Be a part of The Holden Arboretum's annual celebration, Goblins in the Garden and be guaranteed a wickedly cool Halloween. Enjoy the decorated gardens while your family has a blast. Bring your children and furry four-legged friends in their best costumes for an unforgettable day of trick-or-treating, leaf trails, cornstalk maze, straw pyramid climb, face- and hand-painting, wagon rides, live entertainment, food and the traditional Scarecrow Row.


Remember, this is a rain or shine event and pets should remain on leashes during their visit.



Scarecrow Row


Scarecrows have long held a traditional place in the gardens and at fall celebrations.


This year, area clubs, teams, classes and families are invited to design a scarecrow and compete for votes during our Goblins in the Garden celebration.


The entry deadline for designs is Sept. 2. Scarecrows must be completed and at Holden for installation by Wed. Oct. 5. To learn more, download a copy of the guidelines and entry form.
