Harvest Days

Celebrate the fall season with the return of Harvest Days at VanDusen Botanical Garden. Our veggie garden and maze area will be transformed for fall with fun photo areas, activities and entertainment, tasty treats, and more. 

Fun for all ages

Enjoy delicious snacks from a selection of tasty food vendors like Popcorn in the Park, Coffee Bike, BistrotVan, and Melt City Grilled Cheese. 

Explore the garden's autumn highlights afterwards, including sugar maples, ginkgo trees, bald cypress, and the stunning Autumn Stroll. All-day general admission is included with a Harvest Days ticket.

Kids activities

A fall-inspired craft section will be set up for kids while live music plays. Kids can also enjoy finding their way though the scarecrow-themed hedge maze.
