Reeves-Reed Arboretum to Celebrate October with Two Fall Festivals

(SUMMIT, NJ) -- Now that summer is a thing of the past, it’s time to celebrate the autumn season upon us. The leaves are changing, there’s a crispness in the air, and fun festivals await at Reeves-Reed Arboretum! The non-profit public garden in Summit will kick off the season with Celebrate Fall on Sunday, October 15, 2023, from 11:00am to 3:00pm. This family-friendly fair will feature fall-themed games, crafts and activities for the kids, photo opportunities throughout the beautiful gardens and woodlands, a spooky Halloween trail, pumpkins, music, an art exhibit, market vendors, festive food, and adorable goats – fun for the whole family! 

A week later, the Arboretum will transform into a ‘biergarten’ on Saturday, October 21, 2023, from 2:00pm to 6:00pm for Oktoberfest. This 21 and older seasonal fete is a signature Put the ‘PUB’ in Public Garden fundraiser for Reeves-Reed Arboretum and will serve up bottomless premium ales, Bavarian-style bratwurst, pretzels, and delicious German side dishes. The afternoon's festivities will be complete with live music by popular oom-pah band, Doppelgänger, and fun lawn games. Break out your lederhosen or dirndl as Oktoberfest attire is highly encouraged! 

Advance registration for both events is recommended as attendance is limited. For full event details and information about these and other upcoming programs at Reeves-Reed Arboretum, visit Reeves-Reed Arboretum is located at 165 Hobart Avenue in Summit, New Jersey.
