The Tulsa Garden Center grounds will have a huge variety of plants and gardening items at SpringFest Garden Market and Festival.
Is your garden the one everyone drives by for inspiration, or are you the black sheep gardener of the neighborhood? Whatever your skill level, SpringFest Garden Market and Festival is a must visit for your 2015 garden. Tulsa Garden Center can help you create a great garden that will be the envy of your neighbors and friends. Join the fun at 2435 S. Peoria Ave. on April 10 and 11 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days for the annual SpringFest Garden Market and Festival, where you will find everything needed to create a beautiful garden. There will be a large variety of plants, gardening information, garden art, unique art and craft vendors, a kid’s zone with fun activities, and food and fun for the whole family.
While enjoying the beauty and serenity of Tulsa’s premier park, you will have the opportunity to shop for special garden plants, garden décor and all things garden related. Area plant nurseries will offer the newest and best plant selections for 2015. The popular Linnaeus Teaching Garden pass-along plant tent will be full of plants for sale from the gardens of Linnaeus gardeners and other friends of the Tulsa Garden Center. Take the opportunity to ask any gardening questions you might have of these professional nursery men and women, the Linnaeus Gardeners and the Tulsa Master Gardeners.
Vendors outside and inside the historic Tulsa Garden Center home will offer exceptional craft items and fine art for you, your home and garden. Also inside the mansion you will find a bird house decorating contest and auction, as well as food concessions.
Gardening affiliates of the Tulsa Garden Center expected to attend are Green Country Water Garden Society, Linnaeus Gardeners, Northeastern Oklahoma Beekeepers Association, Tulsa Area Daylily Society, Tulsa Area Iris Society, Tulsa Garden Club, Tulsa Herb Society, Tulsa Rose Society, Tulsa Master Gardeners and Up With Trees.
Bring the whole family and spend a fun-filled day at this spring event. The children’s area will offer multiple entertaining and educational activities. These activities include face painting, balloons, the Adopt-A-Pet van from SPCA, the Reading Van from Tulsa City-County Library and age appropriate gardening activities.
After shopping, guests can visit the beautiful Linnaeus Teaching Garden, a state-of-the-art demonstration garden in Woodward Park, which offers an array of ideas for the home gardener. Be forewarned, a visit to Linnaeus Teaching Garden will trigger another shopping spree.
Mark your calendar now to attend this gardening extravaganza on April 10 and 11, 2015. Proceeds from SpringFest Garden Market and Festival benefit the Tulsa Garden Center education programs.
