Pumpkin Days Celebration

October 18 @ 10:00 AM - October 19 @ 5:00 PM

| Member admission:$4 adults, $2 children ages 3-15. Non-member admission: $11 adults, $7 children ages 3-15. Kids under 3 are free

Celebrate the season with our traditional autumn festival. This fun-filled family day is full of fun activities, yummy food and, of course, pumpkins! Pick our your prized pumpkins, assemble a scarecrow to take home, jump in the moon bounce, play games and see Tyler’s glorious fall colors on display during a hay wagon tour. This is an event you won’t want to miss!

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. Strollers are welcome on the shuttle. Parking at the Arboretum is reserved for handicapped parking.

Because this is a fundraising event, no free guest passes will be accepted on October 18-19. Entry fees are $11 for non-member adults, $7 for non-member children, $4 for member adults, $2 for member children and all children under three years old are free. Some activities require tickets. Tickets and ticket packages will be available for purchase on site during Pumpkin Days.

In addition to many free activities and activities that require tickets, we also have a fun line-up of free entertainment for both days.
