Harvest Festival :: Hughes Conservatory (mid August  through November 15)

With autumn comes harvest time, and what better way to recognize that than with a good ol‘ fashioned Harvest Festival. Celebrate the abundance of Iowa’s fields and savor the colors and flowers of autumn with a festive display. See an unbelievably detailed g-scale railroad display created by Applied Imagination that transports the fall harvest while passing by replicas of favorite buildings from Iowa State University’s historical campus.

Treasures from the Attic :: Hughes Conservatory (November 17 through January 10)

Each holiday season, many families carry down from the attic treasured family holiday decorations collected over the years. This holiday season, Reiman Gardens will do the same, taking a cue from holiday displays from the past. A new enchanting exhibition will bring back the topiary and 15-foot poinsettia tree from years ago and introduce a new holiday tradition with a whimsical holiday train that will enchant and amaze visitors young and old!
