See Giant Pumpkins this Weekend at New York Botanical Gardens

It's Giant Pumpkin Weekend at NYBG!

On Saturday and Sunday, October 26 & 27 from 10 am to 6pm, come see what Thrillist called one of the best NYC exhibits to share on social media

Some may think mummies, werewolves, and other monsters are the highlight of the Halloween season, but nothing tops the monstrous, gargantuan gourds that headline Giant Pumpkin Weekend. Get up close and personal with some of the largest pumpkins in the world, meticulously cared for every year by elite growers and brought to NYBG in collaboration with the Great Pumpkin Commonwealth.

Meet the Growers: Q&A and Seed Harvesting

October 26; 1 & 3 p.m.
October 27; 12 p.m.
Throughout the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden

Watch as we harvest the pumpkins’ immense seeds, ask the growers your most pressing questions about growing these giants, and snap a selfie next to these massive pumpkins to see how you measure up!
