Free to all, the Art in the Garden Festival is an all day event featuring art, music, and conservation-based educational workshops for children and adults. The festival takes place in the 3-acre Demonstration Garden. This tranquil setting not only has shown itself to be the ideal classroom for workshops during the festival, but the idyllic place to soak up the art and music the festival presents. The 2017 Art in the Garden Festival is sure to be better than ever! Attendance has grown tremendously since its conception in 2012 and the feedback has been consistently positive. With the addition of the amphitheater, attendees can listen to live music in an even more enchanting atmosphere.We are looking for artists/craftsmen who would like to display (and sell) their works. We are also seeking those who have special knowledge of a nature-related topic or hobby that would like to share or demonstrate to small groups in a workshop setting
. Sample topics include woodworking, pond-making, meditation, fine art, GPS, basket-weaving, gardening, fishing, landscaping with stones, lapidary, etc. No great event such as the Art in the Garden Festival is possible without a great team of volunteers. Whether you would like to help out the day of the event, in the days leading up to the festival, or just in some of the planning and preparations, let us know! Last but not least,the Art in the Garden Festival is a free offering to the public but it costs us money! Please contact us for information about our sponsorship opportunities or donating items for the
silent auction fundraiser.
