Arbor Day Festival
Time: 11am to 3pm
The Dawes Arboretum Arbor Day Festival is a fun and educational day for everyone and admission is free. Visitors can expect a fun day filled with family-focused learning opportunities including tree climbing, activities and displays.
Children can get an amazing, new perspective on trees by participating in supervised tree climbing. Participants won’t want to miss presentations featuring animals from the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium at noon and 1pm. Purchase lunch from a food truck and plan to stay awhile to enjoy all this celebration has to offer.
Arboretum staff and many of its community and conservation partners host interactive displays offering crafts and activities throughout the day. The first 500 families in attendance receive a free tree to take home and plant in honor of Arbor Day.
