As if this year couldn’t get spookier, Busch Gardens Williamsburg has added more dates to their Halloween Harvest limited capacity event.
The event replaces the renowned Howl-o-Scream event. But whereas Howl-o-Scream lasted through the month of October, Halloween Harvest now stretches into November.
The newly added dates are as follows:
- Tuesday, Oct. 20: 5 – 9 p.m.
- Monday, Oct. 26: 5 – 9 p.m.
- Friday, Nov. 6: 5 – 9 p.m.
- Saturday, Nov. 7: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., 3: – 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. – midnight.
- Sunday, Nov. 8: 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. & 5 – 9 p.m.
To accommodate Virginia’s Phase 3 guidelines, Busch Gardens Williamsburg is operating with enhanced health and safety protocols, including sanitizing and temperature screenings.
Face coverings are still required to enter the park.

Six of the European villages will be open for guests to explore, and monsters of all sorts can be spotted lurking in designated areas of the park. Ghouls and Goblins will begin roaming around at 5 p.m. and Saturdays at 8 p.m., according to a news release from Busch Gardens.
Like Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s past two limited capacity events, food is also a major aspect. Halloween-themed specialty drinks and select beers from around the world are available, along with fall-inspired foods and desserts.
In the spirit of Halloween, the park is also offering contactless trick-or-treating for kids, available 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. and 3 – 7 p.m. in designated areas.
To access the park, reservations must be made in order to allow ample space for social distancing.
