Flower & Garden Show

 

FGS

 

This oasis on the fairgrounds features winding pathways through beautiful gardens grown by local organizations. More than 90 demonstrations will be held throughout the fair, with experts offering advice on such topics as pumpkin carving, flower arranging and proper plant care. Climb on the giant Adirondack chair, or pose with the Barrel Monster family for a unique photo op.

 

The Flower & Garden Show competitions feature cut perennial and annual flowers, scented herbs and potted plants. The colorful arrangements inside, the bonsai exhibit and demonstrations and the themed gardens outside are intended to be both educational and artistic. The Flower Show often inspires amateur gardeners to green their thumbs by planting their own personal gardens.

 

The Flower Show is located near the Village of Yesteryear and Heritage Circle. Open daily from 9 a.m. to 9:45 p.m., except Oct. 12 when the exhibit will open at 4 p.m.

 

Also, don’t forget to visit us on Monday, Oct. 23 from 10 a.m. to noon for our annual Mum Sale!
