The Owasso Bouquet of Gardeners Spring Festival will have lots of vendors with spring and gardening related items.
“Regardless of geographical region or culture gardening is perhaps the most common and shared experience of Nature,” said S. Kelley Harrell. Owasso will soon celebrate this shared experience at the 9th annual Owasso Bouquet of Gardeners Spring Festival, to be held Saturday, May 4 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Tyann Plaza. A huge variety of vendors will offer plants, vegetables, herbs, cacti, yard art, baskets, orchids, Amish pastries and much more.
Attendees to the festival will enjoy a diverse selection of vendors such as Angel Wing Glazine, owned by Kimberly Holcomb, who creates ceramics, pots, yard art, and a variety of garden items. Tina Bush’s Creations by Tina include charming hand-painted cotton overalls, sundresses and garden hats. Tastefully Simple, by Christy Johnson, offers seasonings, food mixes, desserts and more. Aberdean Farms, owned by Sam and Carina Slavens, will have herbs, veggies, ceramic pots, hanging plants and pecans. Shirley Miller will sell daylilies, and Chaos Cactus, owned by Terri Mann, will offer cacti plants, succulents and pottery. Marsha Butler of Summerside Winery will present wine and meads for purchase. Clem and Donna Haddox of DC's Juntiques will sell their rustic lawn garden items, and Julianne Hayes of the Linnaeus Teaching Garden will hand out materials about the garden.
Enjoy music while you shop, including the ukulele group from 3rd through 5th grades and the choir from Northeast Elementary in Owasso, under the direction of Cara Grant.
The Spring Festival is hosted by the Owasso Bouquet of Gardeners. Members of the garden club, including many Master Gardeners, will be available at the welcome tent to answer your gardening questions. Also at the welcome tent, they will be giving away door prizes every half hour and will have a drawing at the end of the day for a large prize.
The garden club uses proceeds from the Spring Festival to fund an annual scholarship to an Owasso graduating senior. They also fund beautification projects throughout the city. The mission of the Owasso Bouquet of Gardeners is to stimulate interest in gardening, to gain horticultural knowledge, to promote civic beautification and to protect the environment.
Don’t miss a great day of fun, shopping and all things gardening at the annual Owasso Bouquet of Gardeners Spring Festival on Saturday, May 4 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Tyann Plaza, located at 9541 N. Owasso Expressway.
