A Family Celebration of the Fall Harvest Season
Held annually on Columbus Day Weekend

There's nothing like autumn in New England, and there's no better place than Tower Hill Botanic Garden to take in all the season has to offer. In addition to the panoramic view of Mt. Wachusett and the Reservoir, the Garden displays hundreds of trees and shrubs known for their spectacular fall color.
Come for this special 3-day weekend which features live animals, heirloom apples, locally made products, and children's crafts. Tower Hill will be turned into a virtual farmland, featuring beautiful displays of garden produce and a farmer's market, and taste-testing tours of the famous antique apple orchard (2pm each day)-with 119 varieties of pre-20th Century apples.
Activities include children's crafts and a children's scavenger hunt. Hot apple cider, a special harvest menu in Twigs Café, and Massachusetts products for sale from numerous local vendors will round out the weekend. Weather permitting; enjoy a hayride through the trails.
