Counting down, 
we’re only two weekends away from Pumpkin Days!

On Saturday and Sunday, October 17 and 18, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. each day, come and enjoy fun-filled family days of activities, delicious food from a fun selection of food trucks, live entertainment, and of course, pumpkins. Pick out your prized pumpkin, assemble a scarecrow to take home, and see Tyler’s glorious fall colors on a hay wagon tour. No pre-registration required. FREE ENTRY for members!

Activities will still require tickets for a fee, but thanks to the support of Wawa, admission is free for members. Non-member admission is $11 for adults, $7 for children ages 3 to 15; kids under 3 are free.

Free parking for Pumpkin Days is exclusively at the Penn State Brandywine campus, where visitors can catch the complimentary shuttle bus to and from Tyler Arboretum. See you then!

About Tyler

Today, Tyler is a valued community resource and cultural destination. Open year round*, with 650 contiguous acres and 17 miles of hiking trails, Tyler provides a natural sanctuary for families, children, and adults interested in history, nature, and horticulture.
