Celebrate Nature and the Changing Seasons at the State Botanical Garden’s Fall Festival

Bring the family to the State Botanical Garden of Georgia on Saturday, November 9 for a Fall Festival celebrating nature, discovery and creativity. From 10:00 am to 1:00 pm children and their families will be able to learn about migrating birds, build structures using natural materials, play in fall leaves, create arts and crafts, and taste familiar and maybe not-so-familiar fall harvests. Local artist Chris Taylor will create an outdoor land art installation during the festival, guiding children to help with this creation. This event is free, but donations for the planned Children’s Garden will be accepted.

Before the free festival, the Family Hiking Club that will meet in front of the Visitor Center at 9:00 am. Wear comfortable clothing and sturdy shoes to explore the woods, streams, and gardens. Cost for the Family Hiking Club is $5/person or $15 per family (children 3 and under are free.)
