Atlanta garden, visitors may explore the scarecrows under the glare of flashlights (which they are encouraged to bring) during Fest-of-Ale.  Each week, from 5 - 9 p.m., the beer fest features a variety of fine specialty ales at cash bars and live musical entertainment.  On the night of October 24, check out the Great Pumpkin-Carving Contest.

For youngsters, harvest-themed activities will be on tap on weekends from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and on Sunday, Oct. 27, they can wear their favorite costumes for a day of treats and activities during Goblins in the Garden, held at both gardens from 10 a.m  - 4 p.m.

Scarecrows in the Garden is sponsored by The Home Depot Foundation.  For more information, visit
