The expansive property will allow for plenty of distance between shoppers and vendors and excellent parking. Easy access and great visibility will help make Garden Fair the experience our visitors expect.

A great selection of small trees, shrubs, berry bushes, annuals, perennials, and products for your home and garden will please every gardener.

Vendors from around the region bring their inventory to you: You’d have to drive hundreds, even thousands of miles to enjoy the selection that’s available at Garden Fair. Garden Fair is one-stop shopping for everything for your home and garden!

Food vendors will offer lunch while you shop, and covered pavilions provide a place to relax and enjoy a break.

Masks are required for vendors and shoppers.

 

All proceeds benefit the Foundation of the State Arboretum and its programs.
