Celebrate the autumnal season at Cheekwood! We’re set to celebrate all things fall during Cheekwood Harvest, part of our year-round lineup of signature seasonal festivals. The changing of the leaves are one of many garden highlights you’ll find as oaks, maples, dogwoods, and other trees greet you with their fall colors. You’ll find activities and experiences designed to appeal to kids, adults and families alike, making this six-week celebration the perfect time for a peaceful solo stroll, a crisp fall family day, or an afternoon date.
More than 5,000 chrysanthemums in deep autumn hues are planted throughout the gardens specifically for Cheekwood Harvest.
Silly and serious, big and small, frightening and friendly-scarecrows created by our Nashville community will invade our gardens again this fall. Get in on the fun of Cheekwood Harvest by assembling a group in your school, workplace, church or neighborhood and designing your own custom scarecrow!
