Join us for our annual family-friendly, not-to-scary Halloween celebration. Bring your costumed children to trick-or-treat during the daylight hours in the decorated garden setting of our annual Halloween celebration.

Each day will feature musical performances at 10:30am, 12:30pm and 2:30pm. On Saturday, we welcome Musical Mark with his snappy, happy,  danceable music to the Holden stage. On Sunday, Chip and the Munks will serve up stories, songs and smiles during a high-energy musical performance designed to be interactive and inspiring for families.

During Goblins, keep your eyes open for the Pick-Up Stix Stilters who will be entertaining guests, as well as the Walking Tree of Life and get a tree’s perspective on why our forests are important.

The Murch Canopy Walk and Kalberer Emergent Tower will be open during Goblins in the Garden, with tickets available on a first come, first serve basis. Tickets are $4 for adults and $2 for children.


On-going activities from 10am to 4pm include:

  • Trick-or-treat trail
  • Wagon rides
  • Hedge and cornstalk maze
  • Straw pyramid climb
  • Face and hand painting
  • Family crafts
  • Free apples, while supplies last
