Frequently Asked Questions


Take a hayride across Cheekwood’s gorgeous grounds, play in the pumpkin patch and so much more during FALL FOR CHEEKWOOD!

FALL FOR CHEEKWOOD is a high-end take on an old-fashioned fall festival, with hay rides, live entertainment, lawn games, a Southern supper, bier garten and s’mores - the best of fall! FALL FOR CHEEKWOOD is an all-family benefit supporting Cheekwood’s mission to make art and gardens accessible to everyone, specifically through the free school tours we offer year-round. Your family’s support during FALL FOR CHEEKWOOD will help fund visits by the 10,000 school children from across the Southeast who are able to experience the wonder of Cheekwood free of charge, giving access to children who may not otherwise have the opportunity.

And what better way to support our focus on education than to involve your family and kids? Don’t miss your chance to enjoy Cheekwood’s signature blend of timeless elegance and serious family fun for a great cause. Join us at FALL FOR CHEEKWOOD during Cheekwood Harvest on Sunday, September 18 from 4 - 7 pm—see you at the S’mores bar.
