Harvest Days

Harvest at Newfields is back with a month-long celebration! During the day, guests are invited to explore the magnificently decked out garden with thousands of Indiana-grown pumpkins blanketing the campus. Enjoy a cornucopia of dynamic horticulture displays in the crisp fall air. Weekends will bring special activations from many of Newfields’ most beloved partners such as Sun King Brewing Co., West Fork Whiskey Co., Oliver Winery, McClure's Apple Orchard, and many others. October at Newfields will be filled with plenty of Instagram-worthy moments, art making activities for our littlest guests, world travels via beer tastings, visits from local vendors and much more!
