BBG’s Harvest Festival has earned a reputation for being a quintessential Berkshire family event celebrating the autumn harvest, when the 24-acre Garden is transformed into a vibrant hub featuring family fun and over 100 regional artisan food and craft vendors. Admission to the Harvest Festival is $10 cash for adults; children under 12 are admitted free. There is no charge for parking in the Garden’s lots.
