Halloween Happenings

Bring little ghouls and ghosts to the gardens for family-friendly Halloween fun!

When you feel a chill in the air and see pumpkins everywhere, you know it's almost Halloween — and Phipps' spook-tacular gardens are the perfect place for your family to celebrate! Ghosts and goblins of all ages can come to the Conservatory in costume for a day of festive activities, all free with regular admission. Our youngest ghoulish guests are also invited to sink their teeth into healthy and delicious snacks, delight at wickedly carved pumpkins and pot their very own creepy plants. There will be kid-friendly entertainment and a face painter throughout the event. Plus, in a wicked addition, a witches' brew display will come to life with snakes, newts and toads to meet.
