Event Details

Spring Festival brings together commercial and educational vendors as well as representatives from community services – all in one place.  The Southeastern Livestock Pavilion will be transformed into rows of vendor booths, both under the roof and in outside areas.


This year’s Festival will have a special focus on Florida-Friendly Landscaping (FFL). Vendors that are certifies FFL landscapers and sell native plants will be highlighted.


There will be 12 educational seminars for adults, presented by Master Gardeners, Extension Agents and vendors. Topics range from how to grow orchids to how to have low-maintenance landscapes that save water and provide wildlife habitat.  All seminars will be in the large, climate-controlled Extension auditorium.


The KidZone is back to provide education and activities for children by bringing together age-appropriate vendors who donate their time. Some highlights for this year include UF Entomology, with displays of bugs and live critters; Florida Automated Weather Network (FAWN); K9 Search and Rescue; Garden Society Railroad with trains that children can run themselves – and live butterfly encounter.

 

There will even be food trucks.
